One of my (many) pet peeves: Spinning Back Kick vs. Spinning Side Kick

I am going to take a bit of pause from my recent rants and do a little technical article. One my martial arts pet peeves is the difference between a spinning back kick and spinning side kick. I feel that many practitioners these days don’t know the difference. In fact, I feel the spinning back kick is actually starting to be lost in lieu of the spinning side kick. Check out this video for my explanation of the difference between the two.

Spinning Back Kick vs. Spinning Side Kick

As I’ve written in previous articles, if we are not vigilant about preserving techniques, they will get lost. This is one such instance that I feel is on the brink of extinction.
