Re: What Aikido should learn from Capoeira

In all honesty, I think Capoeira is incredible!! There's a dojo here that practice in great spots by the ocean etc... Lord knows I do not have the stamina to do most of the moves. But, why can't Aikido just be a simple MA?

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.

Re: What Aikido should learn from Capoeira

Stratos - I must be getting old and missing something - what prompted so many exclamation marks?

Anyway, on the contrary, I think you should criticise ALL martial arts, including your own, just make sure it's constructive and based on fact rather than what someone else told you.
