10 ways to match Muay Thai elbows knees and legs

This is a sequel to Muay Thai’s fierce elbow attack, causing the opponent’s head to bleed, his vision confused, his liver burst ribs, and he fell to the ground instantly.

First, pull and fall

The other person stepped forward and hugged our waist with both hands; We immediately wrap our hands around the back of his neck or grab both shoulders and pull back forcefully (Figure 1-1). Constantly moving upwards, we quickly move backwards while pulling the opponent back, and press the back of the opponent’s neck or shoulders down with both hands, forcing the opponent’s center of gravity to rush forward, lose balance, and fall to the ground (Figure 1-2).

Second, wear armpits over the back fall

When the opponent hits us in the head with a left swing punch or a straight left fist, we quickly dodge to the left and grab the opponent’s left wrist with our right hand; Quickly turn back to the right while passing your left hand under the opponent’s left armpit and clasping his left shoulder; Then quickly lean down, raise your hips, and lift the other person on your back (Figure 2-1). Constantly moving up, our hands lean forward and pull the opponent’s left arm downwards to throw the opponent off our back (Figure 2-2).

Third, the elbow sweep kick falls

The opponent wrapped his hands around the back of our neck and hit our chest and abdomen with his knees; At this point, our upper body is quickly straightened and the elbow bones of the opponent’s elbows are lifted up with both hands, forcing their arms to straighten and not hard to clamp my neck, thereby alleviating the attack on the opponent’s knees, and at the same time hooking or sweeping the opponent’s support legs with one leg (Figure 3-1). The upward movement is non-stop, while we sweep and kick the opponent’s supporting leg with our legs, our bodies twist in the opposite direction, and with the twisting momentum, our hands pull the opponent’s arms hard and drive their upper body, forcing the opponent’s body to lose its center of gravity and fall to the ground (Figure 3-2).
