Lightbulb Elbow Technique

Ok I have been doing Mauy Thai for about 2 weeks now. I go to a boxing gym and do it about 3 times a week. I reccently learned how to throw elbows and after 30 min of praticeing them on a thai bag I split open my skin and now have a nickle size scab.

I watched some youtube vids on proper technique and they teach to just hit and snap back. I seemed to be racking my elbow.

My question is what is the proper technique and what is a good way to wrap my elbow so I can keep praticeing? Or should I just let it heal.

Just let it heal and consider it part of the necessary body conditioning.

Drive your strikes into the thai bag, not across it.

Good luck!

Elbows are tricky, especially for newbies. Often times when practicing elbows on a heavy bag you will skim the bag and rip your skin off. It is best if you can have someone hold thai pads for you. The problem here is if you or the pad holder are new to muay thai/elbows, you have to be careful not to hit your partner with a wild elbow. Also one of those hook and uppercut bags that is mounted to the wall is perfect for elbows if a partner is not around. Or if you only have a heavy bag then try hitting into the bag just like the post above mentioned. Have fun with those elbows and let the scab heal over before throwing more.

make sure your very close to the bag when you throw elbows so it hits flush and doesn't skim it. also you want to be elevating it slightly so its coming down as it connects, you get more power that way.
