Starting with your guard up and from the ready position the hook
punch is created by a circular motion commencing with the legs.
Bend the knees slightly to drop your weight and then rise in a circular
motion by turning the front foot and hip inwards slightly. Bring
your hand up and over (as though you were punching over your opponents
shoulder), with your feet, hips and shoulder all turning in the
same direction. Do not over-rotate beyond the width of your shoulders.
As with all the punches, immediately recover back to ready position
with your guard up, ready for the next move. But like all other
punches there are many variations, you may be striking to different
levels or angles still using what is essentially a hook punch.
