I find that if I turn my toes pointing slightly down, like 30-degrees from parallel, that I get much more power. This is because the hips get into play much more, as well as the glutes. I send people flying when I do the sidekick. It's not a kick I train very often either, it doesn't fit in very often in a Muay Thai style of fighting.

Hi
why not?.. all you need is train and sparring experience..
Im not the fastest kicker ever.. In order to do that technique you need more Timing.. timing makes you look faster than you really are.
All you need is more training and experience.
But first of all.. You need to believe in yourself.. I think with patient and faith combined with a good and serious training you can be able to do whatever you want. That's what martial arts teach us.
Please, don't think you won't ever be faster or stronger. All you need you have it between you ears, if you know what i mean.
Train Hard , train smart. I know you can do it anything, my friend.
Thanks.

Oh dear.
Um...like an encouraging speech...

Like "go on, you can do it" that you say to your 4 year old on his/her first day at school when they don't want to leave you.

I think.
