"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".

Here's a nice one (at about 58 seconds into the vid). This is an ITF match (Chang Hon style TKD). I believe they call it a 560 jump turning kick. I'm sure that ITFunity will confirm or correct the name.

Well in our studio we just refer to it as a 360 flying crescent kick. we arent a creative bunch i guess, but the message is easily conveyed. when i was taught a staff form in the beginner class we used a 180 version. we usually dont do those sort of moves until you get into our White Crance of Wu Mei forms which are incredibly beautiful, and difficult. i did some research and found this from my studio about the particular form i am thinking of. "set from White Crane of S. Shaolin Li Hua Ch'uan of Wu Mei origin"

watching it performed is fascinating with traditional crane hands and an explosive ending where the last 25 moves of the form are some kind of jumping/kicking. they always put the hardest stuff at the end....

unfortunately for you i cant really help you learn them, they are really hard, but once you get the hang of it, like everything else, seems to come with time and practice. best advice is to use your core and whip your head around to look at the opponent, the body will follow the head.
