Frankly, I disagree with you that they're that similar, and most tournaments that have any sort of rank distinction are also looking for people from registered schools who can back that rank.

That's a surprisingly practical answer. I will try that.

It's at the top of the calf, right in the mass of muscle where it starts to taper from the fleshiest point. And my leg is slightly flexed, maybe a 170 degree angle.

I have been putting most of the impact through the heel, justifying it with that it absorbs the impact through lengthwise bones rather than risking a horizontal force on the thinner metatarsal bones. I started moving to a whole-foot stomp in part to create more noise and in part to reduce the pain, but I hadn't noticed a difference.
