A low side kick to the knee.

Move Background

This is a side kick to the lower areas including the thigh, knee, or instep. Impact is usually made with the heel or sole of the foot.

Step by step guide

  • As with the pisào, the chapa baixa begins with a forward knee raise.
  • However, instead of rising upwards towards the usual kicking targets capoeira (head, chest, stomach), the kick is driven downward towards the other player's lower extremities.
  • It incorporates the malacia in capoeira appearing as a high kick but ending in an unpredictable painful kick to the knee or thigh.
