Re: How Do You counter The Counter Jab ?
There are many ways to counter a jab.
Catch and counter with your own jab, slip and hook to body, duck and right to the body, side step and hook to the head...
Me, I became a master at the right hand over the jab, and I mean master. I drilled this move and fell so in love with it, it became my pet counter; It is muscle memory for me to throw a right hand over a jab. Some times this gets me in trouble, other times, it scores me easy knockouts.
Having a pet, or rote, counter to a jab is something a boxer should have. Never JUST defend the jab. If you see it coming well enough, or if it's too slow or too sloppy, your body should have something in the wings to make the other guy pay.
