I'm a long time boxing coach and, like you, have created a series of videos which describe the skills of my chosen sport. Before we go any further, I have a great respect for the sport of MMA; anyone who climbs into an enclosed space with someone who wishes to do damage to them deserves all the respect in the world. Furthermore, I'm not taking a stance (no pun intended) of "Boxers know more about punching that MMA guys!", this is far too simplistic an assessment. I see this as a unique learning opportunity for myself and the users of the forum.

OK, below is a link to my description of the perfect boxing jab (forgive the brightness, the quality improves with subsequent videos!) Having looked at your video side by side with mine, there are both similarities and contradictions, it's very interesting. It would be good if either yourself or others on the forum could look at the two and we can discuss the reasons for the differences. It'll be interesting to see where we go! My sense is that it will come down to stance differences and the threat of imminent grappling or kicks...we'll see!

How to throw a boxing jab.

Cheers

Hi Fran,

Thanks for sharing your video. I've come across some of them before and they are always great!

As for my jab. I throw it the exact same way in boxing as well. Over 10 years ago I met up with a fantastic boxing coach who made a huge impact on my striking game. I love the sport.

I notice you turn you forward hip when you jab where I keep my hip still. That brings up one question for me. Do you turn and reset the hip with every jab when you throw a double or triple jab?

Thanks for commenting on the post and It's great to hear different perspectives on combat stuff.

Hope all is well!

JJ

I've worked with that sort of Lunging Jab after discovering I think that same thing Zen. I like it, it lets you attack from even futher away. You can hit with that Punch basicaly from Kicking Range so it's good for disrupting people.

Alright Jeff

Thanks for responding mate. It's always great when you've come across a coach who has a profound impact on how you work, I encountered a few during my boxing time and also during my time as a coach...we never stop learning mate!

Good point on the hip thing. I'd say that when doubling or tripling up on a jab, we will always either be moving forward or moving backwards (ideally forwards!) Given that the boxer would be moving forward, full retraction of the hip wouldn't be required as the push forward would help on both the range and the power (the timing of the shot working with the foot movement being key.) The most important thing on the double (in my experience) is to ensure that the arm comes all the way back i.e. the upper arm does not remain extended in between jabs and the forearm simply moves in and out.

Hope this makes sense Jeff, and again, thanks very much for getting back.

Yours in Sport

Fran

Just wanted to say thank you guys - I have found this thread to be very informative. Before I started training and began to learn more about combat sports in general, I always undervalued the jab. Obviously I know better today - But this thread is a great reintroduction to such a key move.
