Capoeira kick KO from Brazil


The base arts of Mixed Martial Arts are now well established: boxing, BJJ, Folkstyle/Freestyle/Greco, Judo, karate, and Muay Thai lead the list. As MMA was born from Vale Tudo matches in Brazil, it is fitting that the Afro Brazilian martial art of Capoeira just got a big shot to the face of recognition, from the largest city in Brazil, as Cairo Rocha lands a 'Gancho Giratoria' on Francisco Neves at the Brazilian Fighting Championships on Friday.

^^ that's not the same kick. The one carlson is doing is the one where you are laying on your back, put one hand on the ground, jump off and kick high and land on your butt. The mei lua de compasso is a completely different kick.
