i think i would lean his torsoe forward, and bring his shoulders and hands up more to make him more tense, the more loose his arms arms are, and the more leaned back he is, the more casual he will look,

if he is leaned forward, he will seem more dynamic, like he is ready for action

hey vin, not lookin too bad!

like mat said, leaning him forward will help balance him alot, and you could try translating the cog forward just a tad too. Also try and get a little overlap in up/down chest rotation which will help alot in giving him some weight.

The arms seem like they change direction a little fast, try giving it a little hang time at either end to mix up the timing a bit, it will make it feel a little less robotic.

The knees look like they're overextending on contact and push, try to tweak feet/cog/hips to get rid of the knee popping.

keep it up!
