The Art of Combat Kinetic Linking
You can Absorb the effective and discard the limited, like the icons of fighting innovators before us.
What we Absorb?
Turning or Spinning
After getting the strict fundamentals of the movement find whatever’s comfortable for you without sacrificing speed and accuracy.
Think of the beginning of a turning or spinning kick start with that, find the target and line the center with your lead arm or just off the outside of the target. Turn throwing the tight elbow. Step forward with the lead to the outside high guard force the twist from the waist and hips keep the legs planted not stepping through, unless you’re throwing a spinning elbow which in that case spin throw it like you’re throwing a spinning heel kick. That’s a big distinction to make. Land the elbow then unravel back if throwing a turning elbow coming back to your base or throwing shots on top of the elbow.
Over the top
Think of an Axe kick with the elbow. You can combine it with an upper elbow and then convert it to the downward striking elbow. The movement is literally a upper elbow in reverse instead of going up it comes down. This will be a cutting elbow more so than a KO blow. In the gif above is Elbow master Kenny’s throwing a lackadaisical elbow but for the over the top you want to dramatically increase that arc hes throwing so its coming as close to coming straight down with your hand almost touching your chest.
