If you let the leg come out in front of you, you won't have the problem. Likewise, if you bend over (grab a chair or something) to rotate the pelvis downward (belly button toward the floor), I'm guessing you could get that sidekick position significantly higher, because rotating the pelvis like that will remove the mechanical obstruction you're hitting.
    I understand what you mean, that is exactly how the jam feels. My uni offers a free physio consultation with sport membership so I'll ask about it there. Otherwise I guess I'll just have to kick slightly differently. Thanks for your help.

    Check the rest of site Bugeisha recommended too (Stadion), it has other good advice on kicking and stretching too.
