It's like he's hitting a baseball almost.

The pivot of the foot is passive and depends on momentum and foot angle. If you try to rotate your front foot on the ground you will leak power.

Seppo vs James Conrad is basically the same as KJ vs Seppo. James Conrad comes in with a lot more momentum and follows thru with a lot more momentum and foot pivot than Seppo.

Yeah his follow through is not something that one would teach to a new player. It's probably ok for him, but that's only because everything else he's doing right. The rotation only happens out of self-preservation, it's not really important in regards to the hit.

But you can see the force he puts into the ground is incredible and its cool you can almost see the energy transfer up his body into the arm.
