Interesting. We have the same approach in NGA, except for the side kick. Now I need to go try that entry to a side kick.We still do it that way at my school. In fact, the first part of the move (where he brought his knee straight up) is the same whether we're doing a roundhouse (turning) kick, front kick, or side kick. That way your opponent doesn't know what's coming. So, to answer the original question, I would just call that a roundhouse kick.
Not really. I teach students to chamber the same way, regardless of the kick (or as close as they can manage...). So this is just a roundhouse kick. The slide is just one of several methods taught to close distance if the target is outside of range. It's still a roundhouse.
And when did he start hanging the other belt off the side?
How often are you going to get an "informative" rating for a Master Ken post, eh?In season 4 ep1, Master Ken promoted himself to Red/White (although I think there's a bit of black in there, too). He also promoted every student except for Billy, who has been expecting a promotion to Black Belt for quite some time. In season 4 ep 4, Billy stole Master ken's old black belt (with 11 stripes BTW), and started his own school in the broom closet. This is the last show episode so far, but after that one, I notices Master Ken wearing the black belt on the side during his "extra content" videos, so I guess he took it back. He also started wearing the beret upon his self-promotion to Red/White.
Yup... How I learned it in the first place back int he 80's. Front, Side, Round all can happen from that single chamber position.
