Thumbs up

If I may add.....someone said that the power comes from the hip, indeed, and from the photo it looks as though you are not "twisting" your hips into the kick therefore not using all the power you could. Not only that, by not pivoting your hips when throwing a kick, be it a roundhouse or side kick, you could possibly damage your hip sockets. After awhile of throwing improper technique you will notice your hip joints actual aren't as fluid anymore....the bones actually "grind" against each other.

Hey, but on the bright side.....if you love it, keep doin it but train with proper technique. As someone said, speed and power will come.

thats exactly what I would have said.
the power in the kicks come from the pivot your foot takes after stepping, and also the twist in your hip. it might be just me, but your form is way off too.

YouTube - cris on the bag
I'll bet all my points that after you threw this kick, you lost your balance. Am I right? First and foremost the hand thats behind your back should be extended in front of you facing the bag, and the hand that is up in the air should be tucked in and proecting your chin.

Secondly, as you throw the kick, your opposite leg should be slightly bent at the knee, and you should be pivoting your foot to the left slightly. As you kick the bag, remeber your not trying to tap it, your trying to drive through it. So when you get to the bag don't stop, follow through!!!!!

This should help you keep your balance. Remember not everybody can throw a high kick like cro cop!
