i can basically do a back hook (not really high, probably up to opponent's chest level), but i just cannot do my back hook fast enough. Anyone have any tips on mastering back hook and doing jumping back hook? Is Jumping back hook effective for street fighting?

FF,

At the risk of upsetting the Taekwondo censors who are lurking, I will skip the first question and answer the second-no, jumping back hook is most probably a complete waste of time for non-tournament fighting and probably a waste of time for tournament fighting for most people. Anyone who tells you this kick is great "in the street" has most likely not done any fighting outside of a sport environment.

If you want to "street fight", first advice is probably don't. If you must, then work on close punching, elbows, headbutts, poking and grappling (or a least getting out of grabs/chokes/strangles and getting up again quickly!) Again, I stand to be corrected by the Taekwondo people, who may be different from the ones I trained with on occasion, but I do not think Taekwondo emphasises these techniques.

Barad, he didn't ask you for "Is it street effective?". He asked how to do it.

Stay on topic.

I'm warning you

Again, check your eyes out mate, he asked specifically whether it worked for "streetfighting". His exact words were "Is Jumping back hook effective for street fighting?"
Do you actually read through any of the posts you respond to?

Apologies are in order Taison

For your first question FightingFeet, doing a back hook kick chest height is not very high, indeed, when I have seen it done in sparring, it is almost always to the head. The best way to look at the kick, is as a back kick with a rapid snap back at the knee. If you practice your back kicks and jumping back kicks, then add in the hook once you become good at the back kick, then it should be easier to improve.

As for your second question, I have yet to see how a back hook could be "street" effective, it's a pretty weak kick and can only do damage to the head, which involves kicking high, something that is always risky enough, but which seems daft for such a weak kick. Keep it for sparring if you must, but forget it as far as self defense is concerned.

Hi Fighting Feet.

It sounds like you need to do a little more stretching before you attempt a jumping spinning hook kick.

You really need to be able to kick Nopunde before attempting to combine it with a jump. Otherwise your lack of flexibility will cause you to overcompensate and overbalance. It could be that Box Splits are the order of the day for you.

With regards to using the jump spinning hook kick for Street fighting... Fisrtly are you talking Self-Defence or Street Fighting?

Cheers
GriffyGriff

I wouldn't really want to try a jumping spinning hook kick in competition or in a street fight. as soon as you jump you open yourself up to counterattack. If you catch your opponent off guard or off balance, then it might be worth a try. As for in a street fight, my master instructor told me a story about getting assaulted in the street. It was even icy on the street. He did a spinning hook kick and hit the attacker. The guy fell, got up, and ran off. If you keep your feet anchored, that kick is a great kick, it has a lot of power. Jumping... maybe not so much.
As for how to get more height, lower your stance when you start and execute the kick. Try swinging your arms with you for momentum. Also place your foot when you step 180 degrees away from your target.

Hope this helps.
