The jump inside kick is a popular aerial move in Wushu kung fu and in martial arts tricking. It is also known as the tornado kick, whirlwind kick, Nei Xuan Feng Tui, and Xuanfengjiao (旋風腳) in Chinese. For this kick, the performer launches from one leg into a 360° rotation that incorporates an inward snapkick in the air and then lands on the same leg. Advanced practitioners can complete more than 360 degrees in their aerial rotation, including 540 and 720 degrees. The 540 kick is very popular in the tricking community and has many variations. In traditional Chinese longfist kung fu, the tornado kick is commonly used as a long-range attack to the head.
