    At my old kung fu school they called them "twisting kicks".

    We used to do these in Soo Bahk Do, our Grandmaster was especially good at this kick:





    Hip flexibility is crucial. I was always taught to rotate the hip outward so that your upper body turns inward as a result. Other than that I don't know what to tell you, it's been a while since I've practiced these.

    Also, be careful with the knee of your non-kicking leg. The twisting motion leaves the joint exposed to injury and such.

    Is this a requirement? I mean, there are so many things to go wrong with the knee and the foot at that angle- jam the toes, hurt the knee, etc. I mean, if you could sub something that's difficult, but less injury prone- let's say a jump splits kick. I don't mean that they are any more practical, but it seems safer, and I imagine this is for a test, right.
