This week, our krav maga instructor, Amy Winters, demonstrates an elbow strike. Elbow strikes are great self-defense techniques for a close up attack.
- Bring hand to shoulder with elbow out
- Swing arm out horizontally
- Aim to hit target with your arm just below tip of the elbow
- Back heel lifted off the ground
- As you swing your elbow, bring power through hips and shoulders
- Recoil into fighting stance
Check out the video to see Amy show us the elbow strike.
