    My first punch bag was an army surplus kit bag filled with rags and taped around with duct tape.
    The kit bag looked like this:

    It was too light, it sucked trying to hang it up, but it was cheap. Might be a short-term solution for you.

    Sorry for the derail.

Keep it tight in the middle to reduce sagging. Now find some rope and a safe way to hang it from a tree branch or something.
    And this will be the constructing plan of it.Real smart man.Thanx

    OK. Here's my kicks video. I only have a makiwara at the moment, so I'm not kicking too hard.

    As for the rest - I have no excuses.

    Pros

    1. I'm actually hitting things (while nursing my neck to health).

    Cons

    1. Foot stays in the air.

    2. Hands aren't up properly.

    3. Mechanical.

    4. Slow and telegraphed.

    5. Typo: 'pile' instead of 'pine' (hemorrhoid parapraxis).

    Your makiwara makes me maki-waahhwaahh.

    Good to see you looking so... fit.

    Cons

    1. Foot stays in the air.

    2. Hands aren't up properly.

    3. Mechanical.

    4. Slow and telegraphed.

    How long did you do karate for? It takes a while to un-learn the bad stuff and adapt your technique.
    Your kicking target didn't help your fluidity or technique; having to not destroy your foot/shin on the "pile" cramped your style and slowed you down.
    As an ex-karate type myself, I always had to remember to get my hip over more and follow through past the bag, as opposed to stopping on contact.
    You might not do that when you're not kicking the wood?

    I'd also have liked to have seen your standing foot's position, but it was out of frame.

    Over in LLL, I'll review what you were wearing and explain why you need to wear more colour.

    I'll leave the kicking critique to the experts in future :-)

    I did Karate from '89 to '94. My kicks were relatively fast, accurate and strong, but: 1. not necessarily by MT standards; and 2. not any more.

    I think the hips are a problem, too.

    Yes, the makiwara is a pain - it really stops me committing, and limits my strikes. As you've no doubt seen, I've a thread on outdoors kick bags.

    I'm wearing jeans a loose blue shirt now. Is that better?

    That's why I mentioned your foot position of your standing leg... one of the best things I was ever shown was the position and angle of the standing foot and how it affects the hips and enables more... uhhh... penetration.

    bags are obviously a better bet.
    I hadn't seen your thread; you generally PM me when you've made a thread that you want me to see. Am I off your mailing list?:duckie:

    -Lots of goofy panantukan type stuff.
    -No kicking (I really dislike kicking that bag) and no circling (staying off the grass).

    Put some pop in that jab. Also you're to close to the bag and kind of mucking up your technique. When slipping, Don't bend at the waist, whenever you roll under stuff you're supposed to do it at the knees.

    when you're throwing hooky punches you're letting them come out way to wide, the tighter they stay to your body the harder they'll hit and the faster they'll be.

    Choose one leg to have forward and keep it forward and this will give you a set mechanic for every punch you throw. people that switch stances are generally just poor in both of them and tend to throw weird punches that are like a cross between two punches.

    Also it looks like you lean forward a lot, which you shouldn't do because it takes your balance out from under you and hinders your mobility as well as disconnecting your strikes from your body.
