Hi Everyone,

Wow! What a great response. Thank you to everyone who sent a resource...
there are many here to investigate.

Here is a summary of what I received:

Re: Biomechanics of the soccer kick...

----------------------------------------------------------------------
There was a paper in MSSE this past fall
(Nunome et al, Vol 34(12), pp 2028-2036. That looks at the instep kick
and performs a 3D kinetic analysis. That would be a good place to start.

Have you checked www.pubmed.org
----------------------------------------------------------------------
there was a kinetic analysis of kicking in last month's Medicine
and Science in Sports and Exercise.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I might recommend using the KA Video program. With it, you can view
image sets of skilled and unskilled performers of soccer kicks.

The joints are clearly marked and the software gives you biomechanical
data. Most are in 3D.

The software is here: http://www.kavideo.sfsu.edu/default.htm
...and the soccer kicks are here:
