Background of Queda de rim

This can be either an evasive movement, or a kick done from this position.

Description of Queda de rim

Beginning like a headstand, the practitioner crouches. Turns both knees so that they face the right elbow. Shifts the weight over the left hand, then lower the head. The capoeirista lowers his left hip on his left elbow and lets the left side of the head touch the ground, raises his legs and puts the right knee at the right elbow to a rest. Both legs are now drawn up and ready to kick.

One can enter the Queda de rim from Negativa or just jumping.
