Muay Thai Fight – Clinch, Throws, and Sweeps

A big part of any Muay Thai Fight is clinching, throws, and sweeps… Well depending on you is fighting, but they are things that typically happen in a Muay Thai Fight. Clinching in Muay Thai is very important, it’s one of few things that can completely shut a person down if they don’t know how to defend while engaged in it. It’s also a great tool for self-defense, as a persons size doesn’t matter as much in the clinch if you know the correct techniques.

One Response to Muay Thai Fight – Clinch, Throws, and Sweeps

  1. muay thai clinch throws ?

    can you pummel and hand fight like a greco roman wrestler ?

    g-r is much like thai clinch entries… you must accept and beleave this .

    there are about five different allowed and used methods of throws from clinch .

    1)first group is over hook– plaaam. single or double collar ties.

    2)next is belly 2 belly .upper- mid- lower=back crack position

    3)mixed grip . i have called half love vs body lock full love .

    4) ***half over collar and other hand on bicept – c-grip-some will call this meat hook-swand grip . cobra grip.!!!
    this is the most desirable grip because you can stear or move into elbow and more.

    you must learn to pummel and hand fight -TRANSITION OUT OF THESE GRIPS.
    slow and light weight pressure -grippings..

    if you cant find a partner to practice with lift weights . bumbells and kettle weights- non-stop for five minute sets..
    them middel eastern wrestlers use indian clubs and spin them all about the body -over head and around for

    strength conditioning.

    GRECO clinch aids every thing about muay thai clinch..

    lets talk about CLINCH throws .

    1 ) there is a knee bump lead in to pull type throw- this is like the one bukow does.
    this is for a fast nimble fighter only. learn about push pull hand action for throws.

    2) there is a leveraged throw -fulcrum , where you place your knee aside of the opponets thigh just above the knee

    cap and pull them. YOU MAY NEED TO FORCE AND FALL DOWN ON TOP OF THEM-if fulcrum action is

    ineffective or failed..

    3) twist throw -mostly from body lock .
    4) pull down -sit down throw. MOVING FORWARD OR BACKWARD HELPS. backwards is much like a lateral

    drop but has a knee entry ..

    5) from double collar tie-plumm twist an arm and stear the apponent step direction to twist quickly and jerk

    there head down.
    the majority of the time a knee is a predesessor -lead in and PLANTED in the proper place for the next action to

    occure.
    therefore you must have and use a good round knee and PLACE it next to the opponents thigh and explode into

    you next move.

    THIS IS JUST STARTERS FOR FULL ON THAI CLINCH THROWS .
