Re: Muay Thai: Technique Talk
The jab is a technique that I am familiar with. People often, and correctly, tell others the importance of driving off the back foot. The part they leave out is landing the jab while the front foot is off the floor. This way you get more of the weight transfer into the punch. The jab is unique because this is the only punch that works that way. Every other punch, you push off with the same foot you are punching with. The jab is the only punch in which you push off with the opposite side.
