High Crotch from the Under Hook


The Under Hook is my favorite clinch. It can easily transition to other clinches, lots of take downs, great for MMA and striking, and easy to disengage.

The under hook allows you a very strong setup for the high crotch, without the fear of putting yourself in a crucifix. For me, it is the best high crotch setup, and I break down how to use it best on this video:
