    Elbows are not kicks, retard. A hopping front kick is not a fly kick either. That's a jump kick.

    A flying kick is a type of kick in certain martial arts and in martial-arts based gymnastics, with the particularity that the kick is delivered while in the air, specifically moving ("flying") into the opponent after a start to gain forward momentum.

    So turns out it is a flying kick i literally googled flying kick and this came up. A hoping teep in technically a flying kick idiot.

    As for you calling me a retard for mentioning elbows.
    This is false there are flying elbows...you call others retards but cant even look back into your own comments

    "flying kick" is a special case of a jump kick, any kick delivered in mid-air, i.e. with neither foot touching the ground.

    So @spacetime you maybe right about the kick actually a little more research found this. Technically all variations of jump kicks. My bad but ill admit i can be wrong at times

    As far as I know, Muay Thai is pretty anti fly kicks. It is more like boxing with feet - stick to the basics.

    I think its because of the focus on a strong base possibly

    I didnt mean to start at discussion about what exactly flying kicks as definition are. Lets call it just kicks with both feet in the air in MT. Regarding Saenchei they write in the comments imo that he incorporates part of his game from Muay Boran.

    the jumping teep or scissor teep is "common" I suppose.

    I have pulled it off in a fight before.

    That was more just me trying to counter troll spacetime haha. I can also see that muay boran uses step up and "both feet off the air" techniques so im sure hes influenced by that

    I am not an MT guy and know next to nothing about Thai martial arts other than that Ramon Dekkers is my nr.1 stand up fighter (kicks involved) and I watch a MT fight from time to time. Thats why I am asking . There are quite some experts here

    I did not even know there were fights like the Saenchai one without gloves and different rulesets.

    @shincheckin
    great images! thx

    Where's the power?

    Not trying to be a dick, but if you're going to spin then you should try and generate power from the spin.
