'move' is the definition.
(I know that hook is a type of shot)

'satisfied after call to stop attacking' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'call' could be 'ho' (historical exclamation used to attract attention) and 'ho' is located in the answer.
The remaining letters 'ok' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't understand.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for hook that I've seen before include "Curved piece of metal - boxing punch" , "Short swung boxing blow" , "Prostitute" , "Boxer's punch" , "By . . . . or by crook - whatever it takes" .)
