I've been working on my side and back kicks for awhile now, and on both of them I have a problem that I'm really struggling to overcome.
On my side kicks, I've got this annoying problem when I'm working on a heavy bag. When my kick lands, instead of "kicking", it's like I'm "pushing". Am I too close? Or is my problem that I'm not refolding fast enough, so there's no snap?
Also, on my back kicks, I've been taught that you should strike with your heel. Unfortunately, when I'm going on a heavy bag, the ball of my foot hits first! What's the cause of this, and how can I improve?
Answers to either/both of these questions would be welcomed!
