Turns out that this venerable and deadly martial art was disguised as a cultural activity during periods of occupation in the Philipines, so this phenomenum is not restricted to the aphro diasporic martial arts like Capoeira etc I wonder what other styles went through this process in the past? I guess the main difference is that Capoeira retained it's dance format far after it was legalized in part because of the value placed on it for the tourist trade in Brazil.
