The most efficient way to strike the kick drum is to let the beater rebound off the head. Anything else is just a derivation from or a combination of heel up and heel down motions. It seems these "exotic" techniques will develop and evolve all by themselves if you just keep on practicing both heel up and heel down and trying to go past your limits.
I play Kumu Drums. I also shoot videos.
