Default step forward during jab vs. planting feet starionary

Russ anber was saying in a video that your feet should be planted firmly when jabbing in a stationary position, but this gentlemen states that you should always try to step forward (even just very little) to generate power.

From what I understand about the secince of punching (mass + speed + distance = power). By steping in with the jab you are bringing the mass of your body into the jab.
By planting your feet and twisting into the punch the power comes through your leggs through your body into your arm. Both methods will produce more power than just sticking your arm out. You can always use both methods in a boxing match.

Depends on if your attacking or defending. Step forward when attacking and plant for defense.

It depends where your target is and what direction you are moving in. Sometimes you jab stepping backwards, sometimes it's sideways, forward or stationary.

Ya what RDJ 's saying...a jab is many things depending on it's intent. Sometimes use it for keeping distance, usually just throwing it out. Sometimes setting up a basic 1-2, allowing for transfer of weight and a semi feint. Another time may be a quick step in, step out to set up a counter, if I'm fighting a counter fighter. All depends on who is across from you and what the intention is.

My trainer always say to move my feet with every punch. I pivot on my hooks and step with my jab. even if it's the smallest baby step throwing a punch w/o moving ur feet a little makes you too stiff. all boxers need to stay in a rhythm and when u stand still you lose it.

Maybe this is what you meant to but my trainer always says throw, then pivot. If you pivot as your hooking you loose power. There is a trainer in our gym who always insists you must step forward with the jab and im inexperienced and i would never answer back but i think he is wrong. Its situation dependent i think.

With the hook you pivot and turn ur hips and have ur arm follow behind... Rough description but i know i know what you mean. And w/ the jab i have been trained that every time my front foot lads is the opportunity to throw a jab. so i can be varied by taking quicker or slower steps. Ya dig?

Depends on the range, if its long range (neither of you can punch one another without stepping forward), then you move forward, if its mid-range, (arms length from opponent) just snap your arm out, stepping in will smother your Punch.

Ultimately you should use your jab in different ways, depending on the needs and purpose behind it. This can be said for any punch and any movement.

The reason behind someone telling you to do something one way is because first you need to get a grasp on the basics, I mean if they are like, do it anyway you'd like, you would get no where. It's a one step at a time thing.

I think it's a good Idea to, when you first start boxing, to step in with your jab. And the reason trainers will tell you this is because otherwise, you have a guy "sitting" there just throwing punches who is not so experienced with his range, etc., and you can bet that isn't going to land, even against a non experienced fighter, who would just step back.

Also keep in mind, trainers will give you advice, which may not necessarily be for anyone else. This is because they see what you are doing wrong and right and what works for you, They may even over emphasis it with "always", that doesn't mean ultimately that is the way it should always be done, just they gotta say that just so they can see SOMETHING done about it, a correction.

You'll be very easy to read if you're stepping forward. And if you step forward with your jab, hit him hard, won't the opponent usually be gone before you can land your second punch?

It's best to vary. Personally I prefer to find the right distance before I'm punching.

if you catch him with a good jab it will slow him down & he wont be able to move like he wants but you have to take advantage of the little time you have after your 1st blow

It depends; both are fine - as long as you don't jump in with the jab, which leaves you wide open for a counter.
