Move Background

Rasteira is a simple capoeira stroke that consists of resting your hands on the ground and rotating your leg at a 180º angle until it snaps behind the opponent's foot and then drags you towards the goal of knocking down your opponent.

Step by step guide

  • Sometimes in a close game when using the leg requires too much time and energy, this is used instead.
  • While going along with the motion of the kick, the capoeirista ducks under the kick, grabs the supporting leg, and pulls it leg with his/her hand towards him/her in the same direction as a rasteira using the instep.
