Please to critique my crappy punching video
I would do more, but my equipment (training and recording) is quite limited. My hooks and weaves don't feel right and I'm not sure I'm getting enough power out of the cross though it seems to knock the pads back hard ;)
Anyway, I know it's a crappy and short vid, but if you see anything, I'd appreciate the advice.
move your back foot more, so that your hips can turn on back side punches.
you're doing a good job pushing the punches from your nose, and not telegraphing or winding up much...but I'd advise putting your hip into it a little more (you might want to lose the glasses too, mine used to fly off when I'd get into it).
If your legs are a little bent, to isolate the balls of the feet...and you turn a little on the same side foot of your punching hand, for crosses and hooks....there will be more snap in the hip to help fling the arm out with speed...and your body mechanics will allow for more oomph.
Stay at it, and perhaps more double or triple jabs.
More snap on your punches. Good job not winding up.
I'm assuming you're new, but try doing more than one bob at a time; constantly moving your head will ensure you do so in a fight.
You need to finish your jab before you throw the right, and keep your elbows in.
Thanks for all the advice guys. I'll definitely try and work on all those points.
FYI, my striking training is part of my shootfighting training, which I have been training simultaneously with BJJ for the last 7-8 months.
gzk, your stance looks wierd to me, it's very open and forward facing, and your hands are too high? Or could it be the angle of the camera? I hold my fists on my cheek and my elbows tight against my body when I want to trade punches.
The best you can do is to take a video of you including your feet. The feet holds the secret to good punching.
Your punches have no direction you look like you are facing down and your hands are too close to each other. Your jab was nice but you need 2 go see a well trained practitioner
to critique you

The stance you have already does much better at protecting your face and kidneys. If you keep your guard too far in you don't have the reaction time to stop punches before they hit you, you are just absorbing the impact instead of redirecting it. Plus if you have your hands right in front of your face you will end up punching yourself in the face when you get punched.
What do you mean by "no direction"?
