(Safe jabbin is never to be under estimated, it is always of high value.)
Jabbing is everything. What I should say is it's the most important punch. You use it to set up offense you can use as a defense. Can be used to bust up an opponent. There are many more examples of why the jab is so important. Who's up for putting some more in the mix.
