Monday night’s lesson took my couple clients to hour four of their Muay Thai clinching course. We focused on entries into the clinch. This began with the simple jab entry. However, I made a particular emphasis on half-shelling with one arm to maintain protection on the way into the clinch. We looked at taking the clinch on the inside and the outside, use of the hips and the all-important positioning. After jabbing looked at combining the long-guard/pawing jab with a slashing elbow to break down a guard before moving into angled lock-off position for diagonal knee strikes.
