The Muaythai Clinch - Malaipet instructional DVD
I picked up this video recently as I've been trying to expand on my knowledge of the muaythai clinch (it's very difficult to find good instruction on clinching). This video is excellent as far as instructionals go. In the DVD there's a nice variety of techniques ranging from the basics of securing and breaking the clinch (with a few details I didn't know), defense, elbows, and (my favorite) throws/take downs from the clinch.
Each technique is broken down and very nicely described to give a clear idea of the fundamental details used. Everything is simple and understandable and can be easily applied with a partner, but there is a lot of good stuff in there that I think most muaythai practitioners would benefit from. I have a pretty solid clinch game (as it's one of my major strong points) and I found this video very helpful and informative.
I highly recommend this DVD to anyone looking to expand on their knowledge of the muaythai clinch.

Do they cover knees to the thighs? I've been playing around with those a lot lately and having decent success, but I'm sure there's more to know about them.

kneeing the leg isnt really something you see much of in thai fighters. TBH when ive been kneed in the legs in fights it hasnt done **** and im not sure it scores much either.
sounds like a good DVD i absolutely love the clinch, but i need to learn some more throwing techniques

Yeah muaythai throws are the whole reason I was interested in this video as it's been one of the biggest things I've wanted to learn and never really have. The throws in this video are great, and learning the fundamentals of a few different throws makes it much easier to figure out other throws on your own.

Don't have enough time to go through the clinch part of it yet but finding the dvd interesting so far.
Have any of you had success checking low kicks like that? I've always been taught to keep the leg's angle to 90 degrees. I could see Malaipet's version causing more damage to their shin.
And the headkick block shown after this is how you properly catch headkicks? I've always wondered how to do this without getting my head kicked off."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."
