    As was said before you drop your hands alot. I belieive boxers trditionally keep their hands forming some sort of pyramid elbows clos to the body and lead hand 4-6 inches in front of face and other hand at chin level the hand that is not thrown should stay protecting the face. Your kicks as well seem to suffer from the bag being to high. lower the wave master you will not have to worry about hitting the plastic and your puches won't have the leverage adavntage, unless you plan to fight someone that tall. Watch some older fights or better yet go watch amature boxing, and I'm not talking about a fight in someones backyard, it should be something you pay to see for around here the fee is 15- 50 bucks or something like that small venue fights are good. Watch MMA venues too if they have them. If you know anyone who does boxing get them to show you how to throw the jab, the cross, the hook, the upper and the overhand right/left. Once you've learned how boxers throw punches learn a few drills they do and see if you can go through one of them, they are tougher than they look.

    is that a tapout shirt?

    not sure why you are doing bagwork in jeans but either you have very slow kicks or they were really dragging your legs.

    On top of everything else said: I am worried about your distance control. I.e. You seem to be reaching on many of your punches, which explains a lot of your power issues. Your kicks need to be shortened significantly, no point in throwing a kick that everyone will see coming from a mile away. Tucking your knee and dropping it down back underneath you will add power and reduce the chance of you getting knocked off balance.

    another thing.

    Your kicks quite frankly sucked.

    Way more power and speed needed
