    Your power and speed are phenomenal. You are a legend waiting to happen. Just hook up with your local MMA promoter and see if they can get you on a card real soon. It would be such a waste training real technique when you could so easily blow through your weight class in amatuer MMA without it.

    There. Is that what you wanted to hear?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt5uJsQff8Q
    I only saw one kick that was acceptable amongst those kicks.

    some pointers: stop thinking you're awesome, don't pretend you don't think that, i can see it with the quasi 'routined handpulling'/ adjusting the guard and the quasi nonchalant approach in your movement.

    sorry if thats a bit harsh but wake up.

    stop doing those lower stances, its not really helpfull.

    your hands (guard): one hand should ALWAYS be at your face, you can drop one when doing lowkick or roundhouse ofcourse.

    personally im nota big fan of big movements, i would make the kicks smaller.
    pretend you're standing in a really narrow alley way with walls right niext to each side of you.
    when you kick make sure that your legs dont touch the walls.

    also make up your mind what you are practising: proper bagwork or really fine tuning kicks?
    fine tuning kicks: drop the fucking stand switching, it's of no use.

    keep relaxed, work with your hips, english isnt my first language but ill attempt to explain properly: when you throw a kick it better have a lose whipping power, be totally relaxed, then like a whip explode from the hip, keeping the trajectory of the fully relaxed leg tight.
    your kicks are to slow.
    dont worry about power, worry first on how quick your leg will hit target and that you are relaxed, your power will increase significantly when you understand that.
    dont understand with your brain, understand by doing it 500 times each leg.

    by doing it 500 times you'll be so damn tired halfway you cant even tense the leg anymore and the relaxed sgtate should kick in automatically.
    mind you, you can still **** up at the angle.

    like said before by people like Omega, Moose and Kidspatula: hip turning (' look over your own ass'), get a proper bag, and most important of all, get proper instruction.
    and also: dont kick at the bag, kick THROUGH it.
    i believe i saw you sort off pulling the leg back/holding it in a bit.
    step over the centerline with your standing foot and then kick the **** out of it.
    yes it hurts, suck it up.

    I'll be looking forward to see an improved video, good luck!

    Who moved this here? This thread sucks and the OP is too hard headed to even be allowed to ask questions.

    To add something helpful:
    For everyone reading including the OP; if you can use one of the wavemasters with the small tops comfortably then UR DOIN IT RONG! If you are kicking hard and with any penetration you will crush the padding on one of those in under a half hour and start bruising your shin on the hard plastic core.

    im assuming by wavemaster you mean that sad excuse for a heavy bag on that spring kinda thingy in the video right?

    they arent good at all train with.
    i broke one one time, the base was filled with water.
    no idea how heavy it was.
    but they tend to be a bit weak, and also the soft part at the top shoots up during kicks.
    come to think of it, where is that thing good for anyways?

    When I saw the post and it said 250 lb bag, I thought of a huge friggin' bag hung off a beam, a la Bruce Lee's old ginormous bag.

    I'm sure this has been said, but just go to a muay thai or MMA school and have them critique your kicks as you do them. Don't read books or post. Mindless repitition is not necessarily the best.

    I remember an old TKD guy I trained with that could keep a regular 80 lb bag almost horizontal moving around and doing different kicks. He had 3 minute round 5-10 round bag routines he'd do 3x per week so had good legs. You could probably use a thai banana bag and make it heavier putting weights in the bottom. If you do a lot of rounds on a bag regularly you'll tear it up pretty quickly anyway, so why spend $$$$.

    On your kicks, again don't step straight to the bag, step open at 45 degrees with your heel open to start your hip momentum. That will turn your hips over more and help you kick slightly down.
