We have found a Problem, though. Once I fixed my footwork for the jerk, after lots of practice, it was looking good--until the coach checked the angle from behind and realized that my leading knee is caving inwards rather than pushing out like it should be. That's, you know, bad. So we tried to fix it, only to discover that I can't move the right way. When he tried to gently push my knee to the correct angle, it made my entire calf down into my foot on the outside cramp up.
Apparently, that's a sign of severe inflexibility through the ankle and one of those tiny muscles in the calf. So I have a lot of mobility and massage and work to do, there. (Crap.)
