MMA Beginner Series: Pummeling

The most common clinch people will find themselves in is the Over Under position. It is a neutral tie up, meaning both fighters have the same exact position.

While there are plenty of options from this clinch, often times fighters will jockey for better position by “pummeling” – the process of digging an under hook on their over hook side. The goal is to get double under hooks, which will allow for a body lock, which gives access to many big throws and trips.

Pummeling is a bit like dancing. There is full body coordination required to complete the dance properly. In this video, we go over the drilling style of pummeling, which is a fluid motion, and the actual art of pummeling, which is a bit more erratic and staggered.

To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.
