Learn how to properly position your body and throw a jab punch from a professional kickboxing instructor in this free instructional video.
Hi, my name is Julio Anta from Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense in Miami, Florida and you can reach us on the internet at www.antakungfu.com and right now we are going to show you one of most basic boxing punches. The first punch we usually teach whether you are going to go in a ring and box or whether you are going to be doing fitness kick boxing and it is called the jab. First we are going to demonstrate. Move, move, and as you can see, keep on moving, As you can see when Jeanette is moving her elbows is down, her body is totally relaxed. She has gloves on; she does not even need to squeeze the fist. If she is fighting in the street she will need to tighten up her fist at the moment of impact. There is continuous movement in her body. Now shuffle and jab and now you can see her shuffling somewhat and jabbing. Jabbing is a stopping punch. It is like the best thing getting ready for your cross or your hook or your stronger punches. She is keeping her shoulder up and her chin in and as she does it perfect alignment of her body. So even if she is doing fitness kick boxing you want perfect alignment. Correct technique keeps you from injuries and as you can see, the jab comes in and out fast. It comes in a lot faster than it goes out.
