God you're confused, aren't you.

What is your experience level? (I'm only asking so I can judge the way to answer)

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a tornado kick? Is it a spinning kick?
If so then my answer is also no.
Applegm, don't be put off posting because people seem blunt, they are lovely really, it's just that a lot of people have very strong views, it is nothing personal and I have learnt quite a bit in the short time I have posted on these boards.

Applegm

I asked for your experience level in my earlier post so that I could answer you in the right way. You haven't done so, (Thats OK, you don't have to) I just thought it might help me with a response.

In the absence of that information you have now submitted another post that would appear to justify a tornado kick in combat by stating that a character in star wars used it and it's very advanced.

I'm not in as good a mood as I was yesterday morning, so:

1. No a tornado kick is not any use in combat. You'd get stuffed half way through it.
2. If you look at anything in something like star wars to justify combat techniques you must be severely retarded.
3. I refuse to believe anyone on this forum is that stupid to put such an inane comment on any subject. Is your IQ above 10?

Hey UKFIGHTFREAK

I gave applegm a chance didn't I. I was nice yesterday!
