    Another thing i noticed in the second half of the video. You tend to stick your chin up in the air and stand up real straight when you are punching. I'm sure you can see why that's bad. Keep your chin tucked.

    Your hands are also real low towards the end. I imagine you got tired. Have you ever sparred with anyone that will constistently kick at your head? That tends to cure hand-down-itis.

    I want my 3 minutes of life back. I suggest listening to Whiteshark's advice and edit the video next time.

    You aren't turning your hip all the way over when you kick. If you notice, especially on your missed kicks, you knee and your hip are pointing UP, which pretty much means you are kicking mostly with your quads. Even when you make contact it's skidding.

    Thank you for the advice gentlemen. I knew you guys would provide some solid input.

    Until now, all I've received is praise for my performance in the video and it was beginning to make me too confident. I am glad you guys tore me apart. I needed it.

    Like I said, I haven't been sparring for very long but I've seen improvements since I started.

    Omega, I apologize for wasting your time.

    Cheers.

    Yeah in 6 months time you'll be able to theoretically beat your old self up, keep this so you can look back and see your progress :).

    Pretty much any advice i could offer you has been said better by the previous posters so instead i'll give you a tip on how to fix one of your problem areas. Evading every kick and backing up a lot works pretty well on the open mat mainly because there are no space restrictions, once you hit the end of the mat you pretty much have to reset the spar.

    I had/have this problem too (thankyou karate!), one thing you can do which makes for a nice wake up call is to do some sparring in a ring. With limited space and big movements like that you will end up on the ropes or in a corner most of the round with no way to backup and little practice checking kicks or blocking punches. If you can't get any time in the ring (your gym might have a lot more people than mine) estimate the space of one and when you spar on the mats do not go outside that area. This will mean you get punched and kicked more but luckily for you With headgear and 16 ounce gloves on, the hits are not going to hurt much, so why not take a few and learn to fight better.

    one thing I saw was that you really just leave your kicks out there after you throw them. if you could learn to rechamber after a failed kick (or even a good one) it will make you alot faster

    I completely agree with whiteshark and darkson. Further, be more aggressive; you probably could of dominated the dude in the black and diminished his confidence by moving in and getting two/three kick combos on his ass followed up with strikes to face and guts. Keep him out of your perimeter with strong front kicks (but snap those fuckers back or you'll get caught). Good motivation just pick up the tempo.

    This is the one piece of advice I disagre with. I would reccomend stepping straight down with the kicks more and delivering boxing combinations, at the very least if they're deflected but make contact.
