My StandUp Video

Today I videoed me hitting my bag. After watching it, I've noticed I often drop my hands when I get a little gassed. I have no gym experience and all my fighting knowledge is just from watching fights on TV or online and trying it myself. Any help/criticism is appreciated.

Good speed and power. Like you said, just try to keep your hands up when not striking!

It seems you have a tendency to throw a jab and just keep your hand out there excessively long. It would also look like you don't have much balance when kicking.You have good power and speed, so a good base you could say, but it shows you train off the internet rather than something in person. You should go to a gym.

Keep your right hand on your jaw! It spends more time away than it does on. Also, your bag may not permit it but I'd suggest practising low kicks for a while and gradually working your way higher with increased flexability and technique. No offense, but your kick looks kind of useless; you need to get into the habbit or turning your hip over and screwing your standing legs toes into the ground. I'd also suggest spending more time on throwing single, straight shots. You should only be adding in combos when you are a proficiant enough striker and you'd probably only benefit early on from straight shots like jab/cross.

Throwing loads and loads of fast punches may be all well and good for conditioning, but can you imagine doing it in a street fight? You wanna be picking the guy appart as he throws haymakers at you. And in a sanctioned fight like boxing/kickboxin/mma, your oponent would be the guy picking you appart.

Just practise throwing a jab (keeping your right hand up and elbow tight into your body, turning your left fist over as you do, keeping your chin tucked behind your left shouler. Imagine someone throwing a right hook to your jaw while you're jabbing. If you're game isn't tight, it's nighty night. Bring your jab hand back to cover as quickly as you threw it, cos you'll have to beat someone's counter to your face. Also, throw your punches straight from where they are in your guard. You don't wanna drop your hands at all before- it'll give the game away. Remember to push in for your jab with your legs and then back out to disengage.

Then practise throwing a cross in the same manner, except getting a quarter-turn of your hip instead of the push in/out.

That's enough for now, I don't want to bore anyone.

Edit: oh yeah, get some better music.

I had the same feeling.

I'd say you have good power, but that bag looks a tad light. You leave yourself open alot. Someone with good reach or movement would clock you repeatedly. Also, work on your movement and use your hips more.

The kicks are sort of sloppy too, but all in all, you're not THAT bad, just hit up a gym if you're already not, and most importantly, change the music.

Its time to get a heavier bag.
