Hook: execution technique
Hook is called a side kick in the box. It is made on a curved trajectory. Due to this, the hand in the swing will fall into the so-called blind zone of the opponent, because of which the latter does not get a chance to fully defend himself or avoid a blow. That is why quite often the hook becomes the last and decisive blow before sending the opponent into a knockout. At the same time, the key to success lies in strength, accuracy and speed.
In the starting position, the arms should be bent inelbows at right angles and tightly pressed against the body. Fists should be at the level of the chin. Lifting the hand, gradually extend the elbow. The fist is guided along a trajectory reminiscent of a hook. The force will depend on the amplitude, the radius of rotation of the body and the speed of application.
