Kicking

When I kick a heavy bag my feet hurt and I feel this shock through my nerves. Doesn't happen every time, but it happens. How can I minimize or reduce this? What part of the leg should I be hitting with exactly? The top of the foot or th elower shin/ankle?

You should be aiming to hit with your shin/ankle area.

Once the bag was swinging back when I threw a huge kick at it and I landed mostly with foot. My ankle is still recovering.

If the bag cant swing/recoil its also going to hurt you. Try to hang it

Edit: to original poster, what weight and type of bag are you using?

just go light on the bag untill you develop enough power to move it, you should connect with your shin rest them if they hurt

This also applies for head kicks?

Yes. If you don't have the flexability to land it like that, try connecting more with the instep. Always land between the ankle and knee though. Never below.

So a kick like this is completely wrong?
