If your going to practice your kicks using the instep of your foot then dont use a heavy bag, use something with much more give that you can kick through.

Heavy bags are best for ocnditioning the shins with MT style kicks... Which i personally prefer because they are MUCH more powerful and not a lot slower, plus your less likely to injure your leg or foot. Just look up Buakaw on Youtube.

Also, i've seen tae kwon do style kicks work in tae kwon do tournies, but never in MMA...

If you are getting hurt during the kick, it could be because you are executing the kick wrong, so you might want to have your coach watch you more carefully. It is also possible you are kicking a lot harder then you are conditioned to kick. If thats the case you are going to just have to work your way up.

Don't kick a heavy bag with anything other than your shin. You're going to do terrible damage to your ankle joint like that.
