For a long time, my jab was a complete arm punch, with hardly any torque behind it. As time has gone on, however, I've started to use more shoulder whirl in my jab. How does everyone here jab?

Depends what im trying to do. If I want to score a point than Ill just take a small step forward and jab. If I want to hit him hard with the jab than I use a little torque with the steps.

Co-signed. It all depends on the situation

Depends. I'll throw flicking upjabs that are almost all arm, regular jabs with a step in which uses a bit more weight, and power jabs where I drive forward hard almost jumping at my opponent that have a lot of body weight behind them.
