Clinching is among the most common and essential elements in fight. Too often sportive interpretations linger in the mechanical or technical treatment of resolving the clinch without considering the most vicious resolutions, while self defense approaches focus solely on the most savage targets and strategies, without respecting and appreciating the technical demands of clinching. In this download, we begin from a basis of biomechanics, starting with a treatment of gouging and mauling and then integrating them into an efficient delivery mechanism. Attacks are not treated as "magic bullets" but rather as modifiers, that enhance a competent clinching base. The end result is a more scalable force option that can easily be modulated from a more responsible restraint tactic perspective to a truly feral clinch.
