How to Do a Tornado Axe Kick in Taekwondo

Learn how to do a tornado axe kick from taekwondo expert Jason Ok in this Howcast video.


I'm going to show you guys a mild variation of an axe kick called a tornado axe kick. I'm going to stand in my fighting stance. One. I like to do a back turn. One. Again, bring your knees up. Two. Then, at the end, three, jump axe kick. Like that. One more time. One, two, this way.

Now I'd like to demonstrate with my partner. He's going to be holding there again. Axe kick, slightly tilt the target. It's important to drop your leg a little earlier than it's supposed to. If you drop your leg right here too straight, because of the momentum it's going to pass the target. You want to maybe have a drop, maybe right here, and just like that, it's going to go down to the target.

Again, it takes a lot of practice. We're going to stand in our fighting stance. Bounce one. That's how we do a tornado axe kick.
