Deep hip rotators, is something that becomes less used as we age.
Doctors recommend patients that have stopped using there deep hip muscles to take up practicing Tai Chi.

To access deep hip muscles, it is necessary to move slowly, this is why Tai Chi is recommend.

Once you have learned where and what these muscles are used for, they can be used more effectively in your katas or forms and for kicking purposes.

Ballet dancers practice their "Turn outs" utilizing these deep hip rotators, something that martial artists should do to perfect their kicking abilities and prevent degenerative injuries.

Here is an introduction video on this topic.
