Is it best to kind of catch a jab and deflect it downwards kind of catching it like a base ball, or better to kind of smack it out of the way like you were trying to smack a wrist watch. I have heared that smacking it you can get caught with a fake jab then a left hook. Has never happened to me before though. Usually I will smack technique, then at same time through my own jab. Which has worked effectively for me in the past. Catching technique seems like something could possibly go horribly wrong.
