I have been trying to perfect the basic KM moves recently and have been looking at the front kick to the groin. I came across this guys well illustrated tips
and he is big on recoiling after the kick and I have also read this same suggestion of recoiling in Darren Levine's book. Quote from there: "a regular front kick to the groin. Recoil your right (kicking) foot."
My confusion in regards to this is that I think the last time in my class I may have been told that after the kick that I should put the foot straight down from the groin so you have gained some ground on the attacker and then to follow up with some elbow and knee strikes to finish the attacker off. This is more in line with continuous movement and Kevins excellent video here:
So I guess my question is, do you recoil your foot to fighting stance or do you drop your foot in front and move forward attacking further i.e. retzev?
Maybe the answer is both depending on the situation but it would be good to hear some other opinions on it so I know I'm not missing something.
