arnt allowed to strike downward elbows (from 12 to 6)
becaus then you can use your weight+gravity and get extremlt devestating force.
But you are allowd to strike downwards if you are lying on the ground, by that I mean striking from the head towards your feet (9 to 3)
a commonly misunderstood rule...
