It's not what I want, it is what it is. There is no such thing as being double jointed. Good for your aunt? I'm going with you're wildly misunderstanding how your flexibility helps you kick, ballet sure, but kick power and flexibility don't have a lot to do with each other. All flexibility will do is help you reach your target, different parts of the body that help you with power, as in muscles instead of tendons and joints. So unleas you're throwing savate kicks the two have very little to do with one another.
