From the author:
"So this is what happens when : A- I play too much capoeira, and B- I watch the Legend of Korra. This is a sort of capoeira/LoK fusion. Watching the amazing animation sequences in LoK I couldn’t help but think how great it would be to see the same good animation applied to capoeira moves, to have a tribe of Brazilian-inspired capoeira wood benders or something. I’m well aware that wood bending is not part of the Avatar Universe, and might not fit the idea of it because wood is organic matter, this is just for fun (I seem to remember one old guy bending vines by controlling the water inside them in the first series, but not the wood itself)
I wish drawing a move meant I could do it in real life Xp As it is not that magic, I just used some photo reference ^^ She is not wearing a real capoeira outfit but again a mix between one and LoK costumes.”
That would be really amazing animation to see bending using Capoeira movesets hehe
Didn’t they use Capoeira in the Kataang dance scene from season three of ATLA?
