Sparring Muay Thai, please critique (video)


I've been training muay thai for a few months and thought it would be a good idea to get some sparring footage. I was pretty tired when this was filmed as I had gone about 4 tough rounds previously with another opponent.

I have no experience with combat sports so I'm about as newb as they come. Regardless, I'm addicted and I just want to get better, the more punishment I take the more it motivates me to come back and take some more.

What is your overall impression, what do I need to improve on, what advice can you give, etc? Don't hold back, hate on me if you want, if I suck I need to know.

I'm the bigger dude btw

i only watched the first minute and a half, but from that i can say you need to loosen up, you seem very tight in your fighting...also as a taller guy, do not let the smaller man overrun you, try utilizing a front push kick and see how it works for you, as a shorter dude its constantly keeping me from rushing the big guy and beating him up, speaking of being rushed, you seem very passive, counterstriking is good, but when thrown at you simply freeze up and try not to die, that being said you definitely look better than some of the newbies i've seen, ufta.
