It is actually another fancy Thai name to describe this Muaythai technique. Yotha Kluen Tap is what we all know today as a straight elbow to defend or escape. Some of you might already know well about this move but let’s review it again right here. By the way, add me to your friends facebook account now or you can now follow my work in Twitter.
This is our 19th Thai Boxing Elbow Technique so far. Don’t forget to come back to check out the following Muay Thai Boran lesson right here in this blog.
Back to the topic! Yotha Kluen Tap or a Straight Elbow is a technique used either for defense or escape. Starting by using the left elbow, the boxer bends his left arm, making sure that the tip of his left fist is pointed to the direction of the other arm. The right arm, on the other hand, assumes a forehand position, with the tip of the fist pointed to the back. Before executing the move, the body needs to be twisted slightly to the right side. Both elbows are then thrown with an extreme force to strike the opponent’s Adam’s apple or chin. Keep in mind to keep your guard tight and high, keeping your wrists at eyebrow level while you are performing this thai boxing technique. The reason is as well to avoid being given an elbow attack.
Let’s see how it’s done when your opponent is attacking or defending you with this move.
To the attack: Move backwards with a quite far enough distance to avoid the elbow and knee attacks.
To the defense: Deliver a strong kick aiming to the boxer’s chest area and immediately follow it up with another technique.

We are back with Muay Thai Boran methods and this is another Muay Thai Cherng Sok or Thai Boxing Elbow techniques. There are plenty of them and it would be awesome if you know all of them by hard to help you improve your boxing skills. Even though you are more interested in kick boxing, knowing a little bit of Muay Thai will also help improve your kickboxing techniques or adapt one of your own.
The technique we are talking about is called Sudan Nake. Now, do not panic with the weird Thai name. Sudan Naka is how to throw the elbow to the back used for defense. Finding it more interesting now? Let’s see below how to use it properly.
This Muaythai elbow move is generally used for defense, especially when you are caught in a position where your opponent initiates an attack and places his head under your armpit. Get the picture? If his head is caught under your left armpit, quickly position your left foot between your opponent’s feet and shift your body to the left, then push his head downwards. At the same time, try to make your opponent lose his balance by using your knee to hit his knee. And while you are pushing his head down, deliver to his face a swinging back elbow striking the target.
Now are how to deal with the attack and the defense of this Thai Boxing technique. Pay attention!
To the Attack: Carefully cover your face to protect it from an oncoming elbow hit. It will be tough though.
To the Defense: Use the boxer’s moves described in Kwang Sabad Na or Shakes Elbow (See my previous article on Muay Thai Cherng Sok), as the opponent would assume an almost similar stance. Attempt to push your head out, free the arm and use it to strike the boxer’s knee. You can follow this move with an elbow punch to the boxer’s face.

But if you find these Muay Thai equipment here interesting, you can go straight to the shop and choose the color and style you prefer by clicking on the link on the right hand side or on the product’s links right under each photo.
The first of my favorite product is this pair of handwraps by Twins Special. They are handmade of cotton that can guarantee the comfort while wearing. They nowadays come with hooks fasteners and thumb loops perfect for your fists. Blue is my favorite color. Check them out! There are choices of different colors that you can choose.

Next item I chose to talk about today is Ankle Supports. Nationman is well-known for those. Great for sparing or training. They are made of Poly/Cotton blend make them thick and durable. They got elastic textile to make them fit for everyone. Try these ankle supports by Nationman and I am sure you won’t make a wrong decision.
Ok, now we come to the last protection gear I would really recommend you to have one in your Muay Thai collection. It is a Head Guard. This head guard is also another product from Twins Special. So no need to talk about the quality, it is just awesome. Last time I check, Raja Boxing, another famous Muay Thai manufacturer, has sent out more colors and styles of headguards that I think you may also like. Don’t forget to check those out too.
Alright, thank you for reading my article guys. See you next time.
Welcome back guys! I’m continuing today with the next Muay Thai Cherng Sok or Thai Boxing elbow techniques. There are all together 24 of them and we have learned about it for almost 20 of them now…only a few more to go. I hope you find these free Muay Thai lessons interesting. You can now follow my articles in Facebook or Twitter.
Today’s Lesson is called Chang Prasan Nga. Don’t care about the Thai name that much. The Muay Thai move is basically a technique of using both elbows at the same time. And let me tell you, this thai boxing move is not that easy to perform. Let’s see below how to do it.
The Muay Thai elbow technique is used for attacking, defending or escaping. It is quite similar to another Muay Thai Boran technique called Chuey Khang (which is a flying knees kick) that I will put it here after I finish talking about the elbows techniques. The difference is that in the latter, the knees are the main weapons while here, Chang Prasan Nga, the boxer will be using the two elbows while jumping in the air with a single knee strike to the opponent’s abdomen.
To the attack: The opponent should step back as quickly as he notices the boxer is preparing for the two elbows attack. This will put him to make a fall short of the target. The boxer’s elbows can also be blocked with the left arm while the boxer’s knee is deflected with the right arm.
To the defense: The opponent can use his right foot to hit the boxer’s knee or solar plexus and induce him to lose his balance. This method should immediately be followed by another hit, for example, a front elbow strike or a straight punch.
Hope you find this article useful. I need your feedback. So feel free to comment. You can also suggest me what you want to know about Muay Thai. It can be anything. I will do my best to keep my articles interesting and useful to every boxer. Thanks for reading them.
