well i guess you want some criticism :P

you are pretty much a beginner, what means you have to work on : easying,force, your stiffness,anticipation, effects (but later) and flow, but keep on praticing and you'll see you will make advances in a couple of weeks :)

That's pretty nice :D
Did the person get smaller all of a sudden on purpose? Or was that an accident.
Just keep practicing movement, effects and easing and you will be great!

I think what you need to do is look at some of the begginer movement tutorials before doing these sorts of effects.

Specifically easing/spacing tutorials. It will help with your effects too.

You need to work on choreography a bit, as you can see all those other animations of Terkoiz and Hyun and all those people are hardly ever standing up completely straight but more in a combat stance when they are attacking and stuff. You also need to look at easing a bit more and do the bouncing ball if you haven't already. Easing is vital for good animation.

a real simple tip to start with is to not isolate body parts.

you have the character for the most part stagnant. you gotta move them legs to wield that big of a sword. get the head bobbing and leg's moving. this falls under anticipation and force, but you always want to maintain balance with your center of mass
