Ladja or agya..

Video: http://http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=3Jo3BU4M2jA  This is another manifestation of the Afro-diaspora  and is a cousin of Capoeira. This is practiced in Martinique. There are others like it around the world  like in the southern U.S where there is something called the Catman and/or Knocking and Kicking and also Mani in Cuba.

There doesn't seem to be so much upside-downess to this variation of Capoeira and they're actually looking to take each other down. I'm learning so much from these vids! (Not that I might be able to recall all the names...haha!)

You can definitely see the Capoeira influence. Interesting.
