Default Re: How Do You counter The Counter Jab ?

You can catch his jab, so it goes you jab he catches, he jabs you catch easiest way to do this is probably put your right glove in a position to catch his jab as you throw your own, depending on how far he commits to his jab you can try throwing a left hook as you catch his jab and you might catch his coming in. Again, don't assume he will always throw his jab after catching yours.

A jab to the body is also effective here, because he can't catch & counter that.

Also you can jab knowing he is going to catch and counter it. Throw your jab, and then change levels and fire a straight right to the body, this should make his jab fly over your right shoulder.

Try and mix it up and be unpredictable, after he gets countered a few times he should become hesitant and throwing that same counter jab.
good advice..another thing he can do is switch the jab to a hook..of course you have to be able to hook off a jab..but if you can do that than its a good weapon.
