    :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.


    Draven:
    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?).


    WhiteShark:
    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...


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


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


    Kidspatula:
    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.


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



    Again, thanks everybody!
