A note on the scissor kick:
This is essentially the same as doing a split mid-air.  Once you leave the ground and achieve maximum height for your jump, you will SIMULTANEOUSLY thrust your left leg out in a front (or 'twisting') kick, attacking an opponent on your left, AND thrust your right leg out into a side kick, attacking an opponent to your right.  Because of the way you will need to twist your hips, the ball of the left foot (i.e. its striking surface) will actually point mostly backwards (as it would in relation to your right leg if you were doing a split on the ground.)

Those who cannot physically perform the technique will take the appropriate number of steps and then, on the ground, do a Left "twisting" kick toward their left; drop the kicking leg and immediately do a Right side kick toward their right.  The USTF allows students age 35 and over to substitute Ko-Dang hyung for this pattern during testing.
