    It is not that hard to do the kick, back in GER we did that one every now and then because the hardest part is the coordination of rotation and kicking at the right time.
    Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

    At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

    Schools I trained at:
    Lotus Club Cetepe Liberdade Sao Paulo
    Renzo Gracie NYC
    New York Combat Sambo

    Isn't that what happens when you jump off a swing and your buddy forgets to move out of the way?

    err...

    seriously though, what's a swing kick? I did nothing but kick for 10 years of my life and I've never heard of it.

    The footwork/entry is sort-of like doing a spinning back kick, but the foot comes swinging up off the floor, instead of thrusting out, and connects with the heel or sole. It doesn't go in a wide arc like a wheel kick though.

    You have to be pretty flexible to do it, and it's not what I would call high %, but it has some niche uses in pure stand-up, which is more than I can say for crescent kick and he named crescent kick.

    It was something some sport karate guys used and showed me ~2000. I assumed it was a tkd move; I guess not?

    Do you lift the knee and chamber the kick before extending it while spinning, similar to say a back turning side kick that you drag across the target as you spin rather than thrusting into the target?

    Nah, that's a totally different kick in the video than what I'm taking about. That kick I've heard referred to as a reverse roundhouse. I don't know if these are proper names, they're outside my system and just what I heard people call them. (That name makes more sense for the kick though, there's nothing swingy about it.)

    You don't drag it across. The motion of the kick is curved but the impact is a solid smack into the target. You don't lift the knee at all except while riding the momentum of the kick. I'm not saying there is no chamber, but that your leg is pre-chambered by your footwork/entry/stance that sets up the kick.

    Visually it's sort-of like how flexible people might uchi mata, with a really high backwards kick behind them as they throw that drives a bunch extra slam into it. Imagine doing something that looked like that, hitting a person behind you, the leg swinging up almost behind him and smacking him in the face or the back of the head with your heel. That sums it up visually, but doing it is not just like doing an uchi mata, because (just like a roundhouse) you don't just swing the leg/body; you want the the lower leg to snap too. It's usually (always?) used as a counter.

    It's not exactly high percentage, you have to be flexible to make it a hard hit or you'll do a weak swing, and if you miss it you're in terrible positioning (so I'm not saying everyone should rush to go learn and use this kick in important situations with stuff riding on it), but the the technique does exist and you can hit people hard with it. It was my token flashy move for awhile (when your style is plain you have to have one).
