Roundhouse

I was puzzled a few days ago. I was working on the thai roundhouse and I found that if I rolled my hips further I guess, that I was striking higher on my shin-bone.

The thing that baffled me was when I did this a few times then increased my power to as hard as I could from a dead-hang the bag stood still.

I have read before about some sort of shock and I found the reference again:

( But keep in mind the key is not to swing or move the bag a whole lot you want I to shake in placc and let the force resonate through. When you can do this and itsused on a person it supposed to create a hydrostatic shock wave though out there tissues.)

Would this only bear true when you are talking about a hand-strike or any form of strike?

I know when I strike with the mid-shin I see my bag fly around from the kicks. Is either good/bad?

Does anyone have any advice on this topic?

When you turn your hip correctly you're "opening" your hip and thereby get more reach, that's why you hit with a higher part of your shinbone. So with this different reach, you want to adjust the distance with your footwork.

You don't want to move your target (unless you want to create distance) as that's a waste of energy. You want the energy of your strike to be transformed into deformation energy in the target, because that's what inflicts damage.

This pretty much covers it. The bag moving when you kick it should be the result of the mass of the bag unable deform any further and the kinetic energy translates to motion through the chain.
