your punches are so wild! i didn't see man jabs just a lot of wild throw punches hitting the bag. they had a lot of power behind them but remember in a fight you're not going to throw all haymakers or you will punch yourself out. Also, i don't know if you had your wrists taped underneath those gloves but try that. you can hurt your wrists while doing that kinda stuff if you don't tape up. I couldn't see your feet so i don't know how to tell you about those. i just do a nice boxing stance with my left foot forward and right back.. right foot the heel is off the ground and the direction you step i lead with that foot and slide the other. (move forward left step right slide, move backward right step left slide, move to the right right step left slide and you can get the left:P) drop you chin and lift your shoulders more. I didn't see many kicks, i have the same problem, when i'm going on the bag i don't throw many kicks and i have been trying to break that but it's hard. Also, quit swinging your head. i would love to fight somebody who did that they'd swing their head right into my punch bringing more force behind the punch. You have a lot of power but control it. To practice keeping your chin down for about a week of bag training put a towel under your chin and hold it there. it will help a lot. also, this is off topic but you weight 144?? you looked like you weighed more then that to me lol. Sorry for the lack of structure of my post and stuff like that but i hope you can take some to heart. good luck whenever you fight and remember KEEP YOUR CHIN DOWN AND SHOULDERS UP!!!!

Hands up, chin down. Throw more combinations. Don't worry about getting flamed, your not on sherdog.

Here's one that I don't think was said. BREATHE... I think I heard you grunt while throwing a couple of punches. MAke sure to exhale while punching sp that you don't gas yourself out.

You have some power but overall lack technique like others are saying. Your hooks should be thrown more with your hips and less with your arms. If you learn to utilize your hips in your punches you will see a significant difference in power. Also use your foot as a pivot when you're using your hips. It helps with rotation. Keep your balance.

When you kick make sure to block with your opposing hand or else you will get caught with a straight right lol.

Turn your hips more when throwing the kick and kick THROUGH the bag. Let your leg swing like a bat.

Throw elbows in the mix and work longer combos. Jab, cross, hook, cross, switch kick or right kick

Wrap your wrists or you will end up hurting them =)

Keep practicing and get some coaching! It's fun!
