Turning Elbow Strike
( 팔굽 돌려치기 palgup dollyeo chigi )
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
Forearm is folded inwards towards the body and the strike is delivered with the outside of the forearm or elbow. Remember to use the twisting of your upper body to generate more power for the Elbow Strike and keep a firm stance for balance. Muscles are activated in a precise sequence to maximize the force generated. Strikes should generally be thrown with some measure of shifting body weight supporting the blow, as opposed to just the striking arm or leg.
