I bought a Robert Lyons Thai boxing tape a while ago and was looking for a little more help than what he gave. I train by myself because I pay for college and can't afford to go to a dojo. I currently have a heavy bag I hit but am unsure if I am hitting it right. Vertical elbow- Now to execute this properly do you bend the legs a little then kinda shoot up like a rocket as you deliver the strike? Low lead/roundhouse kick- My friend goes to a TKD school and they told him to arch his kicks higher than the (knee) so that you come down on the nerves that are just above it and it also creates drag from your body weight going into the kick. Is this true? Where should my hands be? Which hand blocks, which do I use for support? Leg destructions- How do I execute a proper destruction? Do I use the leg the kick is aimed at? or the opposite? How do I know if I actually rotate my hips when I strike. Does anybody have any pics or websites of proper techniques being displayed.
