Lead and Rear Uppercuts

The last punches to learn are the uppercuts. An uppercut is a punch that is thrown upwards instead of straight ahead (jab and straight) or looping to a side (lead and rear hooks).

Straight Right

Being the second straight punch in a boxer’s arsenal, the straight is both fast and powerful. While the technique for a jab and hooks may vary depending on style, the technique for a straight requires more emphasis.
