OK, I finally saw it. Very nice work, with Nice rhythm and speed. I would suggest you keep the elbows up when doing linking, particularly the Side Double Punching (SDP) Sequence starting at 46 seconds. Notice how your Right fist leads the Reverse Double Punch (RDP), then comes to the front and should go out to the side. But you really drop you right Elbow to your waist, then you drop the left, and then try to fling your fists into the Side of the bag for the SDP with both elbows low, like a windshield wiper. You missed almost every time. Your low elbow position will make your fists travel in an "arc" upward and downward, making it very difficult to maintain a consistent contact point on either side of the bag. I suggest you keep the elbows up during the entire sequence, which will keep your fists on a much more level plane to go straight into the bag, rather than arc up and down. The secret is learning to pass a fist from Front-to-back-to-Front, and then out to the side while keeping the elbow up close to the same position for the whole thing. In the RDP, your lead fist angles out to the side while the second fist connects in the RDP.

You can do it!
