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

Work on loosening up the hips with reverse crescent 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.

The Question

I'd also like to point out that this kick is almost completely worthless. It generates very little power, and is not very quickly executed. It's only advantage is that it is sometimes unexpected. Still, most people can eat that kick and then proceed to break your face with a real kick.

One more thing. If you have to learn this for a test, or something, do it. Otherwise, it's not worth spending lots of effort on. It's just not that good a technique.

Actually, that kick can be executed very quickly as the motion is almost exactly like a front snap kick. And its advantage is misdirection. It comes at an odd angle from the "wrong" side.

Remember, rotation of the leg is always in the hips, rather than the knee. That is, you rotate the foot outward by rotating the entire leg outward from the hip- the knee and the toes always point the same direction.

You need 'Korean' hips to execute this kick comfortably ;)
