"I’ve worked with enough boxers to know a thing or two about throwing a punch! I’ve found over the years that throwing the left hook is a difficult punch to master for some boxers and an easy punch to master for others. Like running or dancing, some people are born with great rhythm and body mechanics. Natural athletes are very efficient and there body’s move in way that can appear quite artful or balletic some might say. While others (the unfortunate motor morons of the world) seem rigid and robotic and can’t get the motion to feel right. There is however good news, as the left hook is a skill that can be taught and mastered!"
