Bear in mind also, if anyone leans in a bit too far with their jab, you can catch it with your left hand and throw a right cross to their head. It's riskier than a return jab, but when timed right the benefits outweigh the risks imo.

For some reason it says your videos are private so I can't watch.
One of the most useful things I have been learning, is the importance of being able to strike while using footwork at the same time.
Many people who throw a mean combo can only do it when they are standing still, then they have mad footwork but the punches stop. Watch people sparring you will see it often.
It doesn't matter if you have the sickest bob n weave on the planet if your feet aren't moving an experienced fighter will tear your body apart.
If you are struggling with the jab entry check that you are stepping into your opponent not just jabbing where he was if that makes sense ? Also if you getting hit on the way in that is where your other glove should be protecting.
When you step in don't spread your feet too wide and don't lean.
Good luck man.
