Me doing a jumping back side kick. Not sure how this will come out, but here it is.
Here's one of me doing a scissor kick. Sorry about the image quality. Taken a few years ago.
Heres a nice one... XD
Let me explain how this happened. I was in Taekwondo, and someone was testing so I was asked to hold a board for one of his breaks. He was doing a back kick on my board. When he broke the board a piece of it flew at my face and put a nice deep gash across my right eyebrow.
At first I wasn't sure what happened, then blood was literally pouring down my face. I ran to the bathroom and another women came in to help me, she pressed a paper towel to it untill it stopped bleeding. My instructor then put some iodine from a Q-tip on it, then a band aid. He found some cut adheisive and put that on after, which is also suppose to help prevent scarring.
So now it looks pretty gross. It has brown stuff from the iodine, and blueish/purple stuff from the glue, plus the already reddness. I'm not allowed to spar untill it heals now, which really sucks because I have a fight in two weeks at the Arnold Classic. Hopefully it'll be healed by then.
I probebly could use stitches, but that glue seemed to work. My TKD instructor gave me more in case it starts bleeding again.

Hope you like silhouettes (sorry for the darkness)
If you move your head around your monitor a bit, you can see a better contrast
Nice kecks. And that's not a typo.
I swear that skidmark was photoshop'd in by the MODs...
Nice kick! Why do you call it a scissor kick? It looks like you are doing a flying 2 directional kick, as you are kicking in 2 directions at the same time in the air. I thought a flying scissor kick was one where you take down an opponent by wrapping oyur legs around them like a scissor goes around the item it is cutting
My students after Dragon2020's tournament in Newport, Wales last weekend.
Looks like they cleaned up in the medals stakes, Gizmo!
I think it's because the legs resemble the blades of a pair of scissors that are extended away from each other. I've always heard it called that. You might be thinking of the scissor takedown (jumping up and trapping the opponent between the legs).
Yes I am as that is how it is labeled in the 15 volume Encylopedia of TKD. I only asked as it was obvious that you weren't using thatsame reference. I guess it is just a matter of terminology preference or how one was taught. The reason I say flying 2 directional kick is that you are flying (feet of the ground) & kicking in 2 directions, hence flying 2 directional kick. You see one kick is a twisting kick to one side & the other is a side kick to the opposite side. I think that terminolgy makes sense

That's one of the problems with discussing Taekwondo with an ITF member-different terminology for the same technique, leading to confusion.
Scissor kick: side kick combined with twisting kick aimed at two separate targets simultaneously.
Scissor takedown: flying kick executed by wrapping your legs around an opponent and taking them to the ground.
great pics all
