    Main thing I notice is you need to keep the weight on your back foot when you punch. You're leaning forward in combinations and that will leave you off balance and diminish your power.

    1- Arm punches.
    2-You're hitting too low!! TOO LOW! Hit shoulder height.
    3-Improve footwork, your legs get crossed alot of times.
    4-Your hands go down when you punch.
    5-The 1-2 seem unfunctional, it is like you are doing what you have been told to do without knowing why. Put some more hips into the 2 and...snap it man, SNAPP ITTT.
    6-Give me some information? Height, Weight, Reach, Pro/Amateur, etc.

    That is partially ok unless his head goes over his lead leg, same goes for weight on the back, if his head goes over the rear leg, his unbalanced.

    Balance can't be determined strictly by where his head is placed. He brings his front foot forward when he throws combinations, and he brings his head forward, which shifts the weight forward. I prefer a 40/60 balance with more on the back foot since I'm a backwords moving fighter. However, I know you can be a very successful forward moving fighter with primary weight placed on the back foot also.

    Well, Most of my weight is on the front foot *peekaboo stance* gives me more stability than being 50/50 or 40/60 on back. So I just gave out my personal opinion :p You get used to something after doing it alot of times and getting used to it tho.

    6 foot with decent long arms, sounds like an out-fighter to me. Drop the weight on front leg idea, you need to be floating like a butterfly and stinging like bee. always keep jabbing and jabbing and jabbing.

    Watch some of my videos on youtube *Name= FlowFollower* usually infighting and improving. Watch that, and try NOT to mimic it :p you could be an infighter, but you need to increase your weight DECENTLY to the point that the people you compete with are much taller than you with reach advantage :p

    I'd advise against trying to bouncing around with your footworks at this stage of your training. The best footworks are the one that is simple and functional that helps you keep the optimal distance/attack angle between you and your opponent, while provide balance and power to your punch. Bouncing around may LOOKED good, but if you don't know what you are doing then you are needlessly wasting your energy. Look at Joe Louis' footworks.



    His footworks are simple, and may consider sluggish by today's standard, but the guy have extremely good balance, good attack angle and hit like a truck.

    As for the weight distribution, people around here have more of a rear weight bias, and i myself fight off my backfoot so i will advise you so, because it provide stability, that plus learning how to shift weight properly will provide power and reach advantages to your punches.
