We had some time the other day to shoot some clinch stuff the guys were working on and it turned out great! Not only that but the guys had a great time practicing it. Now it might look pretty rough to the untrained eye but I assure you that we built this up slowly and safely making sure everyone was comfortable falling and had a partner they could trust.
That said, this is a classic Muay Thai Clinch move and if you watch some Thai fights it will likely come out if the clinch happens… and it is a great move for self defence, one of the things that we focus on at Arashi Do North.
This particular clinch move doesn’t focus on too many strike to set it up but that doesn’t mean you can’t do a few knees to distract and off balance your opponent. This is one of the reasons it makes it a great move for self defence, it doesn’t take much to make it work well. We even had some brand new guys in the back of the video that were able to do it on their first day.
With the great weather we have been having this summer you would think class sizes are small, but they have been great. We do have room for a few extra bodies on the mat and if you would like to learn some cool moves like this or build your confidence while learning to defend yourself then this is the place for you.
