Boxing: Hooks

How to do Boxing: Hooks

1. Fighting Position: Begin by placing your feet in a staggered stance, slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Your leading foot should be pointing forwards, your rear foot should run close to perpendicular to your lead foot, your knees should be slightly bent, and your torso should be perpendicular to your target

2. Bring your fists up so that your leading hand is about six inches in front of your chin, your rear hand is 2-3 inches from your rear cheek, and your elbows are tucked in next to your ribs

3. Your chin should be slightly tucked and your eyes should look directly over your lead fist, into the eyes of your target. You are ready for action

4. Slightly rotate at your hips away from your target before bringing your lead fist away from your face as you rotate your elbow up

5. Your forearm should now run parallel to the floor as you snap your hips back towards your target while allowing your fist to travel ‘through’ the intended target. Remember to keep your fist, forearm, and elbow in line

6. Bring your leading fist back to fighting position before rotating your hips forward as you lift your rear elbow and create that same parallel line with your rear arm

7. Once again, use your hips to snap forward allowing your rear fist to travel ‘through’ the intended target

8. Immediately retract your rear fist, and twist your body back to the fighting position
