Re: My Experiences in Cross Training MMA with Aikido

Catching jabs out of the air? Stepping back? From what I recall, the last time I stepped back to avoid a jab, there was a straight right waiting for me. A jab is a setup punch. Primarily, it judges distance, blinds and creates openings by illiciting a response. Over reacting to one can be a very bad idea. Boxers (who deal with it most often and most effectiviely) sometimes deal with a jab by bobbing and weaving and slipping inside the stiff end of the punch.
