The Chicken/ Cockerel

A few years ago when i started training Capoeira my Kung Fu teacher jokingly refered to it as "yellow chicken dancing" as opposed to his own martial arts style "Yellow Dragon Fist" but he never said i shoudn't practise ! It also actually made me think of how cockerals fight... Lately a friend of mine has be training Brazillian Ju Jitsu with the Gracie school at the Tokei Martial arts centre in London bridge which has a cockeral as its motif. I have been syncing quite a few "chickens" and "cockerels" lately and recently an online friend posted on the cockerels connection to the orisha "shango" i have also noticed a sexual symbolism. Currently my sons favourite clip is the brazillan nursery ryme "meu pintinho amarelinho" about a little yellow chick.
