One of the advantages of a blog is I can now post animations and similar stuff that I could not place in the book.
Here is a nice gif of someone performing the Capoeira movement “Ginga”. If he had a partner they would literally be dancing circles around each other.
A few posts ago I discussed how a possible counter to the low knife attack Styers and Cassidy show would be to remove the targeted leg out of reach and then bring it back in a snap kick. Ginga is the method I would personally use for this. As soon as my rear foot touches the ground I am used to bringing it back into a kick very rapidly.
Some more novel applications of Ginga are included in the book.If you have enjoyed this article or it has been helpful to you please feel free to show your appreciation. Thank you.
