#ATACXGYMCAPOEIRA OAKLAND ANGOLEIRO RODA: STREET WARRIOR VS STREET WARRIOR

















The purpose of this Angoleiro roda drill hosted by Mestre Themba and his students in Oakland California was to remove your partner from the circle/roda by using minimal striking, primarily posture, movement, and cutting off your opponent's ability to escape/evade/maneuver, then pushing/sweeping/takedowns/throws or striking. Using Udanganyifu [ miscalled by the Brazilian Portuguese term "malicia" ] is required.

Both feet and all parts of the body had to remain in the circle...with emphasis being on the hands and feet. After dealing with the slick technical skills of my younger brother in the White hoodie, SENSEI THOMAS OF THE WAY OF SIMPLICITY [ which we both learned from our primary teacher and Senior Lead Instructor of the Family Arts, Uncle Bobby ], I managed to get him to step with one foot out of the circle. It was fun and the way Mestre Themba's Angoleiros practice this skill drill is unique amongst most who trace their lineage to "Capoeira Brasiliero" and/or the tradition of "Angoleiros".

Mestre Themba, CM Achebe Thomas, Brother Mo, and all the other amazing bruthas part of Mestre Themba's class have my eternal friendship and gratitude. See y'all again, next year!!

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"...is 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. http://bit.ly/2fjGNv1

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. 

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. https://streetsmartbrazil.com/when-capoeira-would-land-you-prison/

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. https://books.google.com/books?id=HNYwa1VeLIIC&pg=PA89&lpg=PA89&dq=gullah+knocking+and+kicking&source=bl&ots=aFiCOY6DJm&sig=AmJRqf61qIdD-yB6MSPxYoSuDdk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwirks3Ju7TWAhUHxlQKHakkCrMQ6AEIVjAH#v=onepage&q=gullah%20knocking%20and%20kicking&f=false

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. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jailhouse_rock_(fighting_style)
