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.

It really depends. I was a boxer forever, so naturally how I'd want to handle a jab would be to block/catch/deflect it over your shoulder and throw a counter jab.

But there are more than one way to handle this situation.

Another one is the slap and move, and go inside on out left outside.

Maybe, but you'd also have to take out Ed Harris, and that's just not happening.

Drum technique. If do right no can defense.
That actually works quite well if you step-switch stances and counter with a cross/overhand immediately after the interception. At least it will the first time no problem. There's a bit of choreography to it, but its such an unexpected motion that it throws the opponent off. However its advised to snap the intercepting arm up to a deflective block for any kind of counter-counter(such as a cross) to the head. If done right its a rather sick and effective movement.

honestly you should learn multiple defences and try to switch between them, otherwise you will open yourself up to a Feint where they counter your defence
I've done this to people when they go to the well the same way on a Jab.
As an example if every time I Jab you Slip to the Outside, I promise I'll bring a kick up to crack you in the dome by the third time you do it in a row...

Exactly "no can defend" :thumb02:
