I know the angle is bad. But I live in a very small apartmart and there's barely any place to train at home.
here's an idea: don't swing it like Chuck Norris.:new_black
Yes I have a heavy bag. That is an older video. I'll post up a vid of me hitting the heavy bag once I practice again.
Relax, take a deep breath and relax your body. They way you are kicking is forcing your body to work against its self. I did this for years, eventually I relaxed and the kicks became harder on their own.
Also looked like you had a single Thai pad. I am not sure why those damn things are even sold alone. Get another one and look in a book or two at ways to hold them properly.
I promise more when I am more awake J
I see what it is! I watched it over and over and could not place what I saw was wrong. Then I had it. You are kicking at the target not through it. The key is to kick past the target. Roll you hips into the kick., they should be turned over before the foot hits when kicking that high. I will try to get some vids tomorrow.
Thank you. I will keep this in mind the next time I practice.
Turn your hip in more and keep your left hand up at least if not both
edited because I don't know my right from my left
Your shin also appears to be sliding up over the pads rather than continuing through them. By the time your leg hits the target it should generally be cutting across rather than continuing to gain elevation. If your hip is rolling complete over this should naturally happen.
as your shin strikes the pad your rear knee should be facing almost the opposide direction. Also its hard to tell from the video but u should be on tip toes as you pivot for the kick.
