    Yes, you've got it right. You throw the Shotgun Jab by pivoting the hip (very miniscule pivot on the front toes, but the pivot is there!) and the shoulders.


    WARNING: TANGENT!

    There is also a Jab we refer to as the "inverted jab" where you literally OVER-twist the punch so that your elbow points up and your palm turns towards the outside. Its a neat technique to learn, but I really don't think there are too many people who would find a practical use for it. Let's say you're throwing a left jab (left = lead side). When you jab, you keep the arm slightly bent and twist the punch clockwise so that your thumb is towards the floor and your palm is facing the outside. The purpose of the punch is to land the jab while simultaneously deflecting the hook.

    Like I said, its neat to learn, fun to practice, but I really don't see where it can be put into practical application....

    i use that style of jabbing fairly frequently, typically I'll throw a halfassed purposely missed hook to the head, to get their arms to come up, do a deep falling step as I continue the hooking motion and finally turn it over as a stiff jab to the body. I have a lot of success with it.

    Hmmmm... That sounds like a cool application of that technique. I'm going to have to experiment with that. Thanks for adding that!
