Default Re: Where to jab with the 1-2

There are more ways to throw the 1-2, the way i suggested was more of an observation technique. If you do this in the first couple of rounds its effective. Its to see how the guy reacts to your jab, so if he counters make adjustments, if he parries it try to double up. etc etc.

The point is to try and make your 1-2's effective and accurate. There is no need to mindlessly keep throwing 1-2's and letting your opponent get your rhythm down. If he does you will get eaten alive.
