hey guys im new here and just wanted to ask a question from people with experience. i've done capoeira for a lttle over a year now and am wanting to pick a second martial art. i want to look for something that hopefully fills atleast one of these criteria if any of you guys could help.

-defence against multiple opponents
-works well with capoeira
-serious sparring sessions
-good in a real defence situation
-might be able to practice at home or if necessary from books and tapes

all suggestions are appreciated and thanks for your time

Worst troll job ever.

EDIT: But seriously your answer would be Nintaijutsu.

I'll presume innocence until proven guilty.


-defence against multiple opponentsNo martial art can adequately prepare you for this. The only ways to defeat multiple opponents:
1. Get behind a choke point so they can attack only one at a time (ie. a doorway, top of a stair case).
2. Move around and attack the guy on the far flank in order to keep them in your field of vision.

Neither of those methods will guarantee your success. Multiple opponents are always bad - full stop.


-works well with capoeira
-serious sparring sessions
-good in a real defence situationWorks well with capoeira? Anything can work well with anything else. It's up to you to figure out the right adjustments when you train. Remember that martial arts is a very personal pursuit.

Boxing, muay thai, kick boxing, judo, BJJ, some jujitsu, some forms of full-contact karate, have serious sparring and work well in "the street".


-might be able to practice at home or if necessary from books and tapesNone. Any martial art or combative school that claims you can "teach yourself" from books/tapes/DVD should be avoided. Martial arts is a discipline of combat, and you can only effectively train for combat if you train with other people. You can practice some techniques in the air, but that won't teach you the applications in a fight.

I'd suggest Judo.


But if you want something that works well with Capoeira, I've heard Ballet and Riverdancing are good matches.

-defence against multiple opponents

Make multiple friends.




-serious sparring sessions
-good in a real defence situation

Take all of your friends and enroll in judo.




-might be able to practice at home or if necessary from books and tapes

Please don't.



In all seriousness though, I find judo to work well with pretty much anything you want it to. Can't say I've ever done capoeira, so I probably don't know what mixes well with it, but I'm sure judo would give you a pretty unique combo of tools as a capoeirista/grappler. If you do end up taking judo, I demand a future clip of you doing your fancy capoeira-handstand whatnot, then dropping your opponent with o soto gari.

Can we just create a bot that automatically tells people to take Judo whenever they post a "what martial art should I study" thread?
It would make judo nutriding much more efficient.
