I used to do the same with my left hand... my trainer taped my left hand to my head till I got it right haha... good job bro!
awwww fawk skoobz you never told me you trained!? That's fawkin awesome!
that was/is a real bad habit of mine. If that guy was a pro he probably woulda countered and dropped me easy baha! my trainers didn't do as good enough of job helping me with that... but I should know better.

Take it or leave it. Your right hand drops with every move you make. Hands up. You kick, right drops. You swing with the left hand, right hand drops. Protect the face/head at all times. Controlled jabs are critical. You can regulate the tempo of the fight, as well as distance, with your jab. Lastly, aggression and tempo. The first 7 minutes, it seemed as though your opponent set the tempo. I understand it was edited, so I am sure we missed a lot of what really happened. But never, if possible let your opponent set the pace. Like I said, take it or leave it. I've been teaching TKD (southern style), Judo, and American Boxing since 1998. I am not the greatest and definitely too old to get back in the ring, but, I still see potential when I look at it. If you are not still training, you need to start back up. You have a bright future... and yes, I love me some Asian girls too! Hawaii is packed full of them!
I'm used to criticism so it's fine. Dropping my hands sounds like one of my more obvious flaws. I barely performed any jabs either. I could make excuses all day of why my hands dropped or didn't jab enough saying I was nervous, tentative etc etc.... but the way I see it is if I had trained more properly those are things that would be automatic even if I was nervous.
He did set the tempo, and I let him set the tempo. Why? Because I was scared. Now that's an excuse.. I should've pushed more. You can see I came out with a few flurries and some of them were successful, so I shoulda tried some more.
Thanks for the critique. The last time I hit pads are likely a year ago. But right now, I'm not sure if I'm going to be headed back to that lifestyle..
