 (Guys I need help and don't know what to do for the special fact! Please help me!)

 This is not a martial art but more a technique. Most styles use in (that I know) and its a elbow strike. So the name is quite self explanatory, you'd think it would be hitting with the help but have you even hit that bone. Yes, it would damage the other person but also hurt your bone really bad. Therefore you use the skinnier part of the forearm instead. Just for self defense don't use elbow strikes on hard parts of the body like the forehead. No, then you use a palm heel.
