Here are the key points

  1. Get a simple collar tie in the clinch to initiate the move
  2. Reach across the neck and use a pull/rip motion to begin a spinning movement
  3. Drive the rotation by back stepping out with the leg on the same side as the collar tie
  4. Keep hold of the collar tie while you prepare to strike with the opposite elbow
  5. Use the rotation to generate momentum into the elbow strike

This move could be used in most striking sports that allow elbow strikes including MMA.
