How can you make your ponte better? Sucão goes all deterministic and says you either got it or you don't, Azul loses it in one day, Varal uses magnets to help him through, and Bonzinho just loves to love it, man. And Part 2 has us disagreeing about whether capoeira would be any better if there were a global certification program for teachers. C ...…

In the spirit of looking forward in the new year, we take stock of capoeira's best and worst attributes. Sucão says it may be going extinct, Varal stands up for capoeira's dignity, Bonzinho gets a bill passed in the Brazilian Congress granting him land rights in the Amazon, and Azul picks the best best thing ever.…
 
Are there ways to get better at capoeira other than by training capoeira? Probably not, but we take our best shot. Our respective thoughts on supplemental training and ways to get less cushion and more pushin for your macaco (TM Bonzinho, 2018). In Part 2 we "answer" a listener's question about how to follow your own path without being labeled ...…

We're going crab-style in Part 1, dissecting queda de quatro. Using it as just a transitional move, why we get there in the first place, and butterfly stroking into a ponte. In Part 2 we talk about playing someone who's much more experienced and much higher ranked than you. Varal tries to make friends, Sucao has the face-blindness and mistakes ...…
 
In this episode, we try a new format: movies! For our first crack, we discuss Drunken Master 3 and the portrayal of drunken boxing kung fu in film.
 
Continuing where we left off last time with vingativa, we talk about a bunch of crazy counters that are mostly made up by Azul. The tornado, the au de costa, the truck...we can imagine them all. And Part 2 is an honest talk on the good and the bad with capoeira internet videos. Are they inspiring? Are they discouraging? Are they part of the ora ...…
 
In Part 1 we try to discuss vingativa despite never even coming close to a good explanation on what vingativa actually is. Apparently you have to consummate it, whatever it is. Sucão hops in to bring us a theory on why too much fine art has damaged his iliofemoral ligament, and hence his armadas make his hip grumpy. Part 2 sees us discussing fo ...…
 
We got a chance to talk to Grandmaster Jimmy Wong at the Legends of Kung Fu tournament in Houston, TX. Grandmaster Wong founded the Legends of Kung Fu tournament (originally called Taiji Legacy) and is the US representative of the World Chin Woo Federation. Santanu and Ariel pick his brain on the origins of the tournament, trends he has seen ov ...…
 
We're way out of our wheelhouse on this one, but fortunately Dr. Debora Ferreira, a professor of Portugese and Latin American Studies took the time to be our guide. She sat down with Varal, Bonzinho, and Azul to chat about what's going on in Brazil these days, the dubious WhatsApp political ads, gang violence, police violence in the favelas, Bo ...…
 
Is armada the worst kick in the world? Azul certainly thinks so. We get us a good ol' fashioned debate between her and Sucão, who breaks down two different types of armadas in an effort to prove the kick's roda-worthiness. Part 2 is all about running a roda. Broken knees, angry ex-girlfriends, and self-sufficiency in your students. Plus, do gir ...…
 
Part 1 is hands-off with au sem mão, but we barely even get started before getting bogged down arguing what this move actually is. Sucão and Azul debate the this move's ontological status - where's the upper body? Are the legs over the head? Bonzinho and Varal sit ringside with nothing helpful to say. Part 2 is our Top 4 tips for having a clean ...…
 
Automation continues to be a hot topic on the podcast! Santanu has a new blog he's been working on that we discuss called Robots and AI Watch. In martial arts, we talk about staying prepared for the worst-case scenarios. It's possible automation can create a worst-case scenario for society if we are not prepared!Check out Santanu's blog here: h ...…
 
OTS discusses the best spotlight move out there - amazonas. We discover the snap, pop, and possibly crackle of this one-armed, upside down, posed martelo. For Part 2 we're parting the curtain on how we hash out all of our theories. OTS comin' atcha live. Sucão introduces an idea he had about the relationship between higher-ranked people having ...…
 
In Part 1 we explore au de cabeça. Can you break your neck? How do you make a tripod? Would Jodie Foster do an au de cabeça if you asked her? Part 2 has us responding to a listener's email about our body types episode. What does it mean to be successful in capoeira? Is OTS too dismissive of people with physical limitations? Can you only be succ ...…
 
Our Halloween Special episode. After much confusion regarding the existential status of our hosts, we hit the ground lurching with the terrifying origin story of capoeira. Then Bonzinho administers a capoeira trivia game (cue much shame from your other hosts). And Sucão finishes the day with a story of a peculiar, haunted takedown he witnessed ...…
 
Is automation going to result in a "weaker" society? Let's talk about what the convenience of automation and quick, easy access to information might mean for us in the long term. There are some martial arts philosophies we can cultivate now that could help us navigate an uncertain future.
 
