Sure, I mention about as much. It may be a million to one shot, considering the need for an intervening, momentum building move. Is this not the way that capoeira is generally played/taught already--with an emphasis on misdirection, changes in direction, angles and levels in order to land the attack? I think the lack of grappling is due to capoeira being primarily a striking art, if we want to get into categorizations and I, personally, am okay with that. Muay Thai, Karate and many other arts have some standup grappling but are primarily striking arts. People just supplement the standup arts with some grappling training in other arts (BJJ, Judo, Sambo, Wrestling, etc.). So you don't think Grupo Topazio does this? They do train boxing and bjj in addition to capoeira. There are other groups that do this, too. Of the five capoeira groups that I'm aware of here in Houston, I know that one definitely has separate bjj classes for the group members (and the general public, too, I believe). Now, they don't allow bjj in their rodas and, perhaps, one could make the argument that their capoeira movements as a result may lack a preparedness for an opponent who wishes to shoot for the takedown. However, these guys would at least know what to do on the ground due to their crosstraining. As I said before, I think a number of groups crosstrain collectively or have indivduals that do. Admittedly, a lot of others don't, but that gets into objectives and may stray from the topic at hand.
