    What do you think of these.

    I have found that in a very close environment these own. a nice vertical elbow up the chin is always great for a KO shot.

    I also like the elbow to the thigh personally, as well as hitting an opponents leg with elbow if they try and do a kick.

    What are your favorites? :wavey:

    Josh from The Ultimate Fighter hit Leben with one of those and busted his eye open enough for a stopped fight and a TKO..

    Its good if you use it right.. Works well on the ground from a clinch too.

    sorry, I take it back.

    yes elbows are major destruction in close quarters. they are basicly the most likely shot to open a cut on someone's face....

    anyone else notice the damage (whether it be pain/soreness) they get on their rotator cuff from elbow strikes?

    especially when you turn the wrist in a "look at your watch" style.

    nope, you may need to put more hips into it.

    eh? i dont see how putting more hip movement into the elbow throw has anything to do with the rotation&movement i put my shoulder through.

    Depends on how you execute the punch.

    Maybe someone is just using a poor technique which pushes alot of force down to the formentioned body parts. Or maybe there is an already injured shoulder and when doing elbow punch it just intensifys the feeling of old injury??

    I dont have any problems with my shoulders from doing elbow punches.

    or it could be that this is kind of new movement for me & hopefully myt shoulder will get used to & the soreness will go away. :x:

    Might be :)

    I only get sore if I take huge breaks from doing my work outs. Then im sore for about 4-5 days, then I stop getting sore.

    well if you don't understand the need for hip rotation when throwing any kind of striking technique with hands and arms then you need to go back to training and ask for pointers.

    if you are using your rotator cuff much, then you are throwing an elbow wrong.

    i love elbows. anything close to my body im happy with. dont like distance fights.
    if your shoulders hurt from the technique, its either wrong or your muscling it, or youre a weak fagg0t. :p

    I don't know, I've found hadukens to be pretty effective when an opponent is far away. If they're close a sonic boom takes less time to pull off which will let me combo quicker. But I fight cheap, I use the raging demon every chance I get :o
