Default Do you hook off a jab?

was just messing around on the bag and while doing so, throwing hooks off a jab ( south-paw right jab, right hook). It feels very unnatural to me and was wondering if anyone here likes throw this type of combination. If so, is it useful to you.

Yes, I do.

What you always wanna keep in mind is to keep your footwork straight, your front foot is directing the punch.

all the time. it gets some people to cover their face with their gloves, and then you just hook around their gloves and knock their head sideways. classic move.

I'm comfortable doing it from my natural southpaw stance, but I have not really gotten comfortable doing it from my adopted orthodox stance, I'm not sure if I ever will be. I can do it, but it doesn't feel good or natural.

I can do it great southpaw as my right hand is much quicker than my left. But I don't box in the orthodox stance. When I try it with my left hand in front, I feel that I take too much time to set up the hook and leave myself open for a counter.

Anything I can do to help that? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
