nice, man. You look like you are improving a bit. don't worry about trying to kick high until your technique is better, just keep practising low kicks and body kicks. practise the wide forward step (kinda like a diagonal direction) with your right foot and throw the left leg into it. You can step forward with your left and throw a right kick better aswell.

It doesn't look like your guard is strong at all, if we were wearing gloves and I hit your glove, you would basically punch your own face. Just focus on keeping your arms strong.

thanks a lot man. you are right my guard in those videos was basically non-existent. is there anything im doing blatantly wrong in these videos with my kicks? am i hitting with the right part of my shin? my coach always keeps stressing me to "stay tall" when im kicking and to not be ashamed of my height. he also explains that the kick is like a baseball bat. was i high enough on my toes when throwing the kicks? thanks a lot man im having tons of fun and now my shins don't hurt when i hit the bag haha

Kru Bresko ftw! Now teach em some combos. Lets start with my favorite.

1,2 then superman, chain into spinning back fist, and finish with left high kick. I also add in a left side kick.

Everyone will be like...wtf!

or 4, 3, 4, 3(body shot combos) right low kick.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

you are high enough on your toes, you need to focus on keeping your right hand up while throwing the kick and even use more of a swinging motion with your left arm. like really thrust it down, it helps a lot with the turning of your hips. when you land the kick you want your leg to be straight, that's why you can't throw high kicks because you don't have the flexibility or form yet, aim low, and make sure your leg is straight when you land the kick (hence, the baseball bat analogy)

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.

a right teep for a southpaw fighter is your lead leg front push kick.
