    I was messing with kage's back-turned flipkick (u/f+K) and I notice that sometimes kage remain back-turned after hitting the opponent, and sometimes he dont. Why ??? I'm asking this question cuz when kage remain back-turned it is possible to hit the opponent with the TT-sweep after the flipkick. Thanks a lot.

    he has two back turned kickflips. you're getting them confused. the one where he remains with his back turned is ub+K, and the one where he turns around is uf+K. ub+K does much more damage than uf+K.

    Which one gives a free TT-sweep ??? Got to be u+K...

    ub+K. and if it's a really big MC you can combo off it, too. there's a movie of one somewhere on vfdc..check out kage's section.

    Yeah I already saw the movie. Very cool combo !!! But I though that this move (the one in the movie) was u/f+K. I didnt knew that u/b+K was possible from a back-turned position. Does it require a special motion ?? I mean, tapping u/b+K is suppose to make kage turn around... I think.

    nope, no special motion, but i have noticed that it's pretty strict when it comes to the ub motion - sometime you do just turn around. i've always entered it as (quickly) hold G, ub, release G, K. makes it nearly impossible to accidentally turn around.

    and remember ub or uf is always in relation to the direction in which kage is facing.

    Thanks for the advice. I will try this move tonight... hehe. BTW, have you tried to buffered this move (u/b+K) during another move recovery time ?? I think it could make the move easier to do. Like: opponent is down, u/f+P+G ura trick (or DP which is my personal favorite), then right after that u/b+K to hit the opponent from behind. bye.

    well there's no real trickery i can suggest with this move. like any other move you just toss it out and hope it hits. although, it is awfully cool to nail a low riser with this move..try it if you expect opp. to low rise when you find your back turned to him
