I think that if your leg kick is more efficient and longer the urge for that extra kick is less.
In freestyle it looks more like a bounce back effect that is accentuated now that bounce is present more or less for free.
Agree that it is a bit artificial to try it if it doesnt come naturally, but whats the harm in trying out a new little dance?
No harm at all I was just trying to articulate what I feel since I can't really explain how to do it. I guess if I had to say how to try it would be try to lope some for the heck of it. If you have a good 6 beat which I do in both free and back it's just kind of natural for me to let that hip driven side toe flick . Have fun with it!
