Clinching Arm Lock Off Balancing Technique ft. Petchboonchu

When you are locked inside of the clinch there are a number of techniques you can utilize against your opponent. Many techniques focus on off balancing your opponent, which can open up space for you to throw a knee strike. In my last video with Petchboonchu, he demonstrated an effective arm trap that you can use to execute a knee strike.

While your opponent is fighting for better arm position, you can take advantage of a strong lock by using this off balancing technique.

Sweeps are more embarrassing to a fighter, but they do not hurt when you get thrown on the ground. A big part of clinching is the constant battle for a...
