I THOUGHT BOB’S BURGERS WAS EXAGGERATING WHEN THEY ANIMATED THE CAPOEIRA OMG SEXY DANCE FIGHTING

Cool karate recital
Amateurs just learning. Look at this.The actual stuff is KILLER and AMAZING.
Also, the history of it? Pretty fucking interesting.
”In this environment [of hostile slavery], capoeira was born not as a fighting style, but as a hope of survival. It was a hope of survival because they would say they were dancing when a colonist came along but really they were practicing fighting and preparing to fight back. A tool with which an escaped slave, completely unequipped, could survive in the hostile, unknown land and face the hunt of the capitães-do-mato, the armed and mounted colonial agents who were charged with finding and capturing escapees. So although they were outnumbering them without weapons they were hopeless but once they had learned how to fight they could break free.” [x]
There’s also this video, where ONE SINGLE KICK in the style of capoiera fighting, KNOCKS A GUY OUT. The fight only lasts TWENTY FUCKING SECONDS.
