The corner of the chin has always been considered in Muay as a privileged target: an elbow strike or punch that reaches that sensitive area, is an optimal solution to floor an opponent with one single shot. However, only a foolish person or someone taken by surprise exposes his chin without reason. It is therefore essential to develop a diagonal, spiralling shifting technique that allows us to hit the area of the chin when the opponent is trying to attack us in turn. A follow up spinning throw may be an efficient finishing technique.
