    Do you know when you turn the arm/ fist from vertical to horizontal and it adds snap?

    Well try turning it faster whilst tensing your arms as minimally as is possible the less tension there the better.

    That will add snap/power.

    Next try the same but turn the fist so the thumb points down at a 45 degree angle. This will add even more snap/ power and is more likely to cut them.

    Dont telegraph by flaring the elbow too much try to "drill or cork screw" the arm so to speak.

    Jab should never be about power, you should concentrate on technique and speed.

    You are never going to KO people with a jab, stop trying to make it into something that it isn't suppose to be.

    Punch through the target.

    Trust me, a fast jab still hurts.

    This is very true.

    You'll notice some pros who can hit really hard and sometimes KO someone with a fast snappy straight shot, usually throw it from very low with very relaxed shoulders and the speed and strength they get to add to it comes from them slightly shuffling forwards when they throw it, so they move weight in fast.

    Watch Mosley its where he caught a few guests he had in the ring. (But guess what eventually beat him?)

    Someone working smart from behind a controlling and well timed straight jab, watch Vernon Forrest take Mosleys style apart with it.

    I can explain it.
    But I cant understand it for you.

    Just found this while wandering around. Informative, and it made me like a fighter I didn't much care for previously.

    If you want to make it a power shot throw it from the hips with the same hip motion as a left hook, it will be fast and powerful, BUT a jab is only meant to be powerful enough to off balance the opponent etc so you can set up your really heavy power shots like the hook and cross. All the best boxing trainers in the world agree with this and its proven to be effective. But now you have an experimental weapon to play with. GL HF.

    Great find Grey! Paulie is a great teacher, very indicative of who he is as a boxer as well as how great he is as a commentator also!
