Combative Elbow Strikes: A Guide to Strikes, Blocks, Locks, and Take Downs is an in-depth analysis of the practical applications for five of the most common elbow strikes found in the martial arts.

In this book, Rosser demonstrates how an elbow strike can be used for executing blocks, joint locks, throws, take downs, chokes, pins, traps, releases, and ground fighting in addition to striking.
Illustrated with over 250 photographs, Combative Elbow Strikes presents more than 50 elbow strike applications in stand-up and ground fighting scenarios.
