    "Capoeira Kickboxer" Lots of crap, and some cool moves.

    Hi all, I was idling on youtube and decided to look for some funny capoeira videos ( I find the level of athleticism and all around good mood of typically displayed by capoeirista videos very enjoyable) and found this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neIV9...earch=Capoeira

    Now, it has a stupid name, horrible bagwork, "interesting" punching technique and all that, but my question is, how the fuck does this guy still score some hits? Is it

    a) The others suck even more.

    or

    b) It's dumb luck and athleticism combined.

    P.S. I hate him for that "stand on one leg and kick alot" shit.

    Because 1 - this is point sparring. Woopdy doo if he lands a point since its not really worth a hill of beans in reality

    2 - he's being aggressive. Thats a big part of sparring no matter what.

    3 - Anyone can edit a bunch of clips of themselves sparring (any kind of sparring) and make themselves look super awesome. I could film myself sparring for a month, cut out all the stuff and leave only the times I land a high kick and then say "LOOK HOW GREAT I AM BTW HIGH KICKS ROCK AND ALWAYS LAND M I RITE?"

      Right, that's true. Favorable editing ftw. He's still very athletic, give him that. I'd love to see him get his shit ruined at least once after that stupid fucking superman stumble move he's got.

        Capoeira is awesome.

        It's not fighting, but it's awesome.

              He could use that clip to get some action movie stunt work.

                    So now we know that capoiera can be used in a fight, be affective, win. Old video, but still nice to see again.

                      I didn't know it'd been posted before. I did a search, but I guess my search-fu sucks. Back to meditating.

                      And no, we don't know capoeira can be used in a fight. Cause those were'nt fights.

                        Holy hell, his kicks might look cool, but his punches suck big cocks. And why is he the only one wearing a helmet at some part of the video?

                          Despite popular belief there is nothing in that vid that suggests this guy acutally does capoeria. He looks more like a gymnast mixed with TKD. Even during the "play" squeance at 4:52 it looks like he never really did Capoeria but is trying to (badly) imitate what he's seen. He's just missing alot of things he doesn't have that rythm and flow that you see in real capoeria.

                          As far as his fighting, it SUCKS. The tagging pple in point sparring and he doesn't seem to have any real KO power. He's athletic but I would eat him for lunch easily.

                          If you want to see REAL Capoeira in a fight look a Jean Silva or find the Capoeria VT promotion that was in Brazil a few years ago. The vids were floating around the internet but I can't seem to find them now.

                            Even Jean Silva only does Capoeira type things for comedy value when he's already kicking someone's arse.

                              Wrong. Please notice he is wearing yellow and green.
