Muay Thai Clinch

Clinching in Muay Thai is a very important aspect of the sport. It allows you to control your opponent and can be used to set up strikes or take your opponent down. There are many different ways to clinch, but here are some of the most commonly used techniques:

The over-under clinch is one of the most common ways to clinch in Muay Thai. To do this, you will need to get one arm over your opponent’s head (onto the back of their head) and one arm onto their opposite elbow. Once you have done this, you can then use your body weight to control your opponent, throw him off balance and set up strikes.

The collar and elbow tie is another common way to clinch. To do this, you will need to grab your opponent’s back of the neck with one hand and their elbow with the other. Once you have done this, you can control your opponent and set up strikes.

The Thai plum is a great way to control your opponent in the clinch. To do this, you will need to grab your opponent’s head with both hands and then use your knee strikes to strike their ribs. This is a very painful technique and can be used to break your opponent’s posture or take them down.

The underhook is a great way to control your opponent in the clinch. To do this, you will need to grab your opponent’s head with one hand and their arm with the other. Once you have done this, you can control your opponent and set up strikes.

The double underhook is another great way to control your opponent in the clinch. To do this, you will need to grab your opponent’s torso with both hands (putting your hands under his armpits)  and then use your knees to strike their ribs. This is a very painful technique and can be used to break your opponent’s posture or take them down.

When it comes to clinching in Muay Thai it is of utmost importance to keep your hips as close as possible to your opponent so as to not give him space to wound up his knee strikes. Also, make sure to keep your ching tucked and your head close to your opponent’s head. The last thing you want to do in a clinch is to lower your head and make it an easy target for your opponents’ knees. You also want to keep your head close to your opponents head since this will make it harder for your opponent to land elbow strikes.

These are just some of the most common ways to clinch in Muay Thai. There are many more techniques that you can use, but these are some of the most commonly used.
