Looks similar to Capoeira. Any ideas if it is related?

Hi Matt,

I just ran across this and I have no idea, except it's quite possible both arts were from African origins.

But note some similiarties to
Fujian Dog Boxing - 1986 China Nationals

I continue to be astounded to see what my searches uncover.
