Ahh the superman punch
I was not expecting to be entertained by this in the hopper, but I was.
He thought it was a dance-off?
ok, a zillions stars to the first person to edit this together with michael jackson's 'beat it'.

In Capoeria's defense, it tends to work better when you're actually trying to hit the other person.
I think this is from that lame movie "Never Back Down" - the "You Got Served" of MMA movies.
You can see a camera around the 0.40 mark
Having watched the trailer, I think this is about the only part of the movie I'd care to watch.
Do you really think there are underground fights with American announcers in warehouses (with no ring set up) with a full P.A. system and full of young, good-looking people... like hundreds and hundreds of them? REALLY?
That occurred to 3am me shortly after submitting this.
Do you really think it matters if it's real? It's amusing.
I bet you stood up in the middle of Star Wars and went "WAIT A MINUTE THOSE ARE JUST PUPPETS! THIS IS ALL FAKE! WHAT THE HELL I WANT MY MONEY BACK."

Fuck, that was great.
Real/fake - exactly what I wanted.

It is definitely from Never Back Down.
I've heard a few semi-credible stories of "underground fights" but most of them involved about ten spectators and a lot of betting. If it's illegal why would you ask all those of kids along? Also, even capoeira guys don't do that crap in a real fight.
A lot more affective than all those "aus".
I'm not even going to try to explain that spelling.
Think back to every fighting game you've played. Who's always the most useless character? That's right, the Capoeria guy. Also he's always Jamaican.
Yes, Dee Jay from Street Fighter, he's looking at you.
:( I got pretty good with Eddy Gordo in Tekken 3 when I stopped mashing buttons like a retard calling for a nurse.
also, this movie is just The Karate Kid if Ralph Macchio were a flaming homosexual
DeeJay doesn't fight Capoeira. And Eddy was illegal to everybody I ever played with because he was impossible to beat. In short, what are you talking about?
also, the most useless guy in every single fighting game is usually the person with the hula hoop.
If its real its funny. If it's staged, it's still funny. Well staged things can be just as good as the real thing, you know, like movies? Remember those?
On a related note, I now have the habit of shouting "FAKE!" at movie screens in theaters.
It's funny because there are people who consider capoeira a legitimate fighting technique.
Like I said:
The guy has obviously done some jiu jitsu but the kicks are capoeira. A lot of stuff in regional is pretty useless but decent capoeira guys are very athletic and flexible. Not my favourite style but not all bullshit either.

Finally a capoeira video on poeTV. Too bad it's this one, but we've gotta start somewhere. At least it's not an Only the Strong clip.
