Default Elbows (1 - 7)

I have another yellow belt qualifier question and that is elbows 1-7. Is there a video or some diagrams out there where I could see the different positions? Want to make sure I have those down.

Don't remember if the old KM DVD set has it. Guess you could look on youtube probably but the books above give you detail

i had trouble keeping them straight until our instructors broke them out of the numbers and showed us the applications.

Elbows 1-3 are on a horizontal plane. (this is for referrence, not for teaching them- I am doing this to refresh your brain)
#1 is a traditional forward elbow, #2 is the side elbow & #3 is the elbow to behind you

Elbows 4-7 are on a verticle plane.
#4 is the little brother poke behind you, #5 is the upward, rear elbow (think under their chin), #6 is the upward elbow to your front, #7 is the downward elbow.

Where are you training at?

Same thing happened to me. The YouTube video I watched showed 6 and 7 the opposite of what the instructors taught us.

You guys are right 6 is an upper cut style elbow and 7 comes straight down.

don't want to be the bad guy here but if you don't know your elbow 1-7... which means that you've never seen or practice them.. maybe your not ready to take your test?!?

not a big fan of this guy on the video. I just watch the 2 choke defense videos and he says the 1 word that should not be used when describing the pluck. which is "GRAB". He keeps verbally saying and physically grabbing the hand and pulling it down which is not how I would teach it personally.

thats 2 negative posts in a row! I must of woke up on the wrong side of the bad :) I need a hug.

Just because you've seen or practiced something doesn't mean you retain 100% of it and don't need a review at test time.

I didn't bother to watch the rest... I haven't seen the other one's, but "grab" is such a bad use to use... it messes everyone up once they hear that. I don't know who he actually is. But I wasn't going to vid myself doing elbows. :-)
