Well, Jogo de cintura" means having the flexibility to face something, to get out of difficulties, and it’s a colloquial expression, it’s being malleable to adapt to various situations, especially those that are not very good, always maintaining respect, posture, and without offending susceptibilities.

I think it has a similar meaning to the slang ‘malemolência’, which is the attitude of being soft and flexible in front of challenges, instead of being hard and rigid.
