A discussion with a co-worker has me wondering about hook punches. He throws them differently than I have been taught. I have a couple of questions for how you all throw them. I got home and looked up video's and see conflicting information on the first question, and so far nothing on the second one. 1. (I am talking about thumb up hooks here.) Do you have a slight bend/ curl or is your wrist completely straight? Why? 2. What is your weight distribution - front to back leg - when throwing a lead hook. Again, why?
