    uppercut in clinch...

    today at my boxing gym i was training with the muay thai trainer for a free class today, basicly he was teaching me punches, elbows, knees, and kicks, then i asked him what if my opponents get me in the clinch not the other way around thats when he told me to either outwrestle them or try to find a time when the clinch is loose and throw an uppercut in

    it sounded pretty nice and seems logical but then i never tried it and would like to hear some experience with the uppercut in clinch

    thanks all

    I think uppercuts are pretty hard to make work, if you do them wrong you are opening yourself up to alot of trouble. You do it right however and you can really rock somebody. I however dont think they are worth the gamble, I blame rocky for making them overpopular. Hitting to the body is a much better idea IMO.

    They work from the clinch. Just dont try to sit there and trade uppercuts for knees.

    In MMA they're taught as dirty boxing techniques made famous by Randy Couture. I have 2 boxing coaches in the gym and they have no idea how to teach it and we have guys from the pit come down and they don't teach it. I personally don't know how to teach it correctly but after watching it done successfully I would add it to my arsenal if I could get somebody to teach it correctly (when, where, how).

    It can be a big mistake in a muay thai match with elbows. This assumes that the guy clinching you is good at elbows.

    Yes, elbows and knees hurt more than uppercuts from the clinch.

    I've seen it used effectively in the clinchup from bloody noses to knockouts, and many fighters don't know how to capitalize on the defending side of it. can't really give much advice about it.

    Here's why I don't like it; if you throw a uppercut, your guard is down on that side and you're open to a hook. In my last cage fight the guy kept covering up when I threw hooks, and when I Thai clinched and let go on one side to throw an uppercut he slap-blocked it down.

    On the bag if I throw an uppercut out of old habit, I immeaditely take the arm I uppercutted with and forearm block to that side and simultaneously fire a straight with the other arm.
