BOXING 101 | JAB
Round two of boxing basics prepping for correct technique and the next YOXING session. The jab can be used as a crucial defensive shot, power punch or to get your opponent off guard. Weight and alignment is key to prevent injury but also to set up the next punch you are going to roll with. Ruan from F.I.T.E PT takes you through the basics of a jab to get you punching like a pro in no time.
REMEMBER * Prep Boxing stance (see stance 101 here) * Slight bend in knee * Weight starts off mostly on back foot * Extend left arm straight out at head height * Turn wrist and knuckles slightly punching with first two knuckles * Keep right hand at cheek and elbow tucked in
Power is generated from your hips not your shoulder. Make sure you are rotating hip and pivoting front foot to generate more power. A slight step forward when punch also allows your to throw with more force.
