[AfricanWarriorTradition] Capoeira weaponry




 
"With respect to weapons, the Capoeirista of old used knives, sticks, machetes, razor blades, and even the berimbau which (in times of necessity) became even more potent when a special spear like attachment was affixed to its tip with a ring. Each capoeirista was said to carry two knives-one made of wood the other steel."

-Edward Powe, Black Martial Arts VII: The ABC & "Bay-ah-Bah" of Capoeira de Angola
