Critique My Striking
As seen in my avatar.
Actually, for reference in case I change it down the road:
I know I'm no Anderson Silva. Hell, more like Anderson Cooper. Maybe Louie Anderson. Yeah, that's it.

You leaned away when punched a couple of times.

On that first punch instead of bringing your hand back to guard you dropped it down to your thigh... I'd watch out for that, it did leave a great big opening there. If it's something that is a habit you're gonna get KTFOed by someone who notices it.

You looked away and had your chin up a bit. Good job though.

Your hands are low and you are arm punching on your "hook". Also, your Thai clinch sucks even though your opponents is worse. Specifically, your hips are too far away and you aren't standing up on your knees.

I'd add, get your body movement (tai sabaki) behind your strikes. Looks like the shoulder is working but not the butt. Fine for jabs, but crosses (reverse punch?) should have more umph."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez

1) chin down, shoulders up, lean forward.
2) Bring your hands back to your chin, not your waist. They start out fine, but after you complete a strike they go low.
3) step forward with your straight punches more. If you're not going to step forward due to the distancing, sit down more and get more hip rotation.
The circling in between shots was pretty good, and your entry into the clinch wasn't bad.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

How about showing a video? I'm guessing because of the fact you made it a gif and put it as your avatar that you're pretty impressed with yourself. Don't be, if that's the cream of the crop. BAM.Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
