Dont know the guys, but the little i have seen made me think i did not want the videos.
"all requirement to black belt" never heard of a capo belt ranking using black belt.
And "ungala Ground fighting"??? Angola misspelling?
And one of them doing Rabo de arraia on the commercial touching the floor with the fingertips only...not good.
But i could be wrong

Oh and of course, you REALLY cant learn capo from vids, it goes wrong so often.

I've never understood the relevance from a martial art point of view Capoeira, as it doesn't seem to have any direct power behind it. It seems flagrantly too aesthetic to be effective. Some performances i've seen seems to put the indiviuals in extremely vulnerable positions to attack. BUt then I know nothing about it.

It worked for the slaves to fight their masters, so i guess it sure has its value as a fighting art.

Look at some of the earlyer discussions on this forum, i have tried to explain some things and some of it came across really well.
Trust me, just like any other art, good capoeira works.
