Here are some things Aikido should incorporate into its system from Capoeira:
Time I've trained in Aikido: 20+ years
Time I've trained in Capoeira (but not at present): 4.5 years
Conclusion: Capoeira has nothing to teach Aikido.
But, as an Aikidoist, I did learn a few things that affected and influenced my training. I just cannot sit out most roda's, when I pass one by.
So, there you are.
