You have to teach him to be gentle with other people and to hit certain things. Buy him a drum or a toy hammer and pegs or something he can hit and is allowed to hit and this should take away the urge. If he does hit somebody say no not nice and redirect him to the toys he can hit. This is a phase they all go through just try the diversion technique.
