Coach Mike Winkeljohn's 5 Points on the Elbow

  1. Don't Elbow with Clenched Fists - keep the Hand open
  2. Bring hand into Center fast - helps Velocity of the Elbow
  3. Hit with the Bone, not with the Muscle when you Strike
  4. Pivot/Rotate hard on Body - Body precedes the Elbow
  5. Get Opponent's arm out of the way and roll in with the Elbow ("Smother it and find a home.")
