1. get into the habit of keeping your hands up, I noticed your dropping em when you punch or kick/knee.

2. your jabs need help, jabs are quick and crisp, fast in and out, jab and then bring it back for defense.

3. Ok, you get a lot of power from twisting into your punches. With socks on its hard to use your power when your slipping and you don't have a firm base.

4. bob and weave, you need head movement. don't be afraid to work your way around the bag as you do this.

5. you need to work on your combinations and timing.

6. Work on your hand speed.

also if you can push off your feet, pivot your hips you can get a lot more power from your hands.

and not bad, you prob have some good power

First thing all say is keep your hands up at all times, you throw a kick, protect your head, you throw a right hand, the left hand better protect your head. Most important thing to start off with.

I dont feel like writing a book though, so ill just say, you need to seek out coaching from someone who knows thai, or western boxing.

on an up swing, its good that your doing it, and its cool that you recorded it and looked for advice.

I think you should keep you chin closer to your shoulder, doesnt look like you are keeping your chin closer to your shoulder when you punch.

Looks like you aren't following through to much at all with your punches.

I come from the train of thought that you don't drop you harns when you kick, so I think that is a bit of a problem. And your shoulders flinch before your kick, which is usually a good tell that you are going to kick.

I think you should just practice the proper form in the air slowly over and over again. That will help clean up your form.

I hate it when someone trains 2 weeks and says Iam a muay thai fighter.

You look good for just being started. Cardio better than I thought it would be with oyur outer appearance.

I'm not going to be harsh with you, because you clearly have a sense of humor judging from the video description, though I agree that it's not really fair to the real muay thai fighters to call yourself a "Muay thai fighter" after two weeks of training.

Posture

Your posture is problematic because it's going to get your legs smashed into little tiny pieces against someone who has good leg kicks. While most beginning fighters don't, you should be aware that it's something you should fix, because it will increase your mobility and your technical skill alot.

Don't lock your front leg. It feels like it gives you balance, it really just makes you stiff and gets that leg knocked around until you can't stand up anymore.

Stand over your feet, not leaned back. This is a by-product of you putting that leg forward and locking it out. Your feet should be underneath your shoulders.

Shrug your shoulders forward. It's a mistake alot of guys make, and it's one of the things that, while I'm not a standup guy, has greatly improved my standup and has taken my boxing up a notch.

Hands

Bring them back to your face, and keep them up when you kick. It's a common mistake, but it gets alot of guys knocked out.

Punches

Throw your punches off of the hip. You throw those big hooks as arm punches, and even your straight shots seem to come from the arms, not the hips.

Kicks/Knees

This make take some time for you to develop some balance and to get a little light on your feet, which will come with time, but throw the kicks off of your hips too. That really needs to happen if you expect to do damage.

Hope that was helpful.

Imo (and this isn't an insult) but you need to lose weight. You want be to quicker then lots of roadwork. You're heavy handed but you telegraph every punch and leave yourself opened bigtime for a left hook under the chin.

You look strong enough, maybe weights isn't what you need to be doing as more muscle will slow you down and makes you gas quicker. Stay on the balls of your feel more and concentrate a little more on defence, you keep your head tucked into you chin quite well, just keep the hands up and snap the punches out instead of throwing from the hip, a good striker will break your spirit in a bout if he sees this weakness.
