We were practicing that kick last night, and our instructor told us exactly that.

No mixup. Just an observation.

No spinning, you throw a round house kick and then pull back the kick in the reverse direction. So I round house kick past you the pull back from knee to hit with bottom of my foot. So what would you call it? smile shocked

I've always heard that called a hook kick.

My mistake. I thought the kick was performed in a spinning manner. We used to do hook kicks in my TKD school. I would do a lead leg roundhouse and the without setting the kick down bring it back up and past his head hooking then let loose the roundhouse again. In this sequence the hook kick is really only a diversion kick between roundhouse kicks. Once again a great kick for sparring but not very good on the street.
It's been so long since I practiced the hook kick that I would probably pull a hamstring. HA!Ha!
It's interesting how many names there are for kicks depending on who's talking about it. Example:spinning heel kick to one organization is a reverse turning kick to another. The list goes on and on.

I suppose you can start with a roundhouse, then bring it back for a hook. Seems like a natural thing to do.
We usually just bring the leg out and hook back into the target.

I wish that I was fast enough with my hook kick to use it by it self. I was only able to use it sandwiched between roundhouse kicks.
I was able to use the hook kick in a spinning manner with some success. It was a powerful technique that I had a little trouble controlling.
Ah!!Yesteryear.All this talk about hook kicks and spinning kicks makes me look back at the old days when I was banging it out in the tournaments. Oh well, we live in the present.I enjoy the arts more now than I did when I was chasing trophies.

I'll bet you were really something back in those days.
It's good that you're back at it and learning a different style.
Our Tang-soo-do instructors speak very highly of Goju when we happen to be discussing different styles, and I certainly respect you for getting back into the arts. Most people in your situation do little more than talk about getting going again, and it's rare to hear of someone who's actually doing it.
Hats off to you, Mark.
