Capoeira Guy

This could be Graduado Popeye, an instructor in Capoeira in Cork (I never asked, but a leaflet handed to me has his name on it). He was able to jump up and forward, twist himself around mid-air and come down facing the way he had come! He was accompanied by other students of this Brazilian martial art and performed other manoeuvres. Impressive!
