what about doing a spinning back kick? Sure you turn your back on your opponent but its a very powerful kick that is you land it, the attacker will be badly hurt.

Competition wise same thing, a spinngin back kikc can break the ribs and knock you out of the competition.




Yes and your leg can also be caught and now you're vulnerable in 2 ways, standing on one foot trying to keep your balance with your back to the attacker. A round kick can break a rib just as nicely as a back kick can. Don't get me wrong, I like the spinning back kick and it is a very powerful kick, but on the street, Uh uh. The ONLY sceneario I can envision a back kick is if the attack is originating from behind me and it would be a plain old back kick, no spinning!

Nothing fancy just stick to the basics. Even in MMA fights the basics are what win most fights.

I've used spining backkicks in the street with great effect. It all depends!!!

Ok lets change topics a bit, I have seen one steps both from many TKD schools, showing black belts doing natobans(sp?) and jumping spinning hook kicks in one steps.

1) Who here would attempt a natoban or a jumping spinning hook kick in a SD situation?

2) Give a reason why you would or wouldn't.

3) PLz keep it civil :P




Any technique has a time and a place! Whether or not a technique is effective or not depends on how well it is executed and the timing and distancing as well as! It all depends.

Check this out ...

Flying Leg Sissor

Many years ago (in the 80's) this takedown (the flying leg sissor) was practiced often at my instructor's school. We used to spar with it and utilizing it. This day and age most would say that it could NEVER be pulled off! But yet, Here we have it on video, in a major mma event, all against a top fighter! Hmmmmm
