Capoeira is an activity that is relatively easy to pick up but is actually very difficult to master. Meia Lua de Frente (trans – front half moon) was the first kick I was taught on my Capoeira journey and really takes that idea and runs with it.

Capoeira Basics: Meia Lua de Frente

Capoeira is a game about call and response and this particular kick is generally used as a call. I would guess that this is firstly because, as a call, you are in a good position after completion to respond to the opponent’s response and secondly, as a response, it is not generally a very effective movement.
