    I never said I was I have used lighter bags before and they are simply too easy I dont have anyone to hold it still and stopping every five seconds to stop the bag from swinging gets anoying

    Part of the reason for a hanging bag is the fact that it moves around. Move around the bag and direct it with your attacks, don't grab the bag and stop it. Have someone who knows how to use a bag properly to show you how to work a heavy bag.

    The hanging bag is made to swing around, because you are going to be hitting a moving opponent.

    Yes, it's Muay Thai.

    (The OP might note that none of the Thais in the video are kicking anywhere near 250lbs bags, and they seem to be doing alright. If it's good enough for Buakaw and Anuwat, it's good enough for you).

    Also note the thai fighters are all doing one kick (roundhouse) I do all my kicks when I do bag work I do back kicks which generate much greater power for these kicks in particular I need a heavier bag.
