How To Throw Hooks | Revisited | Updated
1: Stand in your normal fighting stance. Power punchers generally keep their lead (left) foot closer to foward with their right than straight punchers.
2:Do the following simultaneously:
Plant your back (right) foot and keep it there. This foot will move when you move forward to deliver the blow.
Shift your left foot onto the toe and twist rightward as if you are swinging a bat.
Lower your left arm and cock it at a 50 degree angle
3: Twist your torso to the left.
Keep your right hand at the chin as a guard.
4: Then do the following simultaneously:
Starting with the legs, unwind your slightly twisted body while twisting your left foot on its toe to the right.
Use all of the force you can muster to unwind your torso.
Keep your chin down (always) and tilt you head out of range.
Keep your left arm locked at a 90-degree angle.
Strike your opponent squarely on the chin or body
5:After the point of impact, your energy should be completely expended. Don't twist so much that you fall over. Maintain your balance.
Quickly twist back into your normal stance. It will feel fluid and fast. You are very vulnerable to a straight right (a knockout punch) after you have thrown a left hook.
