The name looks hard to say so it's gotta be hard to learn right? What are the basics and how can I learn how to do it?

First, go to capoeira.com, planetcapoeira.com, brazilca.com, and the other threads here and read about it.

Then, look for a school! There are capoeira schools and studios in every major city at this point. (And I know it's true, since there's even three in Cleveland)

If you want, I can post a link to the database for capoeira schools, listed by region.

Sorry man but 'Only the Strong' is a godaweful movie, with a plot like crocadile dundee, martial arts scenes like the sound of music, and staring a kung foo practitioner who knows (and you can quote me) Jack Shit about Capoeira.

If the links I posted above aren't enough, then watch Van Damn's "The Quest". It has an actual Capoeira Mestre in one part, and he really kicks butt.
