    Welcome to Martial Talk, Truls.

    Not really too bad for a first try. Keep it up, learning to kick effectively takes some time.

    Focus more on the basics for sparring all the flashy stuff. Yeah it looks cool in movies and it's a good athletic feat but it's a lot slower than a basic front kick. Not saying it won't work ever but it's a lot lower percentage

    I totally agree that a regular front kick or the most basic kicks and strikes are a lot more powerful and more efficient etc :) i just like to practice cool tricks, it gives me motivation and i think its so fun!

    I started sparring with some friends a week ago, so i appreciate feedbacks! I am blind on the left eye, so maybe therefore i just want to practice this more, because i have always have struggled with doing the most basic of the basic. Sorry for bad english, hope im being clear :D What other cool spinning kicks can i learn?

    When i feel like i get the hang of this cool stuff and when i feel happy, i will practice more on self defense combined with striking combos that are more efficient, because then i will have more joy and motivation.

    good start with momentum building
    but the ending of the kick looks more like an inside crescent kick than a tornado which ends is a (prefereably downward) round house
    spinning crescents are still fun to do and more control especially when not landing a kick, it helps to practice tornado when you can land the kick on a bag

    When I know you a little better I can recommend a corker of a cool one. But I'd have to cover the safety of the training progress because it involves a partner, can't really do it without a partner.

    Another name for the tornado kick is the "turning roundhouse kick." When you make the jump, your kicking knee should come up so you can execute a properly chambered roundhouse kick.

    For now, I would work on the basics. This is the rough order I'd go in:
    1. Front Kick, Roundhouse Kick, Side Kick, and Axe Kick
    2. Back Kick, Stepping Kicks (i.e. step-behind side kick), Jumping Kicks
    3. Hook Kick, Spinning Hook Kick, Tornado Kick, Jumping Back Kick
    4. Jump-Spinning Hook Kick
    5. 540 kicks and tricking

    I only ever got good up to level 3 in this list. Spinning hook kicks always were (and still are) a ***** for me to do. I'd spend an hour on them, get them down, get my accuracy great, and then three days later be messing them up again.

    The nice thing about the order of my list is that not only does it build up in terms of the techniques building on the previous step, but they also build down in percentage of success. So if you're hanging around level 3, you've probably got the best techniques (in terms of usefulness) on the list.

    That's actually really true, and likely part of the reason I stopped progressing. Although I trained with someone who did full contact karate tournaments for about 10 years, and had the best spinning kicks (hook, back, and side), I've ever seen. Only way to avoid them was predict when he'd throw them and jump back. If I could get them to his level, I'd have a pretty darn high success rate.

    - Don't swing your right arm. Keep your right fist on your right waist. You may need to do a follow up right punch after your kick.
    - Try to let your right foot to hit on your left palm (use your left hand as your kicking target).
    - Try to land on one leg to check your balance (left leg in your clip).

    When you catch cold, if you do 30 tornado kicks non-stop, you will sweat your cold off. It works real nice.

    This was Bruce Lee's famous triple kicks combo.

    Welcome to the forum. It appears you are decently athletic.
    Let me ask you a few valid questions. Do you know the name of the kick you are doing? Do you know what part of the foot you are striking with and why? Do you know what you Other leg/foot is supposed to be doing? Do you know what your upper body is supposed to be doing?

    Some would say that this is a problem. You know. Crawling before walking before running.
