Standing Elbows

Does anybody else like to throw standing elbows?
I have found them pretty effective and a lot of guys don't seem to be ready for them like they are a punch.

I wish I could upload video and show you an example but instead I will try to explain.
If I am holding my fists up like a normal fighting stance I like to bring my right elbow sort of up and to the left all in one swift motion and it usually lands chin / left eye.

Sometimes I will even toss in a plain old cross elbow if I am in close enough.

I definitely like throwing short elbows from inside the clinch, or when getting out of it.

Yes I love throwing elbows, especially when you get a hold of the back of the person's head and pull it into the elbow.

I actually really like them within the clinch. Just quickly pushing away with one arm... throw the elbow with the other... and return right to the clinch. I always find it kinda hard to practice elbows though.

To be honest I have never used elbows standing in front of my opponent, i have been held around the waist with the person behind me and elbowed the hell out of them.

I generally try and stay away from the clinch and fight on the outside because of my long reach (79.5inches) but in the clinch I tend to hug my opponent and put my left leg beside their right leg and twist and fall with them and gain top position, that or I rock left and right voilently and throw hooks like their going out of style.

But I imagine if your good at throwing them and you can land them, it would be a very affective strike.
