This is an aú variation where a practitioner does a handstand, followed by a twist with the hips and a split.

Step by step guide

  • From esquiva (defensive move) , the free arm reaches in an arc over the head in the direction of motion.
  • The leg extended furthest from the body leaves the ground first, kicking off and providing momentum.
  • Then the reaching hand is placed on the far side of the body.
  • Bending the arms at the elbows supports weight as both legs pass over the body fully extended.
  • While inverted, the body should be opened and entirely extended. One foot touches the ground then the other.
  • The arms must be lifted for protection as soon as they are no longer supporting weight.
