The boxing combination par excellence!

The simplest combination you can do is the Jab Cross or if you want to call it with the numbers 1-2, but how to pull the combination in question is an absolute must for all combat sports and not only, the combination par excellence taught from day one.

Many gym veterans will tell you that the left jab opens and the right hand with the cross ends.

Ps. I can tell you after so many years in this fighting environment that surely what they say is right. Boxing is a science but it contains in an apparent simplicity the details necessary to make it work.

At beginner level, it is possible to win with this simple combination any sparring or match only by mastering this technique well of 1-2 and using it over and over again but if you learn it well, you may actually be able to win even a world title just by pulling this simple combination of Jab Cross.

Now my advice is, read each stage and practice slowly and individually so that each step is performed separately from the next step.

Only after you have internalized each step individually do you begin to practice them together as a fluid, chained movement.

Ps. Practice in front of a mirror and if you can film and look at yourself!.

Combination one two (1-2) has three simple steps:

1. Jab with semi displacement – Pulls an insidious and “sharp” shot with a slight step forward with the advanced foot.

2. Slide your back foot – Slide your back foot slightly to take your entire body forward to your opponent. At the same time the arm of the jab is pulled back to quickly resume the guard position. Important must be simultaneous!!

3. Right hand – Pull the cross with your right hand forward as you rotate your back foot, hips and shoulders. Recover your right hand quickly after the blow.

  • Keep your eyes on the target, don’t look on the ground.
  • Bend your knees when you shoot the cross with your right hand; That’s because you put your body’s weight in the blow. “Bring the weight of the blow on him!”
  • Lifting your right heel, your right foot swinging as you swing your heel outwards and your calf to push in the direction of your fist increases the power of the blow. Your foot is like you’re crushing a cigarette. The tip of the right foot must be in the direction of the shot. By turning the heel, add power to your fist and rotating your hips and letting your shoulder go forward to “push” increases the power of guilt. The only hip rotation is what adds the most to the power.
  • Always hold on to the one-two every time you throw the jab. When you see the slightest opening, pull the cross with your right hand. Over time you have to learn how to make a quick decision-making process between steps 2 and 3 to decide whether or not to pull the cross with your right hand. Learn to make decisions on the fly because it’s much better than trying to pull the 1-2 combination every time.
  • Fake the jab before pulling the one-two.
  • He pulls the jab, pulls another jab and then pulls the cross with his right hand. (Jab-jab-right)
  • Pull the jab, pretend with your right hand and then pull the cross with your right hand.

Ps. If you’re left-handed it’s the same thing but mirrored even if there’s a difference on distance because you’re mirrored as a guard as well.

Now that you’ve learned the 1-2 combination, make sure you use it often in training and sparring because it’s easy to learn but hard to make effective, this is a combination you need to practice until you’re no longer afraid to pull it whenever you want.

Stay Tuned!
