Male step naming?

I wasn't quite sure where to put a technical question such as this, but it is concerning a primarily male step. So, I had a question about a name. What is the "official ballet name" so to speak, of a "540 kick"? I can't seem to find it. Thank you!

Actually I do not think it originated in ballet. It is an Asian martial art movement I believe. It may originally be from karate, judo or some other martial art. In the ballet studio, I have only heard it called a 540.
