    Meng.. are you striking the bag with the outside of your foot or leg? Try to point the toe of your striking leg up a bit. You want to impact with your shin, not the calf or ankle.

    Some minor advice, relax your leg a little more. It seems like your tensing it up. Your hips are doing the work, just let your leg follow. In back work try to get UP on the balls of your feet to really dig in that pivot on your plant leg. Your leg is also suppose to be coming into the pad at an angle not straight into it. Hard for me to tell in the vid but its good general advice. Also, its not horribly relevant to your kicking technique but keep your hands higher, period. Even in bag work its a must to keep your hands high enough or you'll end up throwing kicks with your hands down. Also in regards to the hands, I try to keep one hand up when I kick. The same side arm as the side I'm kicking with I still move the same as your doing. However, I try to keep the back hand up by my head.

    Keep up the good work.

    I remember you said you were gonna stop by some weekend, but I didn't see you.
    I'd love to train at Boston Sanda Kungfu, but I commute 1 hour to work to and from, so that seriously takes away my free time.

    As for the next weekend, I got totally caught up in trying to graduate.

    Once I move to my new apartment closer to work, I hope to have the free time to head downtown once a week and one the weekends. Transitioning to work has been tough.

    I hit with the very base of my shin. I err on the side of my instep and sometimes even the outside ankle, partly because of the hip turning obsession. Yeah, this is something I need to work on.

    This is just my opinion, and I could be totally off on this, but I recommend trying to keep your leg a bit straighter when kicking and imagine your leg is fused to your hip.

    I'll try both ways from where I am now: stiffer and looser. And I'll mess around with the stiffness at the leg's attachment to the hip.

    well I don't mean to make your leg "stiff" or "tense" exactly, just try to keep it more straight and have a stiffer connection at the hip.

    Different gyms, different "kick". I've been taught both and prefer the bent leg because it stops forward movement from the opponent.
