Double Side Elbow Strike - Written Instructions & Video

This page focuses on the Double Side Elbow Strike. This martial arts elbow strike is used in some kata, poomsae & forms and for breaking demonstrations. Unlike the single arm side elbow strike, the double side elbow strike is rarely used in self-defense situations.

For other elbow strikes (i.e. spinning elbow strike), please visit the main Elbow Strikes section.

Instructions for Technique

  • Cross both arms with your hands near your shoulders.
  • Thrust both elbows sideways.
  • Hit the targets with the point of your elbows (i.e. break a wooden board with each elbow).
