That has been my thinking too. For me, the recovery arm falling into a spear, combined with the opposite arm pulling begins the hip rotation. There are probably a lot of other subtle movements that contribute initially to the rotation that I'm not even aware of or can't put into words. Then downward kick seems to 'assist' that rotation and pushes the spearing arm to its full extension.

In this video of Terry it's hard to tell if one comes before the other, or if they happen simultaneously. EDIT: looking at it more closely it appears the kick assists Terry in the latter half of the rotation.

Anyway, I'm anxious to hear what the coaches say.

I may try to delay my kick a bit more and see what happens.
