[QUOTE=punchbag;1148856]Ha ha, I'm from the U.K we haven't progressed to kicking heavy bags yet, we still practice on the weekends by kicking idiots out of nightclubs. But yes it's my bad, I spoke about kicking thai pads but you are right about where the foot meets the shin bone if your kicking the heavy bag.
Overall by far the best way to improve technique is to join a Muay thai gym, you'll learn from more experienced guys and learn correct technique, and get to see how it works in sparring if you like that.[/QUOTE]

Absolutely. Plus you will get to see what kind of conditioning you really need to be in to practice MT in a gym with others. The guy in the vid kicked the bag a couple of times and walked away winded, most coaches would have told him to get back over there and kick that bag another 3 minutes lol

I would agree with some of the other posts on here that you are not rotating your hips enough. Its turned what looks like it might be a really solid roundhouse into a decently solid slap-kick.

Try working on the technique of throwing the roundhouse in slow motion before hitting the bag with them. When its done right it'll feel kind of strange but good with your hips properly aligned with your feet.

hey jcal -

I am the guy in the video and what you don't know is that I had just completed 3 - 5 minute rounds on the bag before that. If you'll notice, I was a little winded before I even started. My conditioning isnt where I want it to be, BUT its MILES better than it was when I first started

If you turn your lead foot in more when you throw the kick you'll be able to keep your balance better and throw the next kick with more power while still keeping control.

Don't drop you hands after every kick, if you do that in the ring; it would be very easy to time and counter. Keep your toes down (in-line with your leg) and work with shifting your body weight so there is power behind every kick.

Hope this helps bro.

Thats great to hear! I was trying to help but it sounds like you do 'get it' with the conditioning factor. I went from lifting weights with a little cardio in the gym to a Muay thai class and I couldnt keep up. I thought I was in great shape from working out but I was not able to keep up with the better guys in the class. I was determined and I really liked MT but the conditioning was insane. The warmups which consisted of 40 hand clap pushups, 40 situps and 40 deepknee bends then run for 5 minutes then repeat with a different variations of all those excercises 5x. Finally after that we could partner up and do drills. A lot of guys would come in real late just to miss the warmups. Anyway what im trying to say is the better your conditioning is the better your bag work will become. Sorry if you took what I said as you getting winded as a slight but it wasnt meant to be that way. I had no idea that you had allready been training befor your vid. peace
And by the way it looks like youve got pretty good power in your kicks allready
