I wouldn't really want to try a jumping spinning hook kick in competition or in a street fight. as soon as you jump you open yourself up to counterattack. If you catch your opponent off guard or off balance, then it might be worth a try.




I find that a jump spinning hook kick works wonders in continuous sparring competitions especially against aggressive opponents who like to close you down. If you are hemmed in, duck down a plant a leading jab into his mid-section, (Just above his belt), as this arrests his forward motion slightly. Then jump up and slightly backwards and connect with a spinning hook kick to his head. I find that the attacker is now a little more cautious, which is nice.

If that's the case, then don't worry, it's not a problem.

Train as hard and as honest as you can.
(Honest training, involves honestly analysing the effectiveness FOR YOU - AT THIS MOMENT (for your height, weight, reach, current level of ability etc), for any given technique). Train at least 3 times a week and with full physical and emotional intent.

Training in this way, will ingrain these techniques into your psyche. You should work towards the sensation that when your hands or feet decide its time to hit, it hits.

Teach your body to a high degree and then let it decide what to do.

Reading this, I must admit it may sound a little sh*t and esoteric, but trust me, this is good stuff.

It's not a good idea to turn your to do jumping spinning kicks in a self defense or street fight situation. For one turning your back on an assailant makes you blind to his attack. Two, jumping in the air even for a slight bit puts you in a highly vulnerable position. Three, the difficulty of the kick done under stress makes it even more difficult than if say you were to do it in a competitive sparring match. This is why sticking to basics is prefered. Five, the combination of any of variables done together in a technique for self defense can only lower your chances of being successful. That being said, the chances of applying and successfully connecting with a technique is already slim, why add to the possibility of lowering your chances of survival with a technique such as the jumping spinning back kick.

I would doubt its effectiveness in a street situation, especially given that you are having difficulty doing it.

As far as doing any kick or flying kick, it is a matter of breaking it down to its parts. First, you must increase your flexibility. Then work the kick itself, from a standing position. You should also work the jump, without the kick. Then work on putting it all together, under the guidance of watchful & helpful eyes, eventually aided by your friends, the mirror & target pads.
