    For the Capoeirista's at MAP... is this a strictly traditional style kick? Or is it a variation?

    I only did Cap for a few months but that looks a pretty standard version of that kick to me. :)

    I think it's meia Lua de compasso with one hand. You can do it with 2 hands (below), 1 hand or none....I think.

    It's a standard kick, actually one of the first I learnt. I love it, it's great fun to do. Pulling it off like that is another thing though.

    It is great when you see those "fancy" techniques happen. And we all wish we could do them.

    These have all been posted on MAP before - but here's the other capoeira knockout...and a cat playing piano.

    one of my senseis linked that on fb the other day, while the knock out kick itself was impressive, the rest of his jumping around looked pretty lame, and the other guy should have capitalised on that imo

    I wouldn't disagree.

    I really hate to speak bad about people's skills, but...(hah)...I don't think the other guy knew how to take advantage of the situation. I do get the impression that the other guy isn't so good and Aurelio wanted to play with him and get that big kick in...hence the jumping around.

    But what do I know? I'm as stupid as a ham sandwich.

    Yeh, I don't know the fighters well enough to properly comment, but the first few jumps were silly and he should have been taken out or at least engaged before he did get his awesome kick in =p

    I watched it and two things came to mind... that jumping around is sure to put you off your game in a big way. Which it obviously did here. Secondly - there isn't much too much of a way his opponent is going to capitalize on it. His opponent got caught because the other guy put him off his game and came to the table with someone you don't often see. Brilliant put together for the KO.

    The first jump would put you off, personally after seeing nothing happen on the second jump I'd have closed the gap and gone for the take down (but my style could differ greatly from the bouncy guys style)

    but each to their own

    So, obviously capoeira doesn't have the KO count of things like muay thai. But there's a few of these clips floating around now. Do people think that capoeira has a bigger future in MMA? I don't know whether I think it will, but I hope so. In its favour are 1) these knockouts (not so much for the number of them, but the spectacle of them) and 2) the Brazilian connection.

    Are you sure the first kick is capoeira? I learned the same kick in Muay Thai. Dragon whips tail or some such. I guess there is only so many ways to kick someone

    a lot of arts have similar kicks, and its usually the slight nuances of them that define what art it is from. the one i linked is largely considered a TKD kick, but its of a similar style to the OP's video.

    I've not seen much capoeira in MMA, but i would like to, it certainly mixes it all up. I think it introduces more angles that people will have to contend with, and if someone combined it well with a solid ground game etc, I could see someone doing well for a while until people get used to the counters - much like in the ealier days when BJJ people dominated in MMA until people learned to counter it.

    You learned to kick placing your hand on the ground? Obviously lots of styles teach a variation on a spinning hook kick. But the hand placement I've only seen in capoeira.

    I believe capoeira was a lot more common in the old Vale Tudo matches in Brazil. How successful it was is...I don't know. Where is our capoeira expert when we need him? But I think a lot of Brazilian fighters still have experience or dabble in it. Whether that's just to preserve cultural heritage or....Anyway, even Anderson Silva plays:
