    Roberto Tapia: Hi, My name is Roberto Tapia from Capoeira Sul da Bahia, Monitor Bucho. Today, I am going to show you how to play Capoeira. Now I am going to tell you how to do Queixada and how to do a Esquiva Media Alta in Capoeira.

    First start with the Ginga, stop, turn your body. Make sure to protect yourself with this defense and bend it a little bit your body. Make sure your back is straight. Right later one, two and kick. Later Ginga. Stop, one two kick. Now we are going to do at a normal speed and two.

    One more time. One two three Ginga, stop, one keep looking at your partner when you do the movement, two, three. One more time Ginga and Ginga. That's how to do a Queixada.

    Now I am going to show you how to do the Capoeira defense that's called Esquiva Media Alta. First stop in the Ginga, forward your leg and defense. Make sure to open the most of you can and bend here to balance and keep looking at your partner. That's called the Esquiva Media Alta.

    Then you go back Ginga, stop, base, we call it base when our legs are in the same line, getting down a little bit, bend at your knees and keep looking. That's called Esquiva Media Alta.

    Now full speed. In other angle it kind of looks like this. We are here with Emma Goldberg from Capoeira Sul da Bahia. We are going to show you how to do Queixada and also Esquiva Media Alta.

    In this exercise we are going to do crossing Ginga. So we start with the crossing Ginga and I am going to start the kick with Queixada. Other side. So that's how you do Esquiva Media Alta and Queixada.
