Capoeira How-Tos

Hello. These are some Capoeira instructional videos from Youtube. These things are popping up all over the place, so do explore.

Disclaimer: I, this blog, Blogger, nor the people associated with this blog, take any legal responsibility for any injuries which may come about as the result of practising the techniques in the following videos.

Unlegally, I would say that learning these things takes a little stupidity, a lot of courage, and a lot more falling down. Do take care of your own safety. If you persist in practising these (you know who you are!), I would unlegally suggest starting the movements small and working up from there.

I hope you understand Polish! Muahahaha! Or was it Czech? Or maybe it's Croatian? Actually, I don't know what he's saying. But he goes into a lot more detail than this guy. That said, if you're going down the pig-headed road of learning this movement, do start small, like this guy(no need to do a 180 degrees macaco right off the bat). He's speaking Slovakian. Oh, just take note of what he points out.

Au Batido
Well, you know what they say, 'Those who can, do. Those who cannot, teach.' Yes, in case you are wondering, that Japanese fellow has no groin muscles. Now you know why male capoeiristas do front splits even though they hurt like crap.

Sorry, I couldn't find one in English. Remember, tiny hops to bigger hops, and don't dislocate anything!

Au Cortada (I would call it a one-handed Au Reversao or Reversado, argh, a rose by any name...)

Stay Safe (you can get sexy later!),
