Kyukishin Spining Kick Question
Im watching some youtube highlights of Kyokushin here
and I noticed that they use a spinning kick over and over again. It seems pretty impressive and is landing. It starts as a spinning back kick, like in TKD but instead of jumping up, they fall down on their back while spinning and keeping the leg up. I saw a few knockouts from it and stoppages.
Anyone use it or can comment on its effectiveness? I dont do Kyokushin but it seems like they go tot he ground on purpose after the kick, not as a mistake or accident.
I think that's just a spinning heel kick. When you throw it high at someone taller than you and they block it you often fall down.
I think its a Russian Kyokushin speciality to drop with the kick. Its a sports technique.
I thought if you got knocked down too many times in Kyokushin you lost the fight? Or does deliberate falling over not count?
WTF TKD wannabes!
They don't know the jumping spin hook, they just want to steal it!
But anyways... you see it alot to in WTF. Jumping spin hooks and landing on the ground after so your opponent can't counter attack.
Course, if it lands... night night..
Ok cool. So they are doing it on purpose. I realy wasnt sure. I read that thread and I agree there should be penalties for falling on purpose like that. It is a cool technique though if landed.
Who wants to be WTF TKD

Back turning kick, not back roundhouse kick.