After 12 episodes, we've finally made it over to the ginga. We all think of it as a move, but is it really just a transition? Or is every move just a transition to the next move? This podcast gets zen on yo ass we try to identify this mysterious animal called "ginga." And that's the end of the harmony. Part 2 brings much disagreement about legi ...…
 
Robots, networked screens, AI, and other technologies are starting to replace humans in several different jobs. Progress is nice, but what impact does that have on the people these technologies replace? Adaptation is key! Be like water...
 
In Part 1 we start off with some tips all about the atabaque. As usual, Sucão takes it too far - his relationship with the atabaque is not PG13. Part 2 has us discussing different ceilings in capoeira and how to slide around them. We explore some self-imposed barriers like fear of the roda and whether you can be a true capoeirista if you're not ...…
 
It's common to see martial arts training for self defense being built on a foundation of fear. Santanu and Ariel discuss the downsides of that foundation to one's personal safety, and how training with this mindset can create a false sense of security.
 
We've been talking a lot about combative energy at Austin Kung-Fu Academy lately. What is it, and how does it enhance our training?
 
In the week leading up to the Legends of Kung Fu Tournament in Houston, TX, we talk tournaments! What should you expect if you're attending? We talk about the value of training for a tournament such as Legends of Kung Fu, the positive aspects of the tournament environment, and also some of the negatives.…
 
The episode that almost never was. We begin already furious with each other and go straight into whether rasteira de mao is any good. A great way to take someone down safely? Or too spammy and inelegant? Part 2 has Azul take the lead with some observations on other sport communities and how they compare to capoeira. What makes the capoeira comm ...…
 
If you do a handstand on a spinning body (like the Earth) isn't that a hand spin? We're characteristically divided on our advice: either it's the hips, or it's the atom you select to spin on, or it's the breakdancers you talk to. Then it's on to how strange and difficult becoming a teacher can be. It's in the personality, or it's in the curricu ...…

We go overboard on meia lua de compasso. Varal endorses foot switching but not one-handed meia luas, Sucao trains it so he can stop time and go in reverse, Bonzinho weeps at the sight of a 1000-year kick, and Azul predicts someone's time of death based on their technique. Then 3 of us debate the merits of running family classes compared to stan ...…
 
CM Versatil and his Masters degree in Counseling join us to talk about flirting, sex, batizados, bystander intervention, and emboscadas (ambushes). Note: Versatil was being driven through Nevada while we recorded and sometimes the aliens interfered with his audio. I hope everything is intelligible, and any mistakes or technical glitches are min ...…
 
What should I look for in a good martial arts school? That's a good question! We tackle it this episode, mentioning several things to look for including school culture, class atmosphere, scheduling and financial considerations, and more.
 
Join us for an extended discussion on an Angola class Sucão took and an open roda Azul and Bonzinho attended. We learn how to buy the game, some explanation for hand balanço, that a chair won't judge your meia lua de compasso, and that you should always call ahead. We leave off with a short discussion of flirting and overt sexual behavior at ro ...…
 
We interview Susan Schorn, author of "Smile At Strangers And Other Lessons In The Art Of Living Fearlessly"! We discuss lots of stuff including her new book, lifelong engagement with the martial arts, and women's self-defense!
 
We finally get around to talking about bananeira after referencing it in so many other episodes, going over details like a tucked pelvis, tight core, and not pooping your pants. Then our guide to aging gracefully, which is not so much a guide as an argument. We're the youngest old people you'll meet in capoeira, so we're the perfect podcast to ...…
 
What is grappling exactly? Does that mean ground fighting? We discuss these questions and also what grappling is in the context of Chinese martial arts.
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal Azul vs everyone else on esquiva lateral. What details are important? How can we use it best? Should we even be wasting your time talking about this move? Why is Bonzinho stuck in bananeira when ...…
 
Our student Stephanie joins us to talk about dealing with injuries while training in the martial arts. Don't let your injuries get you down! Heal up, and keep on moving!

If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal We offer some advice on how to use martelo sparingly, or, in Azul's case, how to go for the jaw. Then it's on to the pros and cons of ranking systems. How motivating are they? How divisive? Last, ...…
 
Changes in values or beliefs lead to changes in the way we perceive the world. We call these paradigm shifts. What kinds of paradigm shifts do we experience in martial arts, and in technology?
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal Failing to teach macaco, failing to help students, failing to get more people to like Varal. Our failure episode. Then we turn our attention to how not to feel embarrassed during demos and how to ...…
 
*Quality Control* - Hey, looking back on it, this episode is rough for audio quality. If that bothers you, I suggest you start with Episode 5. --Varal The inaugural episode. Movement spotlight on au for our intro before a dive into creativity. What does it mean to be creative in capoeira? Can you train it systematically? Is it useful? Closing o ...…
 
Dealing with problematic students (or problematic parents of students) is a tricky subject rife with various pitfalls for instructors and martial arts schools. We discuss the impact of problematic behaviors, how communication is such a huge part of the process for dealing with bad situations involving these types of students, and more!…
