How does one accommodate for a short jab when the opponent suddenly comes in. In the picture, the Punch is at an angle and not extended. Opponent comes in during the middle of a jab. What is the best way or form to deal with this boxing situation?

  • @mattsmith5 could you just clarify what you mean by "accommodate for"? Are you asking how you, as the one throwing the jab, would react if your jab was shortened by your opponent moving in, or are you asking how you should react if your opponent throws a jab as you move in to attack them? Just trying to clarify the need in my head. Sep 24 at 9:40
  • @RobO'Neill the one throwing the jab, would react if your jab was shortened by your opponent moving in,

  • @mattsmith5. It depends upon a lot of variables. What is your opponent doing as they advance? What punch(es) are they throwing? What position are you in? Are you advancing/retreating/circling? We may be able to answer you, but more detail is required. Without this info, I suggest drilling double and triple jabs combined with forward, backward and circular footwork. These techniques can help stymie offensive manoeuvres. Sep 28 at 10:18
