Well I've been training boxing for quite a while now and I find it really hard to defend hooks I use peekaboo style..
I can easily slip quick jabs but hook. I cannot differentiate jab/cross from hooks. When they hook I feel as if a jab is coming and I try to slip to side which gets me hit..
I kind of don't like the idea of defending hook with hand it still hurts..
Sometimes I try to duck under hook but it still touches the top of my hear which gets me off balance..
