Taekwondo Tornado Kick

This page teaches you how to do a Taekwondo tornado kick (or a jumping spinning roundhouse kick). To learn other kicking techniques, please visit our Taekwondo kicks page.

* To get very good at your kicks, you must practice! I use a stationary kicking dummy at home in order to practice difficult kicks. You should also read these martial arts kicking books to get ideas on how to improve your technique. Or check out these kicking DVDs.

Written Instructions - How to do a Tornado Kick

  • A tornado kick is very similar to a spinning roundhouse kick but with a jump at the end of the move. Remember to turn backwards when starting this move. You will kick from the pivot foot. The spin and jump will give you greater power and higher kicks.
  • Try not to hop when spinning. Makes the move "easier" but slows you down & gives the move away.
