Be infront of a mirror, Jab at your head's refection, then with the same hand hook at your head's refection(don't hit the mirror!) Keep doing that pattern till you could barly move your arm. :boxing:

What about the other punches? :confused: Only a jab and a hook won't make you win fights.

Jab is the most important punch your arsenal, it keeps your opponent away and sets the tone as well as follows up with the hard punches. A fast jab could be the key to your victory.

I completely agree, Oscar DeLaHoya didnt really develop his right hand until his fight with arturo Gatti and as we all know he won a lot of matches before that.

i agree with you bro, it's more than just his long arms that won fights for him, it's his tremendous handspeed. did they call his jabs "flicker jabs"?

Why not just jab at the speed bag and use one rebound instead of three. You could do the same thing with a double end bag or cobra bag. :boxing:

I know the jab is very important ;) . If you can follow up with a flurry of fast (and powerful)punches after you've hit your opponent with the jab it may result in a KO. I don't know about you guys but I'd rather end the fight with a knockout than going to the judges scorecards. :boxing:

A somewhat easy way 2 measure your jabbing speed is to stand infront of a mirror (so you have to look sideways to see yourself), hold a stopwatch in your rear hand and just jab 5-6 times as fast as possible and check the time.

Check the mirror, so you know your pulling your jab hand back an acceptable amount between jabs.

But this method, if thats what it could be considered, is flawed in the sense that one likely won't be able to measure the speed of only a single or double jab at a time, you'll see it will be very hard to click the stopwatch on and off that fast.

I know its not the most scientific and accurate test, with a lot of potential for human error, but my best is 5 jabs in .82 seconds. (without gloves or wraps of course :p )

It's just a way to get your hands moving faster.
