Thanks for all of the replies. Your criticism encourages me more than your encouragements.

I have a good boxing gym near my house in mind to join in the summer. So when I'm champ of the world, you'll see better form.

I always advise people who tell me they can learn from videos that they're their own worst teacher, and that a qualified instructor is essential. I train solo knowing this and willing to face the consequences. I enjoy it too much to wait.

Thanks again, all.

No one mentioned: Keep your elbows against, or very near to your body, in order to protect it. When I saw the vid all I could think about was getting in there and Rocky-ing you.

to add to this excellent critique, you're tense. Loosen up man! tension = speed destruction. I could almost feel the tension in your arms, and that was through a crappy low-res video on youtube!

You have absolutely NO power in your punches, not just because of what Taison said, but because you're pulling them. I could stand there all day with you punching me like that and you wouldn't do any damage even though you're far more muscular than I am. Why? Because you're not connecting with any power. You're pulling your punches back before they even hit. It's like you're fighting a tree, and you're afraid of barking (haha) your knuckles on it. Don't punch TO the target, punch THROUGH the target.
