It's a boxing-based bent arm, horizontal, outside-in curved punch directed to the head (jaw) and body (ribs, liver, spleen). It is executed with either hand in the lead and rear positions.

The hook punch can be thrown parallel to the ground or at a variation of angles, depending on the opponent's position.
