Learn the Double Left Hook
If you can hit them with one shot, then you can hit them with two!
My theory is, if you can hit them with one shot, then you can hit them with two. In the quick “how to box” video above, I demonstrate a few variations of the double left hook. The first one is the double head hook. You can throw this technique after slipping the right cross, add it to the end of a combination or, if you are feeling confident, use it as an opening move straight from your ready stance.
It is definitely worth you experimenting with the “high to low hook” and “low to high hook”. If the high hook is blocked you can go straight down stairs and vice versa. This is a great way to create openings on your opponent. With the double low hook, I like to tap to see the space, then power the second body hook through.
When using this in sparring and when in the ring, again, as I always stress, make sure you mix it up. Don’t keep throwing the same combinations, keep your opponent guessing, this will make landing your punches easier and give you a higher landing success rate.
