I wanted to tell about Capoeira some more so I'm makingthis thread for that purpose.
Capoeira comes from two African Tupi words Kaa-poera (sp), that means- a scorch forest that is clearing. For those who don't know, that means renewal and transformation. After a forest is burned by whatever means and is left grow, all the seeds from the various trees and plants are spread and buried by the wind. Over time, naturally , a new forest develop as as the varied life within is no longer situated within the same spot. Trails are changed and new routes are taken as a result.
This change is comparable to the human body and soul as we continuously develop ourselves. That was the purpose. I give my source later, but the philosophy belonging to capoeira is the same as other cultures and traditions from many people such as the golden race in China.
The similarities exsist and are even expressed the same way. The Chinese concept of the Dao is the Way. The primordial aspect, start of all varied life which continuously evolve and become better or more, through it. The African Roda, is a circle as Totality, continuous movement and growth. This movement in China is the yin/yang. This movement in Capoeira is most famously known as the Ginga. The Ginga- two complementary lunges swayed to the left in right. I encourage those who practice to do it slow and dip more to develope jing as I when I did this.
Jing is the product that life is developed from, which "is" the frequeny, it make-up . Jing is the child, the creative life and power. And in Capoeira, that spontaneous action, the movement, remains unchecked and left to flow . The ideal is to not move against the tide, but to open up the channels within yourself to allow these tides to flow- you see what I mean. Capoeira is cultivating that spontaneous flow of life we all are apart. Which, as a result, improves the individual. The last of this is the:

Corpo fechado, or closed body. But, their wrong in this blog. It's simply unity and being in connect, being fully aware and able in every moment. Kinda like Shou Yi, retaining the light and allowing the energy flow. This is a primal goal in every external art. To naturally flow and be according to your own nature. To allow no hindrance or barrier to prevent this life from being embrace. The axe, as he in Yoruba tradition.
Continual development as a result.
WELCOME TO CAPOEIRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
