The Shovel Hook is the punch that comes in between the hook and the uppercut. The baseball analogy would be a slider. I like to target the liver with this punch. Make sure to drive your fist through your opponent in order to compress the liver to cause the desired effect.
3 Hooks: Short Hook, Mid-Range Hook and Long Range or “Overhand”. You would use these hooks when you’re at different distances from your opponent. Your Virtual MMA Coach David Alexander
I made this for my FreeMMASchool.com site, but it also works great to win a street fight. Double chin jab or “wedge” your hands to the chin of your opponent while taking space (moving forward) which will cause them to stand tall and open up for a knee strike to the pelvic plexus. After you land this strike, a takedown will be very easy. By your Virtual MMA Coach David Alexander
Your “under” arm hand needs to be on top of the “over” arm wrist in order to secure a rear naked choke when your opponent strips the “under” arm hand away.

How to throw a power uppercut or power 5 or power 6. Also how to throw an uppercut like Mike Tyson (see me and Mike on the Pictures page). The trick in throwing a powerful uppercut is in the body coil and legs. You need to wind up like a spring and uncoil driving up through the legs and finally the power coming out the fist. Try it in your next sparring match and see if you feel the added power. Be Different — Train Smart! By your Virtual MMA Coach David Alexander
Have you ever watched Manny Pacquiao fight? What a great experience and opportunity to learn. If you could have his boxing expertise transferred to MMA you would definitely have an advantage over the amateurishly skilled boxers in MMA. Here is a punch that I watch him do that people are not commenting on. Here is one of his secret weapons. Watch some YouTube vids of Manny P. and see if you notice when he throws this punch. He pretty much lands it at will. Try it in your next fight or sparring match and let me know how it goes in the comments section. Be Different — Train Smart! By your Virtual MMA Coach David Alexander
