Yo man, i gta say thas PRETTY DAMN GOOD for 2 months 8)
U already had basic waves, hits, glides, and tuts~
I would work on more variations of waves, and also work on ur mid section more (something i need work on too) and also i would work on having logic in ur waves. Logic meaning make sure the illusion of the wave does not get lost. For example when u wave from arms to ur chest, then it goes half way down ur body and the wave is gone, yet u start more waves from ur arms again. I would reccomend (for now until u get the foundation stronger) to keep the wave from start to end, so ppl can follow ur illusion. They say "tell a story with your movements" 8)
Ur glides, looked outa control at points, i would work on ur balance and making ur footwork smoother~
and ur basic tuts were good, work on making ur angles more solid and clear, pose a bit longer at points~
thas all i can think of now, u got a great start homie, keep it goin 8)

Nice clip. You have improved. The logic of your illusional movements (particularly your body waves) is more obvious and you don't drop the waves as much...
I'm no expert, but I think that it might help you also to practice just completing and stopping your movements. For example, when you do that little saccin' shuffle from side to side, move your legs, stop, move your upper body, stop, repeat. But make sure you stop each movement when you complete it. That will help you be cleaner and more funky.
Also, I know what you're talking about with the "I try to hit really hard and get tired fast" thing--same for me. One piece of advice one of my crewmates gave me was "only hit when the music tells you to hit"--when it's not a hitting part of the music, just stop your motion and it'll often give it the same effect as hitting. Plus a good stop will make a good contrast with your hit when you do hit.
Anyway, just some advice... Keep up the good work!
