    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Rate my bagwork (5 min)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ6_s72-hTM

    Some boxing to start off with, then some work with the MMA gloves and a few kicks, elbows and knees, then finishing up with a few uppercuts at the end with the big gloves again.

    I need to work on my distancing and not popping my elbows out to the side. My kicks really suck. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm getting a "This video is not available" message when I try to see your video.

    It takes like 15 minutes for the video to actually get posted I think.

    yeah your distancing was pretty awful. you were so close to the bag that your jab was only coming out about halfway before it hit. when you throw a jab to move in, you should be two arm lengths away from the bag and use your footwork to cover that distance.

    with your elbows remember for a horizontal elbow that its well horizontal, you are more turning your elbow over and hitting with the top of your arm. that wont do much.

    as for your kicks, turn your hips more and relax when you throw them. also when you throw them in a combination its punches AND kicks not punches THEN kicks. you are stopping right after you throw the punches, pausing a bit, then throwing the kick. that will get you KOed by someone who picks up on it and throws a counter overhand

    Have to agree with Alex there, you tend to stand too close to the bag on that video (so do I sometimes, but I'm trying to improve my distancing). Also, I noticed that, especially in the boxing segments, you were dropping your hands repeatedly, mostly after what I think were your crosses (I dunno if you're a southpaw or orthodox fighter, so I'm not sure). Your shots did have a good amount of power, though.

    Yeah, my distancing was a little wonky as I was worried of stepping out of frame. I'll work on that in the future though.

    And thanks for the rest of the tips. I haven't trained Muay Thai since August, so I'm rusty as all hell.

    Protect your head when you kick. You don't drop your hands as bad as I did starting out mind you. So it looks as if you've already heard this suggestion. My trainers emphisize to expect/anticipate the counter when ever I kick. Just the same as you train to check a leg kick and counter. Leaving your hands down leaves you open.

    That reminds me of a question. When I first learned Muay Thai, I learned that, when I kick and throw the one hand down, I should take my other hand and have it cross over my face, and place the back of the hand on the opposite cheek. Other places just have you leave that hand in place on the same side cheek. Is one way better than the other?

    This would be your coach's call. I have been taught both ways, and give my students the option. The cross way is to defend against the straight coming down the pipe, and the side way is to protect against hooks and simultaneous headkicks. The cross way gets some flack for potentially obscuring vision.

    Either way you cut it, make sure the opposite side hand comes up.
