Default Sun Yang Kick Timing

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uncOBURz-6o

I've notice this before, but never looked that closely. During the 3 kick phase of Sun Yangs 4 bt kick I noticed the in between kicks (more like flutters) have a slight pause after the left (main, spear kick). So instead of a triplet feel (Charles' waltz analogy) it is more like a 16th note pulse with an eighth note (left main spear kick) followed by two sixteenths (right then left flutter). In music the whole cycle would be: 1 ee + uh, 2 ee + uh. Right kick only (1 ee + uh), followed by Lft (2) rest (ee) rt (+) left (uh) flutters.

Then repeat. The delay is under the ee of beat 2. So I count in 4s with 2 and ee being tied together to form the eighth note. try counting 1 2 3 4, 2 2 3 4 with his kick.
L - - - R - L R

Hope this makes sense. Then I guess it's back to waltz timing for final sprint?

Keep in mind that this is a single stroke cycle replayed over and over. Your analysis seems correct but this is just one of his several different kick patterns.

Actually I first noticed the delay in this vid. There's definitely a glide after left kick before flutters.

Yes in that one you can see a variety of kicks that sun yang does. some 2 beat, some 4 beat some 6 beat. 4 beat can come in a variety of flavors and the one you spotted is one of them.
