Short Wave | African Combat Sciences with Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon || Ep.003

Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon and Abibifahodie Asako ‘Afrikan Liberation Capoeira’ specialize in the re-africanization of Capoeira, a combat science that was developed in Angola but has since been divorced from this source, taking on a new portuguese identity. On this episode of Short Wave, we spend time with Dr. Ọbádélé Kambon, a Research Fellow at the Institute of African Studies (IAS), University of Ghana who spends his time teach the science of Capoeira, both as a potent form of self-defense and a fitness activity. He shares with us the history of African Combat sciences across the continent and how they are prioritize motion and rhythm in engineering moves and stances to defeat enemies. We also learn about the reception of Capoeira in Ghana today and how he and Abibifahodie Asako ‘Afrikan Liberation Capoeira are encouraging the practice of the science especially among young kids.
