fighters generation

character that uses kung fu...during the kick your body almost reverses and the front leg becomes vertical hitting with the heel. Anyone know what the kick is called or the style it is from?



while im on the topic, what is the general style based on stances and moves?

Its a high side kick. Based lossely on Wing Chun, though high kicks arent used in that system. Mainly, its just streetfighter and Ryu would kick his ass.

Hello,

Further to what Chen said, the best art I have ever seen for the high side kick was Tae Kwon Do.

Re the overall style, I am at a loss. Those kicks are all found in Tae Kwon do though:

Jump Front kick:

True, his kicks are very TKD, however, if you look at his stance and hand placement, very WC. When will Video games get it right?
