The Rear Horizontal Elbow Strike
The rear horizontal elbow strike is primarily effective when being attacked from the rear. The strike is used to stun the aggressor and allow for follow-on techniques.
The striking surface is 2 inches above or below the point of the elbow, depending on your angle of attack, the aggressor’s attack angle, and the position of the aggressor.
Target Area of the Body
The primary target area of the body is the aggressor’s body at the level of your elbow.
~ From the basic warrior stance, look over your shoulder to acquire your primary target.
