Tag Archives: Muay Thai Clinch

The muay Thai clinch is a two-handed clasp around the back of the head. A fighter uses it to pull the opponent's chin down to his chest, weakening his postures and making the opponent easier to manipulate. The clinch interlaces the fighter's two hands around the opponent's head and squeezes his two forearms along the opponent's neck. The muay Thai clinch is the preferred position to throw knee strikes from, although it's possible to transition into a takedown, as well. It also thwarts any attempts by the clinched opponent to execute takedowns.
