Move Background

An attack to the eyes that reveals the street fighting origins of capoeira. It is rarely executed in rodas today because of the harm it can cause.

Step by step guide

  • It is an eye-poke with the index and middle finger of the attacking hand.
  • This attack was usually done to disorientate the target for a quick escape or in some cases, rob them.
  • In most capoeira rodas, the Dedeira will be shown, but never fully executed.
  • When combined with the element of surprise, the dedeira was a very useful ambush weapon.
