THATS IT EXCATLY. Thanks Urban Advenger. I am learning that since my main and only attack I ever do is from my feet. I cant attack with punches at all. I just saw some people doing it at a gas station today. I should have asked them to go all out on me. I can never learn something unless my life is at stake. Wierd if you asked me. But thanks again for finding that for me.

You learn through repetition like anyone else. You don't learn by having someone kick the crap out of you. When you say things like this it irritates people and makes you look like a fool. And are you honestly saying you can't throw a punch? Just kicks? Get into a class and have a teacher teach you something. Stop typing thinking that people will find you quirky and interesting.

That popping sound is the noise my last nerve just made after you worked it.

Also Capoeira isent exaclly a fighting style, its more a dance style. Honestly if your going to go on patrol and someone is getting mugged and you try to do some backflip smiral kick on them, you will get hurt. You will look like a strait fool.

Capoeira is very interesting style for YOU to choose, all show no go. Interesting.

Capoiera is a fantastic workout from what I know. As far as a effective self defense art it is most certainly no good. Can you learn a couple things from it sure, but it is not what you would want to bet your life on in defending yourself.

If you want to defend yourself please don't do this.

Stick with the Jujitsu for sure. A lot of the "small circle" techniques and the grappling will be extremely valuable.

Basics kid, basics.

http://www.resist.com/updates/2010/AUG_10/USMC-KillOrGetKilled-1.pdf

Like Silver Sentinel said: repetition. Practice.
Shadowbox, kick whatever.
Get a heavy bag if you can, if not improvise.

Work on HOW to hit, basic hitting techniques, and DEFENSE.
Get down basics, then add in more specific techniques or tricks.

Save the fancy stuff for the photo shoots or charity time, not real street time.

Capoeira is absolutely, (in the words of Skyman) Awesome Sauce!!! I love the art for it's form and fluidity. Not to long ago I came across another beautiful style hidden within dance. The Korean form of dance fighting that was so deadly it was banned by the Japanese during their occupation of Korea. It is called Taekkyeon, and it is comprise of 100% pure EPIC WIN.

Good luck finding a school or teacher though. Sad I have looked, and it is almost exclusively taught in Korea, with only a few exceptions. Sad

I understood that Capoeria
was developed
- totally on the QT -
by slaves whos' feet were chained together -
right to left foot.

They had to drop to their hands and lift both feet in the air.

They, as many did, hid the moves in dance, yes?

not really but it does look pretty cool, flashy, but still effective.

I hate that scene from that movie. No good capoeirista would do that. I've practiced capoeira for a few years and do think it has a lot of martial application. You just have to look past the flash. Capoeira is based on evasion. It teaches you to blend with an opponent and it teaches some effective ground movement. It show you how to kick from awkward positions. Check out capoeira angola. It's less flash. I'm not saying it's the end all be all of martial arts, but no martial art is. You have to study several and pick and choose what works for you. But saying that it has nothing to offer and is just a dance is ridiculous. Many martial arts were hidden and practiced as dances. Capoeira has a lot to offer as a martial art.
