I feel the Left Hook is the best strike in all of the martial arts. There are so many reasons for my left hook loyalty... below are a few.
1. Power... Ask any of Mike Tyson's opponents
2. Proximity...Your hand positioning to throw the hook is closer to your opponent's chin.
3. Stealth...The hook can be deployed, and land with the least warning of any other strike.
4. Safest...This is the hardest strike to counter.
5. Versatility...It is the most versatile strike a martial artist can throw.
