    It's means you have the flexibility, but not the strength to hold your leg in position. One thing we did in karate class should help you, just hold your leg up as high as you can for as long as you can before dropping it. It you can take a marker or piece or tape or post it, put a mark on a wall where you can hold you leg up at. This is your starting point, every time you lift your leg it should be at least that high and as you are able to hold it higher, move the mark higher. It will work, it will take time though.
