Capoeira Style (Capoeira Style)
This type of fighting style is based entirely on carribean Capoeira type moves which would involve the likes of round-houses, high kicks, cartwheels, and spinning around on the band or on a knee. Very quick and accurate type attacks which are being utlized in the battle. The Capoeira fighting stlye is like the water which it moves freely like the ocean waves and if you would notice these moves are done in a Rythmic Pattern. The users stance automatically changes and the target would notice that easily.
- Stance: basic stance body facing the adversary, front leg flexed with body weight over it, the other leg strechted back. from the right leg to the left leg again and again.
Effects: Capoeira conditions and develops the muscles, especially the abdominal muscles.
Sub-Styles: Ways Of Using Capoeira
* Regional - Capoeira in a more artistic, open form, giving more way to athletic prowess and training.
* Angola - a more closed, harder style that is closest to the original African systems that came to Brazil.
* Iuna - a totally athletic and artistic form of the art, where the couple inside the "roda" play together, as opposed to one against the other.
Capoeira relies heavily on kicks and leg sweeps for attacks and dodges for defenses. It is not uncommon to not be taught any kind of hand strike of parry, though arm positioning for blocks is taught.
Capoeira also puts a heavy emphasis on ground fighting, but not grappling and locks. Instead, it uses a ground stance (from the basic stance, you just fall over your leg stretched back, flexing it, and leaving the front leg stretched ahead), from which you make feints, dodges, kicks, leg sweeps, acrobatics, etc.
Hand positioning is important but it's used only to block attacks and ensure balance, though street fighting "capoeiristas" use the hands for punches.
When fighting, it is rare to stop in one stance, and in this case, you just "follow" your opponent with your legs, preventing him from getting close, or preparing a fast acrobatic move to take advantage when he attacks. The rest of the time, you just keep changing stances, feinting, and doing the equivalent of boxing "jabs".
