The Shuriken Twist is a mix between the Butterfly Twist and the Illusion Twist.
Like the Butterfly Twist, the Shuriken Twist is a "true" twist, and lands one foot at a time. Like the Illusion Twist, the Shuriken Twist kicks it's base leg up and over, with the kicking foot traveling in a circle from the ground, back to the ground. However, this is not all...
Unlike the Illusion Twist, the Shuriken Twist is designed to hit on the way down, like an axe kick. Due to this, the take off is usually adjusted so that it would do exactly that.
Made popular by the highly venerated Ben Brown, the Shuriken Twist is one of the more faster and harder hitting of the offensive Btwist variations.
