I've been practicing MT for 3 months now. But recently I've noticed that some in my class especially the more experienced MT fighters have been telling me to swing my arm forward instead of backward when I kick. Currently when I kick I send whatever leg I'm kicking with that arm goes backward which I feel gives me more power in my kick, also my opposite arm goes up to protect my face. So I feel that my face is adequately protected while I get power on my kicks. I don't want to disrespect my fellow mates who have been training longer than I have and have more experience than me, but I've seen many videos where fighters are doing the same thing that I am. My instructor has also not corrected me. I'm kind of confused.
