Pronounced “Ben-sao” and means blessing.

Move Background

The kick is performed from either the base position or the parallel position and uses the heel to push the target away. This differs from other kicks (like martelo) which are meant to deal damage. Instead, Benção functions to give you space and can set up your opponent for another attack or takedown.

Step by step guide

  • It is a straight forward frontal push kick.
  • It is commonly aimed at the abdominal or chest area, and the capoeirista hits with either the whole sole of the foot or with the heel.
  • The level of impact varies with its range and intent from a soft tap to an inward jumping stomp to the head, or torso.
