How to Use Your Elbows to Strike

Elbows to Strike

Elbow techniques, there are a couple of ways of explaining elbow techniques. There is the close quarters technique. In tai boxing I try to define the word of elbow more as the very very tip of the elbow. This is the forearm, this is the elbow. This is the striking point you want to use in tai boxing. A lot of times you’ll see in a tai boxing fight you’ll see two guys moving, you’ll see his arm do this, then you’ll see the other guy is bleeding. What happened? It’s not so much of a big forearm smash, it’s more of the boom right at the edge.
