    I like jump spinning hook kicks, unfortunately I'm only good at them from a south paw stance :-(

    That shouldn't be a problem if you have good footwork and set the kick up right. I usually only threw my SBK out of southpaw stance, but would throw my power round out of orthodox stance. It's all about timing, set-up, and combination, things that are not often taught at your average dojang unless you have a team that competes at a regional or national level.

    I also like the twist kick but my favorite and most often used is a sidekick to the guts

    Low wheel to the thigh. Andy Hug is my hero.

    Sometimes I'll step back with my left foot while throwing a right (now lead) punch and then jump into it while their attacking, or lead off with a rear right roundhouse kick first then go into it. I'm amazed with the people who seem to be able to (more or less) fire kicks off like that equaly from both sides.

    That's quite a list of favorites.

    I've always been a kicker, even prior to studying martial arts, so, I love kicks. :D It's amazing that I never flocked to a kicking art like Tae Kwon Do since they have kicks galore!

    In a self-defense situation I'd probably call upon 5 of the 7 kicks I listed. I wouldn't use the hurricane kick and the spinning back kick unless I was pretty certain I could pull it off.

    Back kick doesn't spin. Sorry my nitpick vibe is going critical. If anything it is a linear kick.

    Spinning back kick.

    I don't care how viby your nitpick is.

    "Back kick" by itself is an idiot's attempt to draw distinctions between side kicks done right and side kicks done suck.

    I think i'll go with the back hook. Even in taekwondo sparring most people I sparred don't expect them. Not that I was sparring super high level people, but it worked for me
