Look at the shovel hook. It's basically a tight uppercut, but resembles a hook more because of it's alignment. .

So is the shovel hook a hook, or a uppercut?

I would say its a modified uppercut, due to the upward thrust. So a modified uppercut would be a hybrid hook?

its 50% hook 50% uppercut.

if you ask me though, ide call it more of a hook. same for the uppercut, its all just different angled hooks using slightly different mechanicss with the same hooking action in mind.

just like the cross, jab, over hand, they are basicly straight attacks.

True, its simply the application and intent behind them that make them different

Oh my god Jer_sm. . .

You actually consider jab, cross and overhand the same attack?!?!?!

Their only similarities is that they travel a straight line. That's it.

But then again, you're quite new to MA, and tend to group things together to make it all easier.

The shovel hook, is NOT 50% hook, 50% uppercut.

The shovel hook is a hook. The reason why? Simple.

It doesn't start from the waist like an uppercut. The angle which it travels is 45 degree towards the target, not 90 degree up like an uppercut. The other thing is that the forearm is 90 degree parallel to the bicep. Basically, the arm is like an inverted L shape when you punch.

So the shovel hook's mechanics is basically a hook, not an upper. It looks like an upper to the un-trained eye.

Quote:

NO! ! Uppercut totally different mechanics. It's like saying straight leads and jabs are the same!!!

Ok, sorry for being grumpy, but I've been absent from the board for a day, so my mouth can't shut today.

i know they are different mechanics but like im just saying they involve the same like hooking action with the arm. and like jab cross involes extending the arm so its straight. im not really comparing body mechanics.

i dont know. im not really going technical xP
