Flexibillity (High Kicks) and speed

hi. i am new to this forum... im in the mma 6 months.. everything is going great but i have problem with my flexibillity.. every time when i try to high kick my oponnent i just cant.. no matter how much i am trying i cant do high kick in the face.. its just to high for me.. ANYONE CAN EXPLAIN TOME HOW CAN I GET A BETTER FLEXIBILLITY? thank you very much.

thats one.. now for the second problem.. when i am facing heavy fighters its easy for me to dodge their Jabs and kicks because i am just heavy like them. but when i am facing lightweight people i just cant dodge their jabs and kick because its too fast for me... how can i get faster in order to face lightweight people? thank you very much.
and sorry about the bad english..

I've written this in a similar thread:

"For kicks, do kicks. First have a GOOD warm up to prevent injury. Kick at a heavy bag or for this occasion maybe even better a BOB. Kick relaxed without force and start at a level at which you are really comfortable with (might even be at a low kick level). Let your body accustom to the motion. Do like 25 kicks on each side, do another 25 on each side slow (meaning SLOW), then go 2" higher, same procedure. Go as high as you feel comfortable, you shouldn't feel pain. Don't force yourself to go higher, as there is risk of injury which would draw you back.

After that, do PNF-type stretching for the splits. Keep your legs warm afterwards, either by movement or outer heat (bath, sauna)

Do that every day (start always comfortable low to prevent strain trauma) and you should be able to deliver head kicks after a month."

As for the speed. Do plyometric strength exercises. Reduce body fat, as it's mass you have to move without it helping you to move it (like muscle mass). Do lots of dodging drills to establish more synaptic connections in your brain to process the movements.

that's helpful. I'm gonna try the flexibility thing out. my left foot is a lot slower and weaker when it comes to kicks. Thanks
