Muay Thai Jab Techniques


Jab Basic


The Jab is used to irritate the opponent or to find the range. Accurate and skillful jabbing will cause a lot of anxiety for the opponent. To throw this kind of punching accurately, one has to practice on the punching bag. The jab could be used in the attack, defense, and retreat.

Jab Beginners to advanced video tutorial: 

When in your guard stance with your left forward, snap your left hand forward, swinging your left shoulder forward with it for extra power and weight. You must push off of your right foot as well for that extra shift in your body weight. The jab is used to attack your opponent's face.
