    First off I think the Monkey defense is garbage, body is wide open, your fighting blind, if fighting MT your set up perfect for leg kicks......... just my opinion!

    To answer your question: as you turn towards your left side (coiling up) lift up your right shoulder (like a shrug) and move your left elbow (while your hands are still high) down to your waist. Then from that position (you should be coiled and loaded for the left) violently drop your right elbow towards right hip and let your left shoulder roll forward extending the hook........... likely to the body, otherwise it is more of an overhand left.

    Hope that helped!
