Muay Thai Minute – Outside Clinch Off Balance

2

In today’s Muay Thai Technique, the very capable Coach Damon Faulkner of Singdayt takes us through an off-balancing technique from the outside clinch.  For those of you who’ve been practicing you clinch you’ll understand that there is a lot of “listening” in clinching… it isn’t just what your trying to do… you’ve got to feel what your opponent is doing.  This technique is one that works best when you’re listening.  You’ll need to feel out your opponents weight, and balance. You’ll need to advantage of surprise and speed to pull this off effectively.

Happy drilling

I started My Muay Thai back in 2006... I was tired of reading about MMA, and wanted somewhere I could watch real muay thai fights, be inspired and connect with others who love muay thai as much as I do... I currently live in London... when I'm not geeking out over muay thai you can find me bombing around London on my scrambler, ferreting out the latest street food gems.

  1. I have learned this technique from a Thai trainer who taught me explicitly to step out more with your standing leg, while you sweep with your other leg. What is your view on this, please?
