No, there can't be anything wrong with using a sweep kick that others have used. How can such a thing be copyrighted? But, you might not want to film it in exactly the same way. =D

Nick Simmon's copying appears to be a little more egregious than just using poses, though.

Check this out, for one. Know Your Meme. Or this. You can find other comparisons.

Personally, I don't know if I can get my undies in too much of a bundle over what Simmons did, really. It might be more a case of imitation being the highest form of flattery. I know when I was a kid a lot of my learning to draw was by more-or-less imitating the work of the comic artists I liked. But then none of that was published as my own. =P
