Kick like classic side kick - backside of foot. There are some variations though - can also spin and kick with heel like Li He kick:

Yin-yang hand position question for 5 Animal Qigong
It is a sealing / preserving method for practitioners at a more advanced stage. For women, I cannot tell from my experience because I am not a woman - but the connection to Yin and Yang and Dantian position is slightly different. The focus point and .. actually all is different but it takes a long time to go over all this in just a small post. It is a very complicated topic, and people who have studied meridians may be able to tell you a lot more than me. What is nourishing for a woman is different in internal practice and the connection between heart and Dantian .. as well as the rotation, is different. Men should practice as men and women as women - interchanging the way of posture is not good and may disturb the internal balance - required the practitioner is at an advanced stage and has good control over the focus.

Many people who practice internal arts with wrong energetic poles may become strange - may feel something or becoming oversensitive - that is caused by this imbalance. Again I can only speak for men, and I found this "poles" between Yin and Yang important to stay calm and to have a replenishing effect afterward. 
My main interest is always in practical understanding - and after some years I felt the difference of this postures, this information is superstitious if not practical understood - so I never had interest in going into the more complicated texts of meridian practice. We were taught in Wudang whats right and whats wrong - the rest is up to you - keep the practice as simple as possible and you get the most of it.

Yin-yang hand position question for 5 Animal Qigong
Seems like a misinterpretation - an American student wrote this text - both ring fingers touch - infinity - continuing the circle.
The posture differs for men and women - for men the left-hand touches with the ring finger the ring finger of the right hand. while the thumb connects to the ring finger on the right hand. - Do you need more information on this? I think it already is explained in the online classes.

Most information out there which is not from our website is often poor quality - mostly student translate or explain some texts or information but most of them have no practical knowledge or maybe learned something wrong.

A practical (non-technique) sword question
Well, you cant have everything for 119$ - you get what you pay for basically - but the blade itself is good excellent. The materials of the fittings are alloy instead of brass - therefore the price. So the rest of the sword is much lighter compared to the blade - this is why is throwing your gravity center a little off and won't stay in your sheath. Besides, that its a good value for the price. There is no real fix for your issue since this kind of sword is supposed to be carried in a sword bag.

A practical (non-technique) sword question
Where did you get this han style Jian? Usually, a good sword should be able to stay in the sheath even if you hold it upside down.

Jian training Re: online academy
To be proficient in sword the most basic are the basic postures. A good swordmaster shows no fatigue when going into lower xübu, gombu or mabu. Best is you show us a video of what you are training - but there will also be a sword video coming up in the online school.

Jian training Re: online academy
the modern taiji Jian design is more made to be a classical fencing weapon (gentleman weapon) - while the Han sword design favors breaking through armor - it is the older design and was made to be used in a war against armored soldiers.
