Aphro-diasporic martial dance/fight


Video: http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfMEFj5PHAg I have heard this called ladjia or lajya. this is from Martinique but its connection to Capoeira is pretty obvious. there is something similiar in Cuba thats called Mani but I havent seen any footage yet.

I read this as 'Aphrodisiac Martial Art' and thought 'wtf?!', but WOW! 1936! That is crazy. Their footwork was all kinds of strange.

Wow, that's amazing. It reminds me other kinds of fights and styles, but you're right about it's connection to Capoeira. Hope you understand my English. :)
