PRACTICE Foo'! what ma's do you do? if you have a heavy bag go to town on it! focus on getting your hips moving on the kick and try to kick through the bag. Just hitting the bag has worked greatly for speed and power for me, plus work this exercise for tons of punching and kicking power!

You could try putting on small ankle weights and kicking the bag and gradually move up in weight. But not too heavy you dont want to mess up your leg. This should help with yout speed. And running stairs (even know it sucks) should help with your power.

NO! i don't think ankle weights are good, they tear your ligaments.....don't try it.....or do some research....

Other than what Mr. T has to say...

Get a hold of a Ripcord and start drilling. Hell, you can use a pair of these and strart drilling sprawls too.

You could also use ankle weights, but if you do I wouldn't suggest anything too extreme of a weight when you start drilling or shadowboxing. Too much weight can result in connective tissue injury over time if there is no resistance at the end of the strike. When that happens, the only thing that is keeping your limb from seperating itself from your body is its own connective tissues. You can be a little more liberal if your wearing the ankle weights while hitting a heavy bag, but doing so will most likely promote a gain in muscle mass in your legs. This could slow you down (in fact, it probably will until you train enough to get used to it), and if you are trying to keep within a certain weight losing muscle mass is a lot harder than losing water; so keep that in mind.

That's great advice, just blast some music and do rep after rep on the heavybag, concentrate on turning over the hip and as soon as your foot hits the floor throw another kick and just keep doing the same until your leg is numb. Then swith it up and work the other leg, also in between a certain amount of reps change up the kick, for example start off with a Roundhouse for maybe 25 reps, then switch to side sicks for 25, then front kicks for 25, then repeat cycle. This has done wonders for me and alot of my students.

No, I studied a little Muy Thai, but my main training has been in:
Tae Kwon Do
Combat Hapkido
KickBoxing
Wrestling / Grappling / Submissions ( a little bit of BJJ )
