The Esquiva in Capoeira

Since we don’t block in Capoeira, we use the Esquiva. The esquiva in a way is like ducking away from kick. So we have three esquivas. Usually the esquiva entrada, is basically telling me to take a step forward. We have esquiva lateral, which is like an esquiva to the side. And we have an esquiva baixa, which is lowering yourself in a ginga position to a lower position.
