The right arm blocks the upper left hook and punches back the abdomen (Fig. 78)
When an opponent strikes me in the abdomen with a left hook punch, I should quickly bend my right elbow to bring my right arm close to the right side of my body, turn my body slightly to the left to cushion the blow of the upper hook punch, and tuck my chest and abdomen, tighten my cheeks, shift my weight to my left foot, and hit him in the head or abdomen with the left hook punch.
Note: Pay attention to the distance when attacking and defending and returning fire, and develop the habit of seizing the opportunity to return fire after defense and attacking through practice.
Move backwards to get rid of the left flat hook boxing return fire (Figure 79)
When an opponent strikes me in the abdomen with a left upper hook punch, I lift my left foot with my right foot and move backwards to avoid my opponent’s upper hook punch, at which point the center of gravity of my body shifts from the front foot to the back foot, and quickly combines the front slide sprint step to fight back with a straight punch or any punch.
Note: (1) Offensive and defensive actions can be broken down into exercises. The practice of defensive return fire should first master the movement of moving backwards to get rid of, and then combining with front sliding steps to punch back, and the distance should be appropriate. The center of gravity should be stable.
(2) When close combat, pay attention to the abdomen and chest, tighten the chin, and raise the protective head with both hands.
The right hand returns the head with a left flat hook (Figure 80)
When my opponent attacked my abdomen and ribs with a left-hand hook. I slap the attacker’s wrist and fist sleeve with explosive force downwards with my right forearm, while turning slightly to the left to cushion the strike disc, focusing on my left foot, then turning to the right, and quickly hitting him in the head with a left flat hook with my left hand.
