In my Goju class the other day we worked on techniques that were good on the inside. The elbow is a tool that everyone should keep ready to bust out in self-defense.Lets face it in tight spaces one needs all the "fight stopper" techniques at ones disposal.If you train your core right the elbow to the head can be a devastating technique that can save your bacon in a tight spot.This is a technique that seems simple, but one must link the whole torso with the lower body to get the power to make it work best.Being light on your feet is great for reactions and dodging techniques, but when inside one must set their feet to link the whole body. This way the elbow strike can do the most damage.
I was just wondering if many of you out there trained using your elbows?
