Punches in Bunches Martial arts specifically boxing can be a very complex sport In American Boxing there is only one way to score and that is to strike your opponent with the front side of your boxing glove This is called a punch Punches can be broken down into two categories Straight punches which usually are speedier and wide angle punches which generally have more power The most basic straight punch is the jab because it is already half way to the target The jab is thrown by taking the foreword hand and throwing it with speed straight at the target This punch can be thrown once or multiple times in a row It will set up other punches in a combination and is good for catching the opponent off guard Its generally the least powerful punch in a boxers arsenal compared to the hook the basic wide angle punch The hook is thrown with either hand to the side of the opponent Either to their head or the side of their body It is the most frequently used wide angle punch Its not quite as fast as the jab but is many times more powerful Much more body weight and waist snap can be put into the hook The Hook is usually thrown one or two times in a row with a single hand doing all of the work If you chose to throw alternating left and right hooks the combination possibilities are endless The most devastating punch basically because of the element of surprise is the uppercut This punch is so surprising because of the odd nature of it The uppercut is thrown by dropping your hand tucking your elbow in towards the navel and providing an upward force aiming for the opponents abdominal chin or forehead Uppercuts unlike other wide angle punches are strictly thrown during inside fighting Generally the least thrown because of the wind up factor
