    Ah, Khunpon! I met him at one of my title fights (I actually fought one of his guys). I think you guys are really going to like training with him! Good luck!

It's a bit tricky to get, but if you do it puts you in a great position.

    I used to have a really good plum clinch, but haven't really worked it as much these days, otherwise we'd do a TOTW on it...
    Kid, I tried the pushing arm up and ducking move with my coach, and could not pull it off. I didn't have the leverage to lift his arm up. How do you do it?

    I asked him about the move after our clinch sparring and he said it was very hard to pull off unless your opponent is not paying attention.

    It can be a bit tricky at times but it's certainly doable. You just have to make sure to do it before they have any kind of grip on you.

    PPlate, like everything else in plum its ALL timing. If you pull someone to their left they have to put weight on their left foot and on your right shoulder. This lightens the pressure on your left side which, with excellent timing, will give you a chance to pop up their right elbow and duck under. I like to do it as part of a pulling turn. I pull them to their left as I turn to my right. Sometimes this makes them have to take a big step at that point its easy to pop up the opposite elbow and duck under.

    That's a great tip, I'll try it, thanks.

    Also, a technique we work with is rather than thinking/worrying about lifting their elbow, get your hand underneath the elbow to "brace" it in place so that as you duck under and out, your training partner/opponent can't drop their elbow down to block you or "follow" you with it as you try to break to the outside.

    You can also press inwards (towards your centerline) on their elbow, to break the "structure" of the hold and how your partner/opponent are using it to brace you in place to hold your head.
