Sure, no problem, I should have been more constructive. You seem to be taking comment well, so I’ll do my best to explain what I see the problem is and how I would train to correct it. Sorry to be blunt in the first posts, but usually when you give a critique, people take it personally, rather than just seeing it as things to bear in mind when watching yourself back.
By squared up, I mean that you dont really have a back foot to front foot stance. If you stand with your feet together, side by side with the insides touching, and take a shoulder width step back with your right foot, balance your weight evenly on the balls of your feet, bend your knees an inch or two, then you are in a solid boxing stance. Fighters like Oscar De la Hoya boxed in that sort of position, weight evenly distributed between the feet, and pretty upright. I would have thought this is your best boxing stance for MMA (whether or not it needs adapting to be effective, you know much better than me). In a bid to be helpful, I have watched a few MMA fights and I personally think that stance could be made to work, although perhaps you would need to move your right foot out (away from your left, a little, say 6 inches or so). The advantage of this style is that you can move quickly, efficiently, and dictate range very effectively with your fists, if your style is to press the action, or be a busy fighter.
I’ve now seen a few MMA fights, and whilst I dont claim to be any kind of expert or have enough knowledge to make valuable judgements, it seems to me that kicks are often pretty ineffective, well telegraphed, and not thrown all that regularly. I would imagine the same holds true at lower levels. I would have thought that if you adopted a more boxing based stance, the kind suggested above, with it always in your mind that leg kicks were a possibility, it would allow you to capitalise on the more frequent situation where punches are being thrown.
I feel particularly strongly about that because, despite the fact that most people (even pros) go through their whole careers without realising it, a stance that allows you to slip to avoid punches, gives you the best possible chance of forcing your opponent off balance and into making mistakes. I would have thought this was particularly useful in MMA as if your opponent is off balance you not only have the option of striking effectively with your fist, you also have the option of an easier take down.
I’m in a bit of a rush now, but if you would like any further clarification or opinions on training for stand up striking, I would be very happy to make suggestions.
