don't even let your leg leave the ground
you are working on the hip rotation, not the kick.
you need better balance to actually throw the kick, have it miss and end up back in your stance.
crawl, walk and then run my friend


EDIT: Sorry, i forgot to stand southpaw. It doesn't matter though, you just do the same but with opposite legs.

feet shoulder width apart, keep your weight on your back leg so you don't fall over if someone pushes you, then when you do the hip rotation lean all your weight on your front leg

it can help if you step your lead leg to your right just as you throw the kick, gives you more lean, kinda how Thiago Alves throws it.

When you watch my videos, look at my stance, look how much balance I have throwing strikes. I never cross my feet and I never let my feet get too close. If you have a tree outside you should throw on a shinpad (soccer/football one if you don't have muay thai shinpads) and kick the tree so you can work your technique as you would on a bag.
