Problem is there aren't many "good fighters" after 6-7 rounds.

I can barely keep my hands up after 6 rounds of fighting, not to mention keeping my chin and shoulder up.

Well, it's my fault I didn't mention this before but oh well.

6 or 7 rounds!!!!!

When I kick boxed back with the dinosaurs, fights were limited to 5 rounds. My fights were sanctioned by the WKA and I was an amateur fighter.

What sanctioning body governs your fights and are you a pro?

Hmm...

Amateur boxing fights are 5 rounds.
Pro boxing fights can be upto 12 rounds, but mostly limited to 10 rounds.
MT rounds are most of the time 5 rounds, but can be extended upto 7 rounds depending on circumstances.
AKB (the full-contact karate version) are 5 rounds.
Kickboxing can be upto 7 rounds depending on circumstances.

What sanctioning body governs my fights?
I'm a pro? Not really, I'm just a beginner

Wah lao, heng sia. . .

Amateur fights are 4 rounds, each round is 2 minutes with 1 minute break between them.

The jab, as taught to me in savate, sounds a bit more like a hybrid between the straight lead and the 'jab' as described above. It's quick and 'whippy' and comes back as fast as it goes out but there's usually a fair bit of hip rotation and twisting around the ball of the lead foot with the heel of the lead foot lifting slightly.

However, I'd not normally do a step foward while delivering the punch except to the extent that I might be moving forward already. We also practice jabbing while backing away from an oncoming fighter too, as a defensive technique to fend them off (as well as other things like chasse frontals and the like).

Your jab is like everyone's jab.

A straight lead you punch "through" your target. The jab is more to create a "whiplash" effect. That's basically the difference.

I actually figured out the difference between these 2 while opening the post, got me thinking about the jab

I use the jab a lot because of my reach and iv landed punches a number of times to the neck mostly with hooks though, doesn't matter who you are you cannot defend yourself perfectly 100% of the time.

If your catching him a lot with the jab and want to bully him a bit or show your strength go in with the left straight hey presto a bit more power behind the shot, like you say not as quick but more likely to slip straight through the guard as well.

Also double and triple those jabs up, or jab then left straight, left straight etc... miss the first time then push straight through with the second and rock his head right back.

Larry Holmes knocked people out with a lead straight. Don't confuse the lead straight with a jab. The mechanics are similar but totally different usage.

The lead straight looks like a jab, but is more akin to the cross. Basically, it's a straight punch delivered with force that is supposed to ko people like a cross. It's not fast as the jab but more powerful, and it's not powerful like the cross but faster.

That's a little Muay Thai for ya

Chen, thanks for doing this for me, I'm not so good on the outside and there's no way I'd be able to write like that, thanks man.

John, thanks for the extra info, the backfist has been a powerful tool in my arsenal but I rarely use them as my instincts tells me to either go for the jab or body hook, but it's just me that need more training.

Anyone got any questions?

-Taison out



I propose the next "Lets Go Technical" be the lead straight because I am not sure what you mean. (I thought a straight punch was the one they do in Karate.)
