Dear SW List, Katrien, Kristof, Stefan...
Thank you for this question, Katrien and Kristof, and welcome to the 
SignWriting List!

There are several ways to write elbow movement hitting the side of the 
body. Please see the attached diagram. Any one of the four examples are 
fine, so you need to choose...Thank you, Stefan, for example number 4!! 
  Val ;-)
