Hi there !
I am a 15 year old pace bowler of height 5ft 4 inches. I bowl pretty quick. But the problem is that I have a mixed action and it puts a lot of stress on me.
  I have remodeled my action to front one but just the last thing I want is to brace the front leg. I just unintentionally do it. (Not under my control). How do I BRACE the front leg?

With a front-on action it is more complex. The following resource should help you:
