in the clinch


when two fighters are at all locked by the grip of one or both individuals, attempting to maintain the inner grip is imperative.  this will aid in both defense and improve leverage and any opportunities for a throw.  elbows are also useful here; with one hand maintaining an inside grip on your opponent’s shirt you can maintain a modicum of defense while simultaneously having striking opportunities.  not to be tried with friends, elbows hurt.
