I suppose you can start with a roundhouse, then bring it back for a hook. Seems like a natural thing to do.
We usually just bring the leg out and hook back into the target.
I wish that I was fast enough with my hook kick to use it by it self. I was only able to use it sandwiched between roundhouse kicks.
I was able to use the hook kick in a spinning manner with some success. It was a powerful technique that I had a little trouble controlling.
Ah!!Yesteryear.All this talk about hook kicks and spinning kicks makes me look back at the old days when I was banging it out in the tournaments. Oh well, we live in the present.I enjoy the arts more now than I did when I was chasing trophies.
