Forest School of Karate’s head teacher booked me for a second private lesson on Tuesday ahead of our class on Wednesday. Tonight we worked on using the jab. He was partnered with his and I was able to coach them both on use of the jab/parry and the duck, countering with jabs to the head and body. This was then integrated into footwork drills. I also introduced a simiple timing exercise. The lesson was finished with 2 x 2 minute rounds of specific sparring. Specific sparring restricted one boxer to only jabbing and allowed the other to use all boxing techniques. We were able to explore various tactics to close and maintain distance.
