Crescent Kick - 旋__腿

Here I am again. I can't find the middle character. Not even sure what the radicals are...

I've tried several things and come up empty.

風 is a traditional radical (Kangxi 182), and more hidebound dictionaries might not allow you look it up under any "alternative" radicals (the possible inclusion of a total stroke count index will get around this problem, however. The Far East C-E and ABC ECCE are two Kangxi-based dictionaries that both include total stroke count indexes, but FWIW, of the two, only the ABC ECCE allows the bonus of simplified character look-up in addition). It has been retained as a simplified radical, in the 4-stroke form of 风.

Thanks everybody, I'm not sure why I couldn't find that one. I should've recognized 'wind'.

redman, tornado kick isn't the same as crescent kick, but it's a more advanced combination of 2 crescent kicks. Many of the english translations are not great.
