In the next combination we’re going to workout
on, is going to be a four punch combination. Now we’re going to throw a left jab to the
head, we’re going to step forward like we learned about earlier, stepping forward with
the right foot to getting close, we’re going to throw a right hook to the body, protecting
ourself with our left hand, remember. We’re going to rear back a little bit, throw a right
hook to the head. Okay? Then we’re going to bring our right hand back to our face for
protection, and as we step off with our right foot, we’re going to exit with a left jab
to the head. That’s almost going to be a push, a simulated push, where you’re telling your
opponent, “Don’t follow me. There’s more where that came from,” then as your step back. Okay?
So a little bit faster -left jab, right foot, right hook to the body, right hook to the
head, left jab on the way out. Okay? Still retaining your stance, okay? One, two, three,
four, five, okay? Left jab on the way in, right foot, right hook to the body, right
hook to the head, left jab on the way out. Adding a little bit more speed – one, two.
Very important not to get stuck there after you get done your right hooks. If you’re stuck
there, chances are you’re going to get hit back. And as we learned earlier, amateur boxing,
you don’t want to get hit back if you can help it. You want as many unanswered punches
as you can, hence the fact that we’re going to punch on the way out. We’re punching on
the way in to get their attention, to get them on the defense; we’re throwing a hook
to the body, hook to the head, punch on the way out – four punch combination.

  1. I think he forgot to mention on the exit jab that a left hook is going to land right square in your face with that open technique.

  2. Nah dude, this guy is nice. He's just old school. My trainer is like that, very strict about form and technique. At first it frustrated me because I wanted some slicker shit (I'm from the ghetto!) but when I got in the ring, all that shit he said worked.

  3. @nomadineternity no it doesnt, unless your fighting bare knuckle. if that would break your knuckles then you should nvest in some milk man.

  4. @sikmah66 I preferred to throw a hook with palm sideways, that way i could follow up with an uppercut by only dropping my elbow which would bring my hand into perfect position for the uppercut. If you hook with palm down then you would need to drop your elbow and turn your hand.

    You are correct about the turning the palm down brings the elbow into play.

    Early in a fight I would leave palm down but once opponent is hurt and I am on full offensive then I woudl turn the hook half way.
