I’m off in the land of Muay Thai for the week, I’ll try to keep posting from the road… Today Coach Damon of Sindayt Muay Thai London take us through a basic clinch technique. If your just starting out in Muay Thai or if you’ve just started clinching this is one muay thai technique you need to add to your arsenal asap. If you and your partner are new to clinching 9 times out of 10 they are going to crank on your neck and try to pull it down. The other move that you can count on without fail is someone trying to “bear hug” you around your lower back. This is how you defend it.
As coach Damon demonstrates… once you’ve popped yourself out don’t just stand there enjoying your hand work, follow it up with something!
