ELBOW STRIKES IN MARTIAL ARTS
One of the most effective strikes in martial arts are elbow strikes. They're excellent for close range, they're very versatile, and they're very powerful. Another advantage is they're very safe for the person throwing them. In a bare knuckle situation, it can be very easy to break or injure your hand. This is not the case with elbows. It's a very hard bone which is both safe for you and damaging to your opponent. And one more advantage is it's great for defense. Elbows can create a sort of shell around your head sllowing you to defend yourself and at the same time, launch some serious attacks!
