I agree with everything written here (as usual). Also, one weird thing about the roundhouse kick - it's one of very, very few kicks that gets all is force from hip flexion (pulling the knee towards the body) and not extension - like a front snap kick, but even then the front thrust kick variant does get its power from hip extension (you get the power by extending the hip on the supporting leg). So the roundhouse kick uses opposite muscles to generate force from those used in almost every other kick. Which I always thought was weird... not really relevant to anything in this article, just a side point.
