it's really cool ;)
can you smooth your motion more? I don't know if maya has curve editor for motions..

Yeah he looks kinda stiff, really the motion is he takes a step and swings his back leg through following with his front leg almost instantly. The weight shift from the back leg throwing forward generates the momentum to follow with the second leg. If you want good photo reference look up Sifu Kisu on youtube. He did all the martial arts choreography for things like Avatar among others and he really moves the right way. Not the most showy way but the right way to invoke power out of these moves.
I was getting a feeling maybe the video playback on vimeo is a little jerky, so please download this and see.
If this also dosent look smooth ... then i think i will have to relook my animation graphs.
omid3098 - yes my friend, maya has a graph editor. Thats what i have been working on the past few days !!
Thanks for your comments guys !!
