Jab is most impotant punch in boxing. Essentially those three clips show much the same punch, just at different targets.

Try not to over complicate the jab. A jab to the stomach, a jab to the chest, a jab to the head... its still a jab, you know?

In terms of doing a jab quickly, I found nothing was better than the punch bag and explosive lifts with lighter weights. It worked for me.

The thing to work on is form though. Your jab must be powerful and fully developed, using full extension of the arm. A good jab will win you a fight more than any other punch. It sets up power shots, keeps your opponent off balance, keeps your opponent defensive, protects your chin... it has so many uses.

Regarding your videos, (and bearing in mind what I said above) what do you think the advantages to each are? I know what they were to me (one in particular) but I want you to think how you could use it. If you think about what you can do with them, you can apply that quicker in the ring than what someone is telling you. That is my experience.

And in that ring, you have to figure it out yourself. It's a good habit to get into.

And now you know why they call him Prizewriter. Excellent post,PW.

Also Jer, read the JAbs thread here in the boxing forum and try to use some of that to find your own personal answers. Let us know how it goes

There's only one type of jab. A jab. Then there's slight variations, but a jab is still a jab. Just because I do a roundhouse kick to the leg, doesn't make "roundhouse kick" a totally different technique. It's still a roundhouse kick.

A lead straight is not a jab, Jer_SM. Don't get confused and mix them together. That's just about as ignorant as saying "The cross is a jab with the rear arm" or "The swing is a horizontal uppercut". If you think those two sounds totally off, then you know what I feel when you say the lead straight is a jab.
