How to Execute an Elbow Strike Combination in Kickboxing

    • 1). Begin by facing the dummy in a staggered stance at arm’s length. For a right-handed person this means your torso should be directly facing the dummy with your left foot forward and your right foot at the rear. Keep your fists balled and up to cover your face and upper chest. Ideally the dummy is roughly your own height or slightly less and includes a fully structured skull. It should be on a weighted base with a spring column to allow it to rock back and forth with the impacts it’s meant to receive.

    • 2). Take a long step forward with your right foot, putting it in line with the dummy’s midline. Lower your body down onto your legs as much as you can while hunching your upper torso down slightly. It’s important to get below the shoulder level of the dummy to generate the maximum amount of force this strike combination can create. Even though you are hunching make sure to keep your head up and eyes on the dummy to develop this as a good habit.

    • 3). Fold your right arm at the elbow, keeping your fist around shoulder level and your elbow pointed toward the ground.

    • 4). Drive upward with your legs, straightening them as well as your torso. As you do so pull your arm up as hard as you can in a vertical line. Your right fist should just pass your right ear as your elbow strikes the dummy at the base of its chin and drive upward as far as possible. The point of impact should not be the elbow itself, but the length of hard bone just below the elbow. This is the hardest and most unyielding part of the human arm and should hit with as much impact as a swung hammer.

    • 5). Stand fully upright, allowing the dummy to rock back. Raise your right elbow to point into the air. As the dummy swings back toward you pull your elbow down as hard as you can while folding downward as if you were falling to your knees. Remember to pull forward and down with your back as well. You should strike the dummy’s head just behind the crown on the top of the skull. The point of impact should be the underside of the elbow, the flat of bone about two inches above the joint.

    • 6). Take a step back with your right foot and resume your staggered stance to complete the combination strike.
