Is the jab as prized a tool in Muay Thai in Thailand (I'm not talking about the U.S. or elsewhere were there is a strong Western Boxing influence) as it is in Western Boxing circles? If not, then how prized a tool is it? Is it considered to be the most important strike in Muay Thai?
And how does the application of the jab differ in Muay Thai in Thailand from how it is used in boxing?
Lastly, how prominent is its use in Thailand?
If someone who is knowledgeable with the state of Muay Thai in Thailand could shed light on the above, I would appreciate it.
