Reverse side kick.

Move Background

Sometimes confused with Meia Lua Solta because they kind of look the same, but the difference is that Chapa Giratoria has the kicking leg bent, then pushes out during the follow through. Meia Lua Solta just keeps the leg straight all the way.

Step by step guide

  • The capoeirista steps forward or diagonally while turning their torso.
  • At the same time they raise their back leg up, unleashing it at the apex of the turn in a straight path.
