    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.
    Are you talking about what this guy here does?

    That kick is nothing life anything in TKD.I don't know of anyone outside of Kyokushin who can do it.

    I wish I can properly explain it.He starts in a fighting stance and from there he turns his body around slightly and takes off.And usually lands his leg on someone.

    Yes he does go to the ground on purpose because his legs are in the air.He's just not able to bring them back to land on his feet.The slowmotion capture of the clip is a bit misleading.

    Anyone know a counter to that? I have been hit a few times with it. My first encounter, I simply thought the kick was a ushiro mawashi geri and stepped into it but the weight of the kick takes me down to the ground at the same time. Now I just step back...

    Umm... ducking/mae geri? Why need counter when stepping back seems to do so well?

    Nope, back roundhouse kick....

    Ushiro = Back

    Mawashi = Roundhouse

    Geri = Kick.

    thats lovely but the kick in question isnt a back roundhouse. roudhouse means it hits with the front of the foot doesnt it? (I dont know, i dont speak such barbarian pagan languages)

    That kind of reminds me of that rediculous front flip move Jadamba pulled on Buakaw

    Nah, it's just slang for a circular technique. A right hook would be a roundhouse punch.

    This is ushiro mawashi geri


    and this is the technique people are asking about, I think


    Don't know what it's called other than "wheel kick" or "rolling kick", but I could be wrong about those.

    I doubt if we'll be seeing that in the Octogan/Priide, any time soon.
