Just drill yourself on it. I'm not even a striker, but I do an hour a day on striking. I usually spend about 20 minutes practicing going from a standard boxing stance to throwing a head/body kick, but they're still mediocre.

My only real advice:

PRACTICE!

you hit the heavy bag, ironman?

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

Yeah, mostly good for aggression release, but the cardio vascular conditioning that can be developed by just teeing off and/or practicing some basic movement is good too.

The only real kicks that I use are leg-kicks, though. That comes from being short, not having very long legs. I use them to stiffen up an opponent for the takedown, so it's mostly setup work.

one other thing you can do is pick a kick and kick a heavy bag once, then twice, then three all the way up to 10 or 15 whatever you feel comfortable.. it helps alot for kicks and cardio

Hitting the bag is good, but MAKE SURE TO WATCH YOUR FORM. A lot of times people pummel the bag, and they don't pay attention to their form. Their hands are low and their chin is sticking out. If you get used to doing this, it's hard to fix.

You could probably improvise them, but the length would end up being too cumbersome. You could get some resistance bands for that, the ones that they use specifically for punch training would be something like this: Ringside's Aerobic Shadow Boxer. In either case you are probably looking at $10 to $15, and you can find stuff like that in your local WalMart.

You can use a pair of ripcords for Sprawling drills. That I have seen before.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
