Boxing

Offenses to the Head

Straight Lead Jab (1)

-Initiate the Jab’s movement by driving the left elbow up, through the target.

-depending on the strategy, Impact can be anywhere on the scoring target; jaw, eyes, eyebrows, nose, forehead, throat, collarbone, shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, elbows, chest, ribs, belly, etc.

-the Jab is very versatile, and the Follow-Through could be minimal, for repetitive speed, or full on like a battering ram knocking the head up and back, setting up for another punch
-the Purpose of the Jab is to set your range (both offensively and defensively), set up other point scoring power punches, and to keep you in balance 

Straight Rear Hand (2)

-Use the Jab (1) to Set-Up the Straight Right (2)

-Initiate the Straight Right’s movement by pulling left elbow hard to the body and shifting 60% of your weight from the back leg to the front leg

-Impact is at any point on the front of the scoring target (when the Straight Right comes across the target it is a Right Cross. If the elbow is locked at an acute angle less than 180 AND rotates from the shoulder, this is an Overhand Right. Both the Right Cross and Overhand Right are often confused with the Straight Right. They are both advanced offensive skills that will not be covered in this text)
