I'm bored and I can't go to the gym for one and a half months, so I decided to amateuristically record the speed of my punches using my brother's camera with 30 frames/sec... I just punched in the air a bit. A jab, a lead right, and a one-two. I measured the speeds in 2 ways: A) till arm is fully extended (aka: when you hit your target) Jab: 3 frames = 0.100s Lead right: 7 frames = 0.233s One-two: 9 frames = 0.300s B) till body is rotated back to the original position (my feet werent completely back in place yet) Jab: 8 frames = 0.267s Lead right: 18 frames = 0.600s One-two: 20 frames = 0,667s Please note that I used as perfect as possible technique. I have a european stance with my elbows tucked in, right hand touching cheek, left hand a bit out, left shoulder protecting chin, and most importanty: not squared at all!! Feel free to measure your own speed the same way and compare... It won't mean that much since stance/technique can differ and 30 frames/sec isn't amazing. But as I said before, I'm bored

So the duration you can't see during a blink is: 2 frames = 0.067s Again, it's not very accurate due to the 30 frames/sec so don't take this too seriously.

If I knew your internet boxing forum reputation meant that much to you I wouldn't have done it.

I do think it's kinda funny now though...

The jab should be quicker than the eye. If I were you, I'd stop dicking around with the speed measuring bull**** and, since you got the time off, work on jumping rope and the slip bag..come back with monstrous stamina.

Aren't you this guy?
I just measured your jab and it was 2 frames on youtube until extended. Youtube handles 6 frames/sec so that's 0.333s. That's 3.333 times slower than mine. (and 5.555 times slower than the eye)
And it took 5 frames to get it back into starting position, that's 0.833s. That's 3.121 times slower than mine.

Until extended: 4 frames: 0.667s = 2.223 times slower than mine.
Until brought back: 9 frames: 1.500s = 2.249 times slower than mine.

And also keep in mind your stance is pretty squared, so your punches should have actually been faster.

And FYI I already worked my stamina yesterday. And measuring that speed only took me like 3 minutes so there's plenty of time for other stuff relax.

I could do that but I don't really care that much about the actual speed. This is more about the duration of a punch. With my 30 frames/s camera, my measurements can be (in the worst case) 1/30sec = 0.033s off.
So the slowest my jab is till extended would be 0.133s and the fastest 0.078s.
As I said before it's not extremely accurate. Youtube with 6 frames/s is much less accurate though: it can be 1/6sec off = 0.167s.

But since the jab for example happens in only 3 frames it's kinda useless to measure the actual speed because of the acceleration.

So his straight punch was as fast as your jab.
