    Muay Thai Clinch

    On a Muay Clinch you should keep hands on the crown of the head right?
    also my instructor was'nt really clear on where my head should be during a clinch, can someone specify?

    any other info on the Muay Clinch would also be nice. You know, throws from the clinch, tactics for the clinch, anything clinchy.

    You want to pull their head towards your shoulder when you clinch, your head should be to the side (you don't want to pull the guys skull into your face). Also remember to keep your forearms close together and your elbows tight with your forearms pressing against their collar bone. Before you start worrying about throws or tactics, really work the basics of getting a tight clinch, keeping a solid posture, and "swimming" effectively.

    pinch your elbows, pull their head into your chest, hands on the crown of their head.

    Also, Kid is right. Learn to clinch effectively and swim in and out of the clinch before worrying about everything else.
