(1) With a Thai angle kick, does kicking 'downward' amount to turning the hip over more? Is there anything else involved? It seems people bend the kicking knee more as well. (2) How does elevation affect this? For instance, I imagine kicking 'downward' on a guys leg. I then picture everything remaining the same except I abduct my kicking leg up to his head. Now it seems like I am kicking parallel to the ground unless I bend my knee (more). Thanks for the thoughts.
