(Then, here's the Wind Up-percut)
(Also, I forgot the "Ranger Roll" video link in my email)
I’ve seen Billy Blanks use that kick to good effect against Tokey Hill way back in 1980!
He should do a breakdown/Tutorial of this kick.
By the way, we used to call it The Cartwheel Kick
Well if Tekken used it, it must be effective.
From the videos, it looks like the floppity kick is like anything–if it’s not executed well, with the right timing, distance, and strategy, it will fail. Alvarez was all about showmanship–wrong distance, no strategy to get the opponent in a position so it would land. The karate video shows a completely different level of execution among the competitors. That said, having some good jiu jitsu skills just in case is a very good idea!
So many times it looks like the recipient has all the time in the world to avoid the foot-to-the-face.
I notice Alvarez theows it within seconds of the bell in case it doesn’t work out.
Powerful move – devastating
I’ll never understand why punches to the face are against the rules, while a spinning heel kick to the face is perfectly legal?!?!
Do mawashi kaiten geri – side rolling roundouse

I believe this is very similar to what used to be called the axe kick about 50 years ago.
But no, maybe a spinning heal kick?
I really like the commit you made on how you end up if you miss hitting solid and that you most likely will. Plus, if you hit the hard part of the head your heal will be giving you some extreme pain as you limp away.
Jumping jolly ranchers
Looks like one of those high-risk, high-gain techniques, that may work better in the dojo than on the street, where flinging yourself to the ground runs the risk of causing you some injury. In any event, I’m not athletic enough to pull this move off, and even if I had the degree of athleticism required, probably wouldn’t want to try it in a serious confrontation.
I was doing MMA up till 3 years ago but started when we were called Shootfighters. All kicks became round kicks. I think all styles of kicking from Karate in multiple platforms to Silat and it’s multiple platforms and blah blah should be included in striking. I’m a Boran striker first but I study all kicking from everything I can now. Andy Hug had a axe kick from Hell. I’ve only seen that floppy kick with Eddie and I thought “wtf is he doing?” until watching the Kyokushin guys. I wouldn’t try it in MMA but those flashy kicks can work for those who train them ex cartwheel kick Saenchia. Brian Ebersol (ms) knocked a dude out with his round off version but I think got DQ’d bc the organization thought it was a fix. I think if you train for something no matter how radical you will eventually make it work another example Capoeira wheel kick done by a Vitor. It’s sad when someone’s career gets to its high points every time he takes performance enhancers. But how can you not like Vitor? I like him. Great video
Actually the Kick is called “Do Mawashi Kaiten Geri”, but many refer to it as the Roll Kick.
In Australia we have a Bad Ass Peter Graham who does the rolling thunder, which is similar, and there is the reverse of this, called the Tornado kick.
Look him up.
I think it’s written in the beginning of the clip: Mawashi kaiten geri, which should stand for ” circular roll kick” if I’m not too far from the translation.
All those fights are Mas Oyama’s Kyokushinkai Kan Karate which I took from 1968 till 1984 and we never, not once, did any spinning kicks whatsoever. Turning our back or leaving the ground would mean certain death, except for the traditional front flying kick where we would always land on our feet and not in some stupid forward or back stance. The idiot instructors who Incorporated those spinning techniques did so long after Oyama died. And I’ll bet you he is turning in his grave. We also never learned how to bob and weave and avoid or step back. You’ll notice our lack of maneuverability in this video. Thank goodness I also took 10 years of kickboxing. Another art I took for 4 years was Judo where most of the time you also remain on your feet. Jiu Jitsu is the only on your back art. And in the street, while you’re tying one guy up, his four buddies will be kicking your head in.
I would.like to see moments this isnt successful you have a high degree of exposure if you are not succesful
I’ve heard it referred to as a “rolling thunder kick” or “rolling axe kick” before
Putting that one in my toolbox.
It’s called a roller kick, rolling kick, or rolling thunder kick…pretty cool when it connects but pretty sketchy when it doesnt…
Nice move. Remember me of Capoeira moves.
I don’t know what it’s called, but that’s pretty slick. I’m too old for that stuff, but it looks pretty effective if you land it.
It’s called “ Rolling Thunder “
