Default double jab

Does anybody know of a good video link that includes the correct way to throw a double jab. when reviewing my jabs they seem like pawing type of motion where I am hitting the wrong part of the glove. I would post a video but its almost too embarrassing.

I usually go for a light jab (to find range) followed by a hard one.

It's tricky but once you get it it's natural and hard to explain.

Best way I can think of is to get the first jab to bounce back at you, like your arm is an automatic elastic thing.

To practice: Throw a jab, throw another jab. Try to throw each one perfectly and as fast as possible and return it as fast as possible.

Just keep doing it, sooner or later the jabs will start to flow together and get faster/start looking better.

The key is to make sure you're throwing two perfect jabs and returning them. Once you have the technique perfected you just work on throwing the two jabs faster. The time gap between them will diminish. A lot of guys get carried away practicing speed and they turn it into an elbow flick (Andre Berto style).

The double-end bag is THE tool to practice double jabs.

Your body has to be going foward simultaneously as the jab is coming out, if its out of sync it will break down.

Push off the backfoot and throw one jab, then stop on the spot, then do another, keep doing this, and go a little faster each time, after a while, you will develop a way of quickening your feet up as you try to double the jab.

The double jab is reliant on transition with the feet, from turning one jab, into two jabs.
