Where to jab with the 1-2
Before I used to always throw the 1-2 in the same area: I would jab to the head and then follow it with a straight right. I rarely seemed to land my right hand. I would find my opponents would generally do this: I would jab, they would raise their guard, and then my right would land on their rasied guard. Very frusterating.
My new coach has me doing this: Jab lower, almost in the chest area. This would be a distarction, and if they block the jab, their hands are now lowered, allowing a clear path for the right.
Does everyone else do this? Is this a "common" method of using the 1-2?
