The move is Sakura's own version of Ryu and Ken's own Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. Instead of floating in the air, Sakura's variation allows her to uprise and then float back down while spinning. She can also use it in the air in most of the appearances.

In Street Fighter IV, the EX version adds an extra kick that launches the opponent, leaving them open for follow-ups.

In the OMEGA Mode in Ultra Street Fighter IV by pressing another kick button while Sakura performs the medium or heavy Shunpukyaku, and Sakura will hold a kick that knocks the opponent on the ground called Shunpurenkyaku.
