I would say this move is a favoured by the show-off types. But if a situation arises when you have to face away from a foe, then the power of this kick can take them out. (Especially in a self-defence situation, when there are two or more against you.) First you face away from the opponent, keeping eye contact, you pull the knee up and push backwards, striking with the ball of the foot. This can be aimed at the head, neck, chest or knees.
To achieve this, you must turn and then pull the knee away from the target. The power aspect is achieved when you push into the target and strike with the outer ridge of the foot. You must return to the stance quickly or there would be trouble. This move can be avoided so the speed is important. Sidekicks can be aimed at the head, knack, solar plexus, chest, groin and knee
