Forward Elbow Strike

A forward elbow strike can be devastating when delivered with a sharp twist of the waist, (which increases its power). In close fighting, elbow strikes can be delivered in rapid-fire succession knocking aside everything in their path. There are four basic angles of attack: straight, upward round, and downward.

Although most students practise forward elbow strikes with a clenched fist, an open hand allows for greater speed and power while the elbow is travelling toward the target. This is because a clcnchcd fist has the tendency to make the arm tense, thus slowing down the movement.
