Fei Long faking out his opponent with Tenshin in Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a half-circle backward motion and pressing kick, Fei Long attempts to hook his own leg with the opponent's; if successful, the hook allows him to flip over the opponent to the other side ("Over here!"). Right after landing on the other side, Fei Long has a very strict window of time to unleash any attack or combo before the opponent can retaliate. Since it is a command grab, the move is cannot be blocked.

The EX Special version is faster, allows Fei Long to grab his opponent at a slightly further distance than the normal version, and makes the very first move performed right after the side switch virtually unblockable.

Yun, Yang, and Akuma (as a followup to Hyakkishu) use a similar technique, referred to as Zenpou Tenshin.


The technique does no damage at all, and it mostly allows Fei Long to trick or confuse his opponent and set up different kinds of combos.
