Бокс: как бить разрушительный джеб (English subs)
Just throw the jab. Do not use your legs at the moment. I said – no legs, just fists. You see, you are trying to make it faster. You accelerate yourself. Without footwork you can accelerate only with your elbow. The result is a scratch movement instead of a real punch. Rotate the fist, the fist must land with a metacarpal head first. Forget now about the shoulder. We will start from the end. Do not think about the shoulder, do not think about the elbow. Here is your fist. Just direct your fist. The fist, understood? The fist. Yes! No. Slow down. Ok. Yes. Slower. Here is a second correction. Why do you try to straighten the arm after the the punch has landed? Elbow. No straight arm, do not straighter=n the arm artificially. You just need to land the fist with the head of the metacarpal first. Ok, now with a footwork. Reach me with your foot. No. Look, what happens. It is a funny thing. You are not making an upward movement. To make a step with a left foot we need to push up first and then go down. You put your foot forward but you sit down instead of rising up. Both legs should be straightened. Up. Both legs. It is not possible to throw a jab while pushing up with the left feet only. Your bodyweight should rest on the back foot. Up. Yes. Where is your upward movement? Push up with both knees. Yes! Here you go, put your elbows narrower. Your back. Look, do not try to put your hands together at the front. Put your shoulders forward instead. And then your hands will come together at the front. And you spread you elbows again. Where is the upward movement? Up with both legs. Yes! Up and punch. Only you know that you are going to go up with your legs. Here I come. I can step on the flat foot. Plant my foot. I push up my weight. I will punish you if you spread your elbows again. Up and punch. The upward feet movement and the fist movement start together but the feet actually comes first. Elbows narrower. Yes! Did it feel different? And the fist travels into the opponent with a downward movement. Sonechka, put the elbows narrower. Here you go. Sit on the back foot. Boom. Up! Just go up, straighten your knees. Both knees. Elbows. I will punch you in the stomach. That’s it. Body work, bodywork and BOOM. One-two-three-BOOM. Go up and the foot will go forward by itself. Elbows narrower! Up! Where is your first movement? You reached with your hand. Aha! Was it a different punch? – I understood. Ok, use it.
