In this lesson you will learn how to do an L-Kick. The L-kick is a movement originating from capoeira and often seen in breakdancing and contemporary dance forms. In Portuguese this is called "Au Batido". You basically start like if you were doing a cartwheel but then stop your hips and let your legs go a little further. Ideally one leg would point straight up and the other leg would move close to your head. Before you try the capoeira L-Kick, you should be able to hold your handstand for at least 5 seconds.
