Back to the basics: Throwing the hook

TrainingIconA power punch that all boxers should know is the hook.  For more information on the hook, check out our section on that punch.   For now, lets go over the basics of the hook through a video I made.  I will demonstrate the hook thrown with a vertical fist, with a horizontal fist, hook to the body and the shovel hook.  I will demonstrate the proper body mechanics for these punch variations.  If you have any question, be sure to contact me through the contact link at the top of the site.
