Rasteira em Pé which translates as 'standing creeper.'

Move Background

It’s an escape with hooking the opponent’s front leg. While the rasteira do chão is used more for circular attacks, the rasteira em pé is more suitable for quicker or direct attacks such as the martelo or in faster games.

Step by step guide

  • The capoeirista does not crouch as low when hooking his foot around the supporting leg of the other kicker with the power coming more from the step vs the torso.
  • This version of the rasteira allows for a much faster execution.
