Out of pure curiosity: I heard from a friend that Yaw-Yan fighters can use a scorpion kick technique in a clinch - does anyone have a pic / link of a demo or a good description on how this is done? If this should go to TMA/FMA forum I am not sure.

It's a completely ridicious thing that involves using flexiblity to kick someone on top of the head with the ball of your foot by swinging it around and down like a hammer
For anyone that even slightly thinks that that's a reasonable technique please borrow my gun and shoot yourself.

I think I've seen this lady perform that technique. I may be wrong.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I've seen a few times in UFC but it's very rarely used becuase there are easier options, showmanship in my opinion.

Did you watch the video? They're both "scorpion kicks". I know what the **** an axe kick looks like.

Oy, Chloe Bruce should not be confused with martial arts.
Actually Yaw Yan's scorpion kick is thrown like a spinning hook kick, not like Bruce's demos. Here's a knockout from it:
It is still a very unreliable technique.

Sorry about that. I couldn't get the second video through(yep, that's a scorpion kick)
And yes, I've seen it in UFC but it wasn't done like that, he just threw his foot and hit him with the heel.

Ok, that 2nd version definitely makes a little more sense. A little.
