Basic Kicks

Here we’re going to run through the main 6 kicks used in Capoeira; Meia Lua De Frente, Queixada, Benção, Martelo, Armada and Meia Lua De Compasso, or in this case, the Angola version Rabo De Arraia. We’re going to talk you through the footwork for each kick, give you some tips for improving your technique and give you ways to practice them safely in whatever space you have available for training at home.

N.B. Sorry some of the spins are a bit sloppy, the rug in my living room is a bit slippy.
