Tesoura de Frente – forward scissor takedown.

Move Background

A variation of the Tesoura (scissors) that targets the legs instead of the torso.

Step by step guide

  • The tesoura de Frente moves in low, hooking the outside leg with the calf of one leg while simultaneously using the knee of the other leg to trap to the opponent's inner thigh with the knee.
  • With a small amount of effort, the capoeirista rotates his torso away from his opponent using the trapped knee as a lever, knocking the opponent off balance.
  • This move requires a high level finesse and timing.
