No other teacher has the knowledge base and courage to share this truth with you, except for me. I hope now that you take this knowledge and share it for the betterment of all humanity. Plus this video is cool and funny. You'll like it.

RACISM AND SEXISM IN CAPOEIRA EXPOSED IN MY DEBATE WITH VAQUEIRO CAPOEIRA

Image
This is actually a reply I wrote to +Vaqueiro Capoeira in my DESTRUCTION OF A DISSENTER blog. My response to Vaqueiro...who I think at heart is probably a well meaning person, however misinformed and misguided he may be...is vintage articulate ,article linked, academically sourced annihilation of the position that any Cardio Capoeirista on planet Earth can hope to take. As usual.

However, this debate and discussion raises so many important points delving into racism, incompetent instruction, classism, White Priviledge, sexism, and includes a scorching illuminating comment from a Black Woman Capoeirista whom I never had the pleasure to meet by the name of "Kimbandeira" that is so very illuminating...that I had to post the whole of my response and hers in its own blog entry.





+Vaqueiro Capoeira your comment above simply illuminates all the more the correctness of my position and, in these matters thus far at any rate, the wholesale incorrectness of your position in virtually ev…

ANOTHER DESTRUCTION OF A DISSENTER IN A DEBATE

If they don't erase it, you may find this debate in part in the Comments section below the video: BEST CAPOEIRA BRAZIL.

Witness the malicia as taught to us by Anansi...



Witness the intellectual acumen and foresight as taught by Orunmila...


...and Obatala...
witness the serenity of character and flowing interplay of this destruction that I hand out, in the way that I have learned from studying the unfathomably wise and deep Olokun...


...and his wise, brilliant, deadly daughter Yemoja, Mother of Gods...
witness as I hunt down and slay my prey with the unfailing skill and accuracy that I gleaned from being a dutiful son to Oxosi the Hunter...
Here I am, wholly disintegrating and destroying another person whom I was...up until he revealed his true colors...truly enjoying the pace and vigor of what might have been a distinguished, rigorous, intelligent, honest debate and discussion.

Without further ado, here is the latest debate. Your thoughts...pro, con, or indifferent...are solicited…

I only recently became aware of theroot.com and follow them of Facebook. I find many of their articles to be quite informative. I lifted this article wholesale from their page, it is not mine in any way...although it will feature in my subsequent discussions as I recently had a interesting spontaneous discussion-cum-debate-cum-discussion on this very subject [ it was under way when I happened on them, Idk how it started ] with a group of strangers spanning the range of racial gender and social classes.

WEAPONIZE YOUR STANCES: HOW TO USE YOUR STANCES TO DESTROY ANYONE

Image
One of the most multifaceted, one of the most devastating , one of the most difficult to stop, and one least understood weapons of the self defense systems...regardless of the style, expertise, etc of the opponent... is the proper use of STANCES, POSTURES AND STANCE TRANSITIONS as genuine weapons for self defense. We Montu [ Afrikan self defense systems ] practitioners use these stances not only for self defense but for health, meditation, spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual stimulation and even sexual posture purposes...that's why SMAI TAWI is a seamless part of all of our combat, health, and spiritual systems. [ More on SMAI TAWI later ].

 We of my family's art, NJIA UHURU KIPURA [ "The Way of Freedom" ]...call them by one of the many more ancient, more correct Afrikan language terms [ in this case, we in my family are using the language of Swahili ]: MISIMAMO, MKAO NA MISIMAMO MPITO, which means STANCES, POSTURES AND STANCE TRANSITIONS.

Many arts like sila…
