Have you tried using hand wraps when you are punching? How thick are your wrists? I'd go to your local Doctor to check if you have any problems with your wrist and shin bones. Have you had previous problems with injuries on your shin, and wrist? I'm sure it will need medical attention.

As for your instep hurting when you are kicking, the only thing I can think of to reccomend would be shinpads. Again, I'd check this problem out with your doctor to see if there is anything wrong with it.

Hope this helped, and good luck healing the pain.

Punching yes, they arent used to take that force. Make sure to use wraps and 10oz+ gloves, aim for 16s imo.

Kick light and work up to it, your legs just arent used to the force, it'll be better in a few months. As with anything if it hurts enough to make you wonder if something is wrong, it is and you should stop kicking.

It could be a number of things Im pretty sure its due to improper technique. What I beleive is happening is your wrist is buckeling when you hit. Do you feel your wrists bend when you hit the bag? Bend forward or back, if so thats whats causing your pain and its because your not keeping your hand streight. I would do some mirror training and make correct my form a lot more if this is the case.

Also when you round house kick dont kick with the shin, you should kick with either the ball of the foot (not as common more for tma guys) or with the shin. You kick with the shin not the instep. If you blast to hard with the instep you will hurt yourself.

I would address all of these issues with your instructor and he can help you out by showing you the accurate ways of doing these things and point out what your doing wrong.

Yeah my wrist does bend when I punch so that must be the problem but as for my kick I guess I was just doing my roundhouse wrong, when I do hit with my shin I get a good amount of power from it and I get less with my instep. If you have any tips for better punching technique let me know. Thanks

The best way to learn is lightly punching a wall. REALLY LIGHT. Its just to teach form. When you strike you want to strike with only your top two knuckles. The knuckle attached to your middle and pointer finger are the knuckles that touch when you punch and are the only ones that should touch.

Also you want to have a slight twist downward when you punch. Like if you have a knife in your hand and keep the punch streight and dont twist till you touch the bag. You twist and tighten your fist BOTH at the moment im impact. You have to keep in mind that the twist is for penetration and you dont need to penetrate till you actually make contact.

Your key issue is hand placement. Your wrist is bending because your not positioning your hand and knuckles the way they should be positioned.

yeah i would check with your trainer first than your doctor... its wise to ask trainer first cause you could be executing the strike wrong.. if nothing wrong with technique just go to doctor
