Hopping Roundhouse Question

Wouldn't it be more fluid to step the rear leg in FRONT of the the lead leg, so the roundhouse kick can be thrown with greater ease. I was under the impression that for the side kick, one was to step behind, but for the roundhouse, forward. Just wondering.

yes, it is more fluid that way :-\ For a hopping roundhouse kick I don't my feet in front or behind, I bring them together. Must be a stylistic difference, but I'm sure that you can get used to it.

Hopping Roundhouse only for people who are hopping mad, or hopping crazy. Try Omplata instead, work much better.

I love it when I see someone step in to throw a kick - any kick!
Really easy to block/parry/sway back and my personal favourite - step straight in - they miss, you nail 'em.
