    :surprised Easy for you to say young lady. But unfortunately old fart like me needs to work extra on flexibility, so I donīt have to fight my own muscles (or somesuch) to get that damn kick up.

    Thanks to everybody for their helpful comments!

    So, the consensus is that I need to work diligently on my hip flexibility for all degrees of freedom of the hip joint for/by different types of flexibility/stretching types: "static" ("slow"), dynamic and PNF.

    Individual replies below.

    I have been working towards side and front splits on and off for the last couple of months (mostly "off" though, the be honest -- hence not much progress).
    I guess a more consistent approach is needed! Might go back to that book by "Tom Kurz" (sp?).

    My hip flexibility is indeed poor.
    The form of my lower kicks seems fine, with the support foot indeed ending up parallel to the target.
    When I try to go higher the form "collapses" (this is the very issue I want to correct), probably due the absence of flexibility...

    PNF helped me greatly for my hamstrings.
    Yes. I see pain in my future.

    I stretch everyday. On the days when I train I do stretch after exercising.

    Improving the kick by kicking worked slowly but surely for my lower kicks.
    For the high kick (head level) it seems that so many things "conspire against me" -- flexibility, balance, strength -- that training these different aspects
    individually (initially) seems the only way to go for me.

    "fight my own muscles" that's kinda how I feel too.

    Again, thanks everybody!
