It's time for a staple part of my blogs, the TOP 10 INTERNATIONAL FIGHT TIPS OF THE DAY.   Every day I take the Top 10 countries watching my YouTube Channel here:
look into the current crimes/attacks/issues and events of theirs that I can find online, and answer their questions as to how to use my Njia Uhuru Kipura techniques to help my friends in those countries. 

My friend living in Indonesia told me that robbery is pretty common. Robbers in Indonesia will rob foreign visitors/tourists/businesspeople: GERMAN FOREIGNERS ROBBED IN BALI


My friend [ who asked to remain anonymous ] practices Cardio Capoeira in Indonesia. She was confident that she was fit[ she IS FIT ], and capable of defending herself if need be.

Until a criminal robbed her.

She tried all of her cardio capoeira stuff that she learned in class. The same stuff her cardio capoeira Mestre swore is great to learn, and the same stuff that worked in their cardio capoeira rodas. But in real life, when she really had to fight against someone who didn't care about being nice in a "roda"? None of her cardio capoeira stuff worked.

The guy who robbed her? Attacked her from behind her left shoulder, grabbed her hair, and slung her to the ground. The shock of slamming into the concrete hurt my friend, but she caught enough of her balance to not totally slam her head into the ground. Her head kind of bounced/skimmed off the unforgiving concrete. She tried to "role" to her feet, but the robber crowded her, throwing punches that pushed her back down to her butt again.

She executed another role and for good measure performed a "Au". The robber kept charging her, punching in flurries, even as she did her Ginga. A glancing punch of his hit her across the top of her head, and he literally ran into her. Crashed into her. Full body contact, from head to toe. Like an American Football Offensive Lineman...trying to block a an American Football Defensive Lineman. This rushing push of his knocked her flying and staggering backwards a few steps, and made her fall down to the ground and on her butt again.

The criminal looked like the big guy pushing the little guy down. Unfortunately, my friend looked like the guy falling down in this picture:

From her position on the ground, she saw that the robber was at the perfect distance for her to try her CORTE CAPIM. This is the Cardio Capoeira CORTE CAPIM:

She put all of her above average speed and power into her Corte Capim. In the roda? Her Corte Capim knocked over many men bigger, heavier, stronger,faster, more agile, quicker,  and in better physical shape than her attacker was. She was sure that she would knock the robber down, too.

But the robber simply stepped closer to her by stepping over her Corte Capim, and punched her  face so hard, that he knocked her down on her side. Her lip began to bleed a lot, and her nose began to swell.

He grabbed her wallet and escaped.

Because of this experience of being robbed, my friend asked me to show her the real way to do the technique she incorrectly called "CORTA CAPIM" in a fight or Ayika...which Brasilieros miscall "roda".

The REAL technique is called KUKATA ZA NYASI [  Swhaili for "Cutting The Grass/Grass Sickle" ] and many other terms in our Afrikan languages, not "Corte Capim". Our art is older than Brasil AND Portugal, so of course the names for our self defense-spiritual-intellectual-etc art [ KIPURA, not "Capoeira"; most especially my NJIA UHURU KIPURA which I show below ] and our techniques are ALSO rooted in our Afrikan languages. Not the language of Brazil or Portugal.

This is the  KUKATA ZA NYASI RAHISI  [ "Cutting the Grass Easy/Easy Grass Sickle" ] that I teach beginners:

Notice my footwork taking me off angle from my opponent, the hand strikes the level changing, the unbalancing from my Nusu Fremu technique [ look at my other videos for the explanation for Nguvu and Nusu Fremu ] which...if they DON'T end the fight, which THEY USUALLY DO...forces the opponent to be swept off his feet by the KUKATA ZA NYASI and the following kick [ usually to the groin ] drops him or [ if kicking the flank of the leg we just swept ] forces our opponent to turn his/her back to us.

With their back or flank [ side ] to us, we can easily finish them with another technique, or escape, or even push them away.

The same day that I showed her this technique? My friend swept...really swept, no roda play...her sister's soccer [ football ] playing boyfriend. The same week? She swept her cousin...who trains in Silat.

I'm going to quickly share with you the important history about the art of my family, Njia Uhuru Kipura. 

Njia Ya Kupata Uhuru Kwa Kutumia Kipura..."The Way of Getting Freedom Using Kipura" the full real name of my family's art. But that's a lot to say. So we shorten it to "Njia Uhuru Kipura". Kipura's Way of Freedom or The Way of Freedom. As we all know, my family's Njia Uhuru Kipura is descended from the original Kipura of Kongo, the devastating war art that was probably created in BAMBA, the war capitol of Kongo.

This BAMBA OF KONGO is the same BAMBA that Capoeiristas in Brasil sing about in their oldest songs like EU SOU BAMBAREAD HERE TO SEE THE SONG EU SOU BAMBA

In these songs? These "Capoeiristas" acknowledge that they are actually Kipura warriors from the region of Bamba. They clearly say their teacher and their art is from Bamba, and proudly sing of this truth even today.

The Kipura of Kongo created every single legend of "Capoeira" in Brasil, as all of these warriors are actually warriors of Kipura. Not "Capoeira". The Portuguese term "Capoeira" is the result of the mispronounciation of the correct word "KIPURA/KIPULA" of the KiKongo language of Kongo. "

"Capoeira" was first used in public documents in Brasil during the year 1712, 207 years after Afrikans were already using Kipura to defeat Brazil, Portugal, the Dutch and occasionally the Spanish in wars in or near Brasil.

This same art and/or its cognates was used everywhere in the Americas that Afrikans traveled, including the USA...where it was also called Knocking and Kicking. The Afrikans in the USA called The Gullah and The Geechee used this cognate of Kipura to fight and win a 50-100 Year War, establishing their independence and freedom during American Slavery.

We can see the overarching impact of Kipura on both Jailhouse Rock and 52 Blocks, which themselves are hybrid portions of the more comprehensive and deadlier Kipura of Kongo.
