Today we’re gonna talk about how the 3 Elbow Strikes are used in Biu Tze.
In the last episode, we talked about the 3 elbows. In this one, I want to go over how they’re used in Biu Tze.
To understand that, I want to quickly go over the Elbow Strike part of Biu Tze.
In the Biu Tze form, when we complete an Elbow Strike, the hand, of the arm that elbows, grabs the opponent and Lop Saus. The momentum from the Lop Sau brings the opponent towards my opposite Elbow Strike or Biu Tze.
With that said, let’s go through the 3 Elbow Strikes in the Biu Tze form.
Pinning Elbow – Pin the opponent then Lop Sau, use that momentum to Pin from the outside. Then Lop Sau again to Pin from the other side. Then end with a Lop Sau on the inside to Biu Tze.
Striking Elbow – This strike is done from the inside. Right after, I go for the Lop Sau on the inside and Biu Tze.
Blocking Elbow – This is a block from the outside into a Lop Sau on the inside then Biu Tze.
As with any new ideas, I recommend testing them to see if they work for you. If they do, add them to your library of techniques. If not, discard them. Let me know how it works out for you.
