    Oops, that was supposed to say "certainly NOT good enough".

    It's actually easier to execute, because you're able to spin a lot faster.

    Every school has different names for different kicks. Take it up locally with what you're being taught. All that's gonna happen here is a lot of arguing over what words mean.

    It is a term perhaps unique to Chang Hon. "Turning Kick" is what many people refer to as "Roundhouse" although in the Chang Hon System there is a "Turning kick" done to target at the side front, and a "Side Turning Kick" where you turn more sideways to a target directly ahead as you typically do in sparring. "Reverse Turning" Turns in the reverse or opposite direction. with the contact surface (Called the "Tool" in the system) being the back of the heel (Called Heel in the system as opposed to bottom of the heel which the system calls "Back Sole") if the foot is flexed 90 degrees or so in relation to the leg, or with foot extended the ball of the foot can be used - Hope this helps.

    I've been practising this one on the heavy bag. It's quite fun given that I come from WT where low kicks are not allowed.

    Not sure what I would call it though! When I think "wheel kick" I think low to high, like a wheel.
