    Get higher onto the toes of your lead foot when you throw the knee, push off the ball of your foot a little bit, so that both of your insteps are similarly tucked.

    Your kicks are still lacking follow through and are going upward. Because they go up, they're going to be easy to counter if you fight someone who knows his way around a ring, and you can get some serious bruises or broken bones in your instep if you kick like that too much. The lack of follow through seems to be directly related to your long linear KF stance, when your leg starts that far back it's going to be very difficult to follow through with it. That's your call, if you want to change your stance or not.

    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    Thanks a lot I will try to adjust my stance and my follow through and I actually prefer kicking with my shins then with my insteps I know its kinda hard to see but I am trying to kick with my shin in that vid. I have a new video and I think the kicks are a little better

    Yes, as fun as this has all been: you aren't going to learn good kicking technique overnight, in your garage and via instructions on the Internet. This is something you need to take up with your trainer, and then you need to put hours and hours in the gym with him/her.

    Train at least three times a week, ask questions, watch the more experienced fighters, do lots of pad rounds with experienced trainers/pad holders and maybe even get some private lessons if possible.

    After a few months of that, post a new video.

    And we're trying to tell you that your "power and speed" don't mean **** until you have good technique.

    LOL. Speed and power comes from technique. Fix your technique or forever be stuck with weak kicks.

    So you want feedback on the speed and power of your kicks? They look slow, weak and telegraphed and leave you in a bad position everytime you throw one.
