Why you should never show off!

Good example of what is useful and what is wasted energy.

WFS as safe as a fight can be, use your judgment.

Re: Why you should never show off!

The comments say that was raw footage from the movie "Never Back Down". It was pretty funny, but looked a little "Holywood" to me.

Re: Why you should never show off!

That makes sense.

It is hard to believe that anyone that would actually be that stupid.

That being said the stupidity of others rarely surprises me. It is a big world and the internet has made the stupidity of others readily available.

It was funny though.

Fake, it's from "Never Back Down". Capoeira makes you strong as hell. Capoeira fighter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jl-_6...eature=related

Capoeira is the most CrossFitish of all Martial Arts. It's nothing but "constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity". I mean, how can people think that a guy like Andre Gusmao or an elder like Mestre espirro (in the link below) can't defend themselves when push comes to shove.

No Capoeira has ever done anything of note in the UFC,even in the Rorian owned days. I'm not saying they can't fight, but there are other styles that are more effective.

Re: Why you should never show off!

Given that most people have limited martial arts/fighting skills, I willing to bet that capoiera training would be enough to take an opponent down in most situations. Plus you'd look cool while doing it. And isn't that what really matters?

It's a matter of training in multiple areas. If all they ever train is Capoeira and nothing else, then they will get completely owned by a wrestler or a guy with good Jits or a boxer or a muay thai guy. As cool and as impressive as those moves are they won't mean crap if you are on the ground. It's made for fun, not for actual fighting. It's the wine cooler of martial arts, it may taste good and after 15 I might get typsy, but it if I want to get drunk I would just stick to the basics of hard liquor and Guinness.
