I would ask him how you can throw your left hook better to not open yourself up. It doesnt make sense that he would tell you not to throw your best punch. Maybe he just meant to not throw as much?

It doesnt sound like hes trying to change your style, it sounds more like hes trying to improve your technique.
Charlie Goldman saying you make a tall fighter look taller and a short fighter shorter.Charlie Goldman was one of the best boxing trainer ever.
