(Level: Beginner)
This video will demonstrate a very unique aspect of Muay Thai, how to fight in the clinch. Many people consider Muay Thai a form of kickboxing, but the clinch, which involves grappling to control the opponent’s head and scoring points with knees, elbows and sweeps, is not part of the majority of kickboxing competitions. To prepare for our clinch work, we warm up with knees and arm movements. And then move on to proper technique for controlling the head and review the two different types of knees practitioners may use to score points in the clinch. For these drills, it is very helpful to have a training partner and proper equipment is recommended at all times.

The focus in shadow boxing should always be proper form and practitioners are welcome to pause their imaginary fight and repeat a given technique or combination as many times as it takes for it to feel comfortable.
