Mid-air elbow strike video
Info about "Mid-air elbow strike video"
The mid-Air elbow strike (sork kra dode or jumping elbow) is a muay thai technique. The thai-boxer can use it to hit his opponent at the face or head or collar bone. The reason why this jumping elbow is extra powerful is because the elbow attack will best be performed at the point of landing that’s how the boxer’s body weight will add to the blow making the impact great.
To perform this boxing move, the boxer must start with a good bending knees jump with a good thrust from the stance. The while in the air, bend the body over to the left (if you are right handed and attempting to you the right elbow for the strike). Do the elbow attack of your choice at the point of landing. Timing is very important. Not to do it too soon or too late because the result will not be close to the same. Land with either one foot or both with the Basic Thai Boxing Stance.
Which elbow strike should you use? It can be any muay thai elbow technique but the recommended is the elbow chop which is perfect and very convenient to used even while jumping. And the sharp point of elbow together with the boxer’s weight while jumping down will create a very dreadful result to the opponent.
