A ninja bitch kick.

Here is a good rule of thumb. Hitting people with your foot/shin area is kicking.
Different styles, different names, pretty much the same kick. We basically call it a "snap/wheel" because you're combining a snap kick with a wheel kick. Great way to draw an opponents focus down as you plant a foot in the side of his head. I know it has TKD origins but I'm not sure where else it may have developed independently.
Wait, slow down, I can't keep up with all this high-brow technical stuff...:toothy3:

i dunno, i saw my mt instructor (eddie de nobrega) use it a lot. and it looked fucking serious!
It's been around a lot longer than that. It's been in our system since the late '60s and came from TKD. Prior to that, I don't have a clue. I suck at not biting on the feint.

BTW the armbars you use in Sambo are known as juji-gatame.
No, I refuse to let this **** go. Many systems did this kick ages before it was coined the Brazilian Kick. Call it a whipping roundhouse for all I care but I'll be damned if I'm going to let this thing be called a Brazilian Kick. They all ready have gayed up half the decent techniques up there like Omapolata, Gogopolata, Kimura, and Upa. And if you want to be technical the armars I know in sambo are extended armbars not juji-gatame. If I was doing Judo then I'd use the term. And yes I use adhesive bandage, cola, and hook and loop. So kiss my ass.
