    I meant power jab (back foot) but a good step jab (front foot) from a heavy opponent is no joke either.

    In a fight where clinching is allowed, if you throw jab, and opponent slips it, and throws his front hand over it, he can wrap it up, come around and throw crosses to back of your head.

    Now that is just a scenario. You can snatch up straights and crosses too, but at least they have more reward if you do land, namely being more damage due to be harder punches.

    He carries his lead hand down by his side and fires it up into their faces.

    A speed jab is better even for self defense, unless if the other guy can't box.

    The George Foreman clip was a right hand, not jab

    Leg kicking someone in a fight, doesnt have the same effect it does if your buddy said he go ahead and give me a good leg kick so I can see what it feels like. Than you kick him once, he falls down, cant get up and cant walk. You really wont see this in any type of fight. The concept behind kicking the leg is to wear the guy down and take advantage of it in the later rounds. You can stop guys with it as well, but its a build up effect..........generally speaking.

    jabs kicks and knees are effective in a "street fight"

    i dontbelieve that u can just use a jab to ko the guy a very fast quick snap iv seen it happen many times you dont throw it as to set up a punch throw it to snap his head back that is if you are trying to punch

    well since your a kick boxer isnt the answer for you simple on what to do if hes up close where you cant kick or jab?


    grab a plum and go to town with knees and short elbows till he drops

    Well most people aren't expecting takedowns in the street, so i'd do that and probably step on there head alot. Your jab or low kick would probably lead into a grapple anyway. Unless you have a really high level of striking. If there is a knife or gun involved you would want to get wrist control immediately anyways.
