Tuesday night was the penultimate hour of my client’s Basic Course on the Clinch. We revised much of the previous material, including combination work and takedown defence before I introduced the hip throw.


Training began with break-falls and rolls followed by sprawling and shadowing low level takedowns (double and single leg). We then moved onto bulling and pummelling, drilling outer reap throws, waist-lock takedowns, arm-drags, two-on-ones and suplexes.


The lesson finished with a study of the major hip throw. This technique is very common in grappling based martial arts and can be found in virtually every one to some degree or another.


Here are some very simple and clean demonstration of a no-gi hip throw:
