Jogada is another standing banda, somewhat similar to Dourada. It was used in capoeiragem and in other leg-wrestling games.
Lock your right leg against opponent's right leg from the front: your right foot on the inside and your right knee on the outside of his leg. You are positioned more behind the opponent.
Then use Seduction1 to generate an outward wave from your pelvis down to the foot; pushing opponent's leg with the outside of your leg. This is a high-energy point("Haaa!")
This will create a nerve strangle and it force the opponent to fall forward. You must shift your weight onto your right foot as you do this.
Note that the principle of the takedown in Jogada is the nerve strangle; which is applied using the vocalization. The leg wave takes the opponent down, but he must first be weakened by the nerve strangle.
Do not forget to stomp on his lower back after you take him down; you can also fall on him elbow first. See Banda de frente for details.
Angle of entry-wise, Jogada is similar to Banda de costa; however, it is much easier to apply, as it does not need to enter under opponent's arm or to push his chest. Thus Jogada is more practical for fighting.
Jogada is described by Burlamaqui(1928); it is also refered to by sources on Pernada, another leg-wrestling game.
Jogada can also be done from the rear, using the same technique, taking the opponent down on his back; see the picture. The capoeira on the left is applying a Jogada from the rear.
