Ya thats a good way to describe Capoeira. But really I don’t mainly practice Capoeira as a form of defense, but really as a way to have fun and let go. In Capoeira we don’t just learn the movement, but also the music, history and how to speak Portuguese. Its really a good way to learn about another culture other than my own.
I did take notice you said “inefficient”. I personally have never been in a fight where I had to use Capoeira, But if their ever comes a time where I do have to I have confidence that I will be able to use Capoeira in my defense.
And really all martial arts have a lot of the same fundamentals, but just different ways of expressing them. A lot like languages. They’re all saying the same thing, just they sound differently… So its really not about the style, but the person using it.
Do you practice anything?
Ya I did a little history in Krav Maga, and thats pretty interesting cause it was invented by the Jews in Israel during WWII to protect themselves from the Nazis.
