I agree. Many, maybe most, shots had nice follow through. He seemed to be striking most shots pretty cleanly, but it's just that something about his technique doesn't seem quite optimal to me. I'm not skilled or knowledgeable enough to articulate what that is. And, of course, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe it's just a matter of taste or style.

The only thing I'm sure about is that the OP should make the next batch of vids with a better camera perspective, either from in front or behind, and about head height or a little higher if possible.
