The capoeira aú movement is essentially a cartwheel. However, it has some differences from a cartwheel performed in gymnastics. First, in capoeira, a person must be able to see their opponent at all times. So instead of looking at the ground, a capoeirista must look forward or at his/her opponent while doing au. Another visible difference is the bent legs during a capoeira au.
