Question Help Beginner learn basics please!

Please help me. I love to use my punching bag and I want to box. I was told I am doing everything wrong.

I am going to post some videos of me boxing and then pics of my stances and you tell me if it's right or wrong. Please give me constructive criticism, nothing harsh because I am very sensitive with low self esteem.

Basics:
1. Keep chin down
2. Keep fists next to your face for protection
3. Keep elbows in
4. Put left foot forward turned 45* at 11 o'clock
5. Put right foot straight out at 12 o'clock
6. Keep wrists straight
7. Keep head low
8. Move side to side

My pics of stance: is it correct?

someone told me to keep my right hand covering my cheek and my left fist in front of my chin and to lift heel of my right foot and not to lean into the punches.

I think I have it down pat now. Later on I'll make a video showing me doing the basic form/stance and stuff properly.

Join a gym? You will learn much more there than you will from watching vids or asking people on forums.

Check out this thread though, loads of good instructional vids - http://www.mmaforum.com/mma-multimed...re-videos.html - good luck.

Edit: from watching your vids I noticed you were kicking with your feet, not your shins and dropping your hands a lot.

I'm not trying to be a dick or anything but here's my advice.

Stop what you are doing right now. Do not practice anymore kicks or punches on the heavy bag.

Your technique is all wrong and you're only teaching yourself bad technique that will be very hard to change if you actually do start to train.

Your kicking with your foot and not your shin. You'll break your foot doing that in a real fight. You also aren't snapping your punches or your kicks and your combos are bad.

If you're serious about training then stop what you are doing and go to an actual gym so you can learn proper technique because right now it'll take awhile for them to unteach what you taught yourself and for your to learn it the right way.
