Move Background

Banda is a sweep kick, the objective of which is to pull one of the opponent’s feet making him lose his balance and fall. It usually is performed from a standing position. What separates the Banda from the Rasteira is that the sweep is mostly done with the heel of the foot instead of the instep.

Step by step guide

  • A defensive counter-attack performed against a kick.
  • This is usually reserved for circular kicks such as the armada or queixada.
  • By following the motion of the kick, the capoeirista steps to the outside of the kicker and uses one hand to push them forward while the closest leg reaps the supporting leg of the kicker.
