, the constant pressure on the whole kicking leg. Do feel it only from knee downward. To feel it up to thigh I have to stiffen the leg and kick far out of streamline. Will see, if an extended upkick will helpt ot get this feeling
Mini FPs ? Not sure what you mean ,Flippers ? Nope, but anyway I used to feel it much more from the knee down like you mentioned until I finally worked out better BALANCE ...BALANCE is the key . Now I can honestly say that my kick seems to originate a lot more from my core and glutes and my legs are more relaxed .I don't think a stiff leg or an extended up kick will really do much good but I guess it can give you an initial temporary feeling to aim for .
