Kulu-Ya-Ku main weakness is his head - so focus on it during the fights

Main attack - Rocks

The Kulu-Ya-Ku is able to dig up and equip rocks and jars as a weapon. There are two attacks to avoid by moving to the sides while the monster is holding them: a long-range one when the monster jumps with the rock and a medium-range one when the rock or the jar is being tossed at the hunter. One clever way to decrease the number of these attacks is to focus and destroy the rocks/jars on the ground. By doing that you will decrease the moveset of the monster.

Other attacks

Kulu-Ya-Ku also loves to attack by jumping towards the hunter. It gives a good opportunity to counterattack as the monster slows down for a few seconds after the jump.
