why dont you use or develop your left leg too? your left leg will find where they keep the peanut butter .
kick looks real good , only critique i can give besides the left leg is that you are practicing your kick too high on your opponent , at that height its all arms and elbows , focus on the torso below the elbow and aim for kidneys / spleen , if you practice that height you will fight kicking at that height , which sometimes isnt a bad idea to soften arms up .
You're a little off balance from time to time. You're kicking leg is also a little too stiff and it's causing you to under rotate your hips and to lean back too far. Let me give you a visual representation of what I'm talking about:
See how as her leg straightens from the kick (watch closely!) how there's a bend AT the hip? Make sure to look very closely. That's what you're doing with your kick. Your kicking leg is so straight that you're literally swinging it and that's causing you to literally pull your hip back several times in the video.
Above is another one. See how her leg is all straight and her bend is at the hip, you should be able to see her entire booty if she was leading with her hip. To shame. Shame on Olivia Munn.
Also, your pad holder is holding the pads incorrectly. He should be holding them right at his torso, against his body with a slightly downward angle. He should be facing you like you're fighting each other--both is a fighting stance angle. That way the pads are angled both vertically and horizontally at a roughly 45* angle. Be careful that the pad holder doesn't hold them completely sideways to you (a common mistake) and they shouldn't be pointed completely down (another common mistake).
So for reference...I went in the garage right quick to film a couple kicks for reference of how I throw the Tad Te...note the hips rotating to lead the kick, not just swinging the leg up AT the hip. Also note that I'm balanced after the kick. That's key. You want to always be in control and balanced. Also note the bend in the kicking leg.

SAAMG hit the nail on the head. You need to lead with your hips a lot more and let your leg have a little bend on impact. I was taught to "lead with the knee" by this I mean, by the time your shin hits your target, your hips should already be over and your knee past the target. This will help your power tremendously and really let you dig your shin in to the target.
Op, you need to turn your hips more your kicks are very weak because they carry no power behind them.
This is incredible to me.
Granted, I make no claims to being an expert on 'fight theory' or all the persnickety little ways that have been anointed as 'theoretically optimal'- I generally fight stupid and just brawl- but I have fought other human beings quite a few times now, have smashed in faces, had my face smashed in, had my head kicked damn near clear off my neck, one time I ate so many leg kicks that the next day I couldn't even walk and had to stay in bed.
It amazes me that you characterize his kicks as 'not having power'. If someone in my weight class kicked me like that, it would probably break my leg in two. Hasn't he applied those very same kicks in very real fights with fantastic success?
They look like they have a shitload of power to me. I'd cut off the tip of my pinky finger to kick like Lucas does.
