"A spinning flying kick is not a very precise strike, and you need momentum to launch that kind of strike, so its easy to counter with a kick while he gets up in the air.
I saw once a TKD - kickboxing fight, the TKD fighter tried a flying spinning hook kick and he got a strong front kick from the kickboxer, he hit the ground like a sand bag."
Means nothing.I have seen the other result where the jump spin hook kick connected and shattered the guys cheek bone, very nasty. It all depends upon the fighter. Lets not confuse fighting and self defense, NOT the same thing! Self defense you want it short sweet and effective. You can get a little flashy in an organized match, not reccomended of course, but it can be done! The actual name for the Tornado kick in TKD (kukki style) is "Narabum". When said fast (and usally is then people say it wrong) it sounds like "audobon".
