que bosta de video. capoeira. nao e ficar pulando que nen macaco. capoeira e gingas e golpes e derrubes e lutas e ate defesa pessoal. agora posta um video na net. e não mostra um golpe de capoeira. video disgraçado. bando de filhos de umas putas. capoeira e lutas porra . não so ficar gingando seus otarios

SarahorAssassinsCFan says:

this reminds me greatly of taekwondo as, without the music, this would resemble a mixture of our training drills for control, accuracy, strength and balance. Also the logo is very similar to our one which also symbolises that the two arts are both centred around kicks (in taekwondo it is because of the need to de-horse riders).

yustinus wilman says:

aku semangat lihat dan nonton capoeira tetapi saya minta kalau bisa gerakan gerakan dasarnya nama nama gerakan dan lagu lagu capoeira di kirim di youtube boleh

EMR80 says:

Some people don’t understand they are playing. The first time I seen Capoeira was in 1987 the art is effective they can kick you in some many ways. I seen two men kick so fast I could not see their feet at all. I think the are more shape than most Karate and TKD people I seen. This is coming from a Boxer, TKD, and Muay Thai person. I keep an open mind when it come too Martial Arts. A friend invited me to learn Capoeria, but never got around to coming.

steven tran says:

thats an opinion, but ninjitsu is a good martial art though i think all martial arts are

Fabizm1970 says:

I am 41 and I took up Capoeira 4 years ago. My Mestre taught me how to build up to the flips. Now I can do Macacos, altos, tesoura and other Senzala moves. The power of Senzala is a demonstration of athletic ability, but Angola style is a game for clever opponents. Not that one is better than the other, but knowing both will give you a superior game ability. If you want to learn how, find a good Mestre and he will guide you. Good luck, I hope you find what you are looking for.

This so cool i might sign up for this

aroblesCG says:

I can assure you that the people who can do cool spinning kicks and flips and make it look easy didn’t start out that way. It took them years of practice to achieve it. It may not happen overnight, but with enough small steps, you can get there.

Vusal La-Ahad says:

Ninjitsu is the best martial art and it is a life lesson

xskullxkissesx says:

i wish my body was strong enough to support me for doing all the flips and kicks 🙁 *keeps dreaming*

Azesoteric says:

absolutely right but still missing a little…..capoeira was found of angola and youroba ritual to enter the stage of Obatala and Babaolo( stages sage and priesthood)……….and was brought to brazil by those captured slaves..thats how we get maculele and angola those are ritual dances thats why old capoeira sages pour or say libation before the start of a roda…..i am not a contra mestre and i know of this cause i am an african. living in the caribbean…tsk tsk tsk

Tem capoerista bom na roda…
Saudações do Brasil….

DivineBanana says:

TheWolven12 says:

Today we had a German dance teacher come into our school and teach us a little capoeira. I really, really enjoyed it. I think it’s different, it’s engaging, and most of all it’s fun. Don’t get me wrong, it was just one session. We just learn the basic jengaa moves. I found it pretty easy to do, the kicking and the ducking. … Actually, I found it ALOT easier, compared to our street dance. I popped my shoulder on the street dance, but with capoeira, it’s flowing, energetic and pretty gentle. 😀

Serge Kannon says:

No argument. You are right. I contacted the person who taught me and it was I who misheard his pronunciation. Even if i hadn’t called him, I would have nothing to say about your argument. Thanks for correcting me! 🙂 Now I no longer have to look like an ass by calling it capoharra. I never liked that word.
