    i also mix up the strength of my jab.

    i don't want my sparring partner to know which jab is light (and can be easily parried) and which jab is more like a left straight (and will put you on your ass).

    I found jack dempseys book talking about the drop step is pretty useful. It's a 'stiff jab'.

    I found it helped increase power.

    Though it seems a bit slower then a 'regular jab' if that makes any sense.

    BAH ask Annatrocity, she's the striking expert here, im just a weekend martial artist.

    If you post a video I'll tell you why your jab is sucking it up

    another question, would it increase the power in my jab if i step out with my feet pointing out in 3 oclock rather then 12?

    anyway i believe i'm getting gd power into my jab. was probably using pure arm muscles in the past. guess i watched too much of hajime no ippo, "flicker jabs"

    Jack Dempsy's "Championship Fighting" is an all-round good source of info on developing a strong lead punch. The straight lead isn't quite the same as a jab, but it's a good addition to the mix.
