Hey guys. I'm a new poster here although I have viewed these forums plenty of times. First off, I have been doing BJJ for a little over a year and received my blue belt from Royce Gracie about 3 weeks ago. Damn, I'm still stoked. Anyway, here's the deal. My buddy wants to join a martial art and has been deciding between Akido and Capoeira. Of course I told him to join BJJ with me at my school, and I would be able to give him a head start before he would even join. His response was: "I'm not big or strong enough for grappling." Of course I proceeded to tell him about the history of BJJ with Helio and Royce's domination of the first 4 UFC's. It fell on deaf ears because he has joined a Capoeira school tonight and his reason according to him was that "it looked cool". I was pissed to say the least because he wouldn't take my advice, and also because, well, he is taking Capoeira. Am I missing something here? Is Capoeira legit? Should I let him waste $60 a month for a couple months and then proceed to choke his break-dancing ass out to show him what's up? I'm sure this will be sent to the Wasteland in a few minutes. By the way, I like to have a few beers after BJJ and the get on the computer and ramble on and on.
