Translates as 'sideways dodge' in Portuguese.

Move Background

This is a capoeira dodge movement that involves turning the body to the side by laying the bust on the legs, while protecting the face.

Step by step guide

  • Keep the feet in a parallel position and lower the torso. Have the hand closest to the opponent protecting the face and keep the other hand firm in preparation to change movements.
  • The other arm remains behind the body with the palm facing the floor and the legs should be bent in the same way as in cadeira.
  • The esquiva de lado is also the starting point for doing the queixada.
