Critique my roundhouse.
Critique my roundhouse.
I originally had more video of me doing some bagwork training and was going to title this thread, "CRITIQUE MY STRIKING ON TOTALLY COMPLIANT TARGETS!" but my memory card fudged and I lost some sectors. :\ Anyway.
Critique my roundhouse!

Keep your hand on your chin or you will be countered with a straight right and your asian mophead put on the ground.

When you kick with your left you dont pivot your right leg as much, right kick is pretty solid.
and keep your hands up cutey pie, one way to drill that is have you kick only 1 pad while your partner tries to smack your head with the other pad. tough love pumpkin.
Also, when using the right kick, step forward more, you started with the shin and by the 3rd kick it looked like you are kicking with your foot. probably same problem with your left but i couldnt see where the kick landed.

Your hands are kind of a mess. Your lead hand needs to come across your face and your right need to move in a comact organized path, be it linear, circular or semi-circular. Dont just flail it. You are getting decent power, but it seems to be coming from the wrong source. If the hip is not the center of power generation, you should adjust your delivery.
Unless you can set it up very well, or deliver significantly faster, you're going to get that kick caught, and you're going to eat an overhand as a result. Keep that hand across your face.

Your knees should be pointed out more when you throw your kicks. Right now you're just taking a step forward, what you want to do is step out an angle with your knee and foot pointed outward in the direction of your kick. This gives your legs room and opens your hips up. Also, you seem to largely be kicking with the force of your leg. Try keeping your leg and totally loose and relaxed and just let it swing with the turning of your hips. Don't "try" to kick so hard, if you relax and just let your leg fly with the explosive rotation of your hips there won't be as much muscular resistance in swinging your leg around.
Another thing is that you might want to try kicking with the ball of your foot directly beneath you. This allows you to swing more freely around on the ball of your foot in a more balanced manner without the resistance of your leg/foot interfering with the motion of the kick.
I think the key to a hard, fast kick is staying totally loose with the least amount of resistance interfering with the swinging of your leg as possible.Ranked #9 internationally at 118lbs by WIKBA http://www.womenkickboxing.com/wikba...rch%202009.htm

I'm going to echo war wheel and also your left hip in particular isn't rollling over as much as it needs too
It's a little silly, but I actually learned to keep my hands up while twisting my hips by pretending I was pulling on a rope or twisting a steering wheel.
