A few things I picked up:Quote:

Another thing is that you lead with your head a lot. Your head seems to be directly over your lead leg way too much. This really makes it a lot easier for people to both hit you in the face and legs. You don't have as much time to react to things, your ability to check kicks is stifled, and your weight being so far forward makes your movement more awkward.
Your feet are all over the place. You want to really try and maintain more of a balanced stance 100% of the time so you can launch things easily at any time. Since you bring your feet together or are losing that balanced, sturdy stance, you end up stumbling around when you attack or get attacked.
You're movement is without purpose. Don't just circle for the sake of circling. Always be trying to put yourself in an advantageous position, coming forward, and being in a position where you can attack while minimizing their ability to attack you (i.e., outside their lead hand).
