    I remember that. It even made it's way into the Tekken video game as a move for Paul Phoenix...

    His recovery was pretty smooth, but wow that kick was in a different time zone. I am a bit surprised his opponent didn't clock him though his hands were really low even on the recover. I never realized that Fred Simmons did MMA.

    This is how I practiced it. You have to have a good spinning heel kick first then you put a crash mat sorta off to the the side of your pad holder and go for broke. The kick itself is actually easier than it looks IMO. Landing it on a someone other than a pad holder not so easy. lol

    Badass but probably a better technique to try in striking only competitions.

    Isn't that a rolling axe kick, not a wheel kick?

    The timing of kick and power will make the difference and this video is somehow related to such things.
