when throwing more than one kick from the same side, keep all of your weight on your front leg, your rear foot should be almost on your toes (to emphasise that there's no weight on your back leg), then throw the kick and instead of returning to your stance after landing the kick, let your rear leg sit maybe 4-5cms further back than normal and then throw the kick, you'll notice you don't have to reset and it's much faster.

you should practise your right teep more aswell, it's good to throw the teep than as your right leg hits the ground you throw the left kick.

i'm not a huge fan of the superman punch and spinning back fist is illegal in Muay Thai, you can only hit someone with the knuckle area of your glove.
what is a right teep? also, how do i become more flexible? thanks a lot man you've helped so much.
