This is the basics to the uppercut. The uppercut is almost the same as the hook just at a different angle and slight adjustments ( invisible boxing) just like jiu jitsu. The concepts and the mechanics are the same as the hook, which makes this punch also one of the more difficult punches to learn…also devastating. This punch works superb together with the hook; though at the same the each punch is a counter to the other. The uppercut can defeat the hook and the hook can defeat the uppercut, but when combined together- it is a lethal combination also when adding the body shots. The key to all these is hip penetration, grounding (base) and allowing the pivoting of the feet. Hope you enjoy!
