The moment the body is completely upside down, with the "flash leg" extended and pointing striaght up, and the trail leg lagging behind is the key moment in the flash, and is known as the "flash position".
Drawing inspiration from Guile of Street Fighter, the Flash Kick is one of the most visually appealing tricks despite there being harder variations.
