well exactly in this case, thats more or less what he said has happened
how have you arrived at the conclusion his previous jab was'' far to powerful''No. It exactly didn't. He was throwing a far too powerful jab off the bat and was very unsurprisingly getting caught by a rangier guy.
There is nothing wrong with either version of a jab. Unless you throw them at the wrong time.
So in this particular case better mechanics means a less powerful punch. Because the punch that lands is better than the punch that doesn't.
And this idea transfers in to a bit of boxing concept when we start discussing pacing and cardio.
no it isnt
please quote the bit that specified this
"I had both but the elbow flare telegraphed it, even at my speed. So I'm gonna settle with a less powerful one. It will get gradually more powerful."
"It let me down against a taller, rangier opponent where I felt I was reaching for my shots and I just couldn't get off properly."
no im looking for something that backs up your specific quote that it was '' FAR to powerful
clearly you have no idea how powerful it was before he modified it, so you dont know if it was powerful, to powerful or indeed the one you went with which was FAR to powerful or indeed non of those
my understanding is irrelevant the statements are either right or they are wrong and as you have no data on which to base them, there only a very small chance that your correctYes I do.
Because I understand the subject.
There is a lot of back of house about striking that I am using to apply to these statements.
Just because you don't understand these statements doesn't make them wrong.

saying it just that you understand is just what water diviners say
Glad I read through- this was going to be my suggestion! When you bump your elbow every time you mess it up, you learn to fix it (or at least notice it) real quick.For me personally. I wouldn't describe it with words. I would have a person stand next to a wall where the punching arm is close enough to punch. That motion that you use to punch when your arm is that close is the motion you use to jab. Remember how it feels and repeat when training.
I like that it takes the guess work out of wondering if the elbows flare and that it doesn't require anyone to watch. Instant feedback.Glad I read through- this was going to be my suggestion! When you bump your elbow every time you mess it up, you learn to fix it (or at least notice it) real quick.
Thanks for showing that clip. Now I can understand what your guys are talking about.This is actually a video of the drill we're talking about, that shows the flare at the beginning. Basically the elbow pops out to the side instead of going forwards.
