Last week during our Clinch Q & A, we received several good questions.
The first question was from Lou Dobb. He asked,
What is the best way to get out of the Thai clinch?
I just put together a video response showing how to escape the Muay Thai clinch with one of my favorite defenses.
Some things to keep in mind:
- Always have a good base. If you let your head come down, you won’t have an escape, and it will be practically impossible to prevent him from kneeing you.
- Once you’re in position to escape, make sure to drive your shoulder forward so that you can break the clinch or have room to pummel in.
Give it a shot and tell me how it works for you below.
