    All of the boxing gyms I have trained at try to teach you to avoid the clench. So my question is, How would I incorporate this into my routine? Is there a way I can add it into my handmitt workouts or something?

    Get with one of your partners and just spar while in the clinch, attacking and defending. The defense is pretty much the same as if you were out of the clinch. It'd probably be a good idea to also do some drills that you create to of the top of your head for it. Keep your head near or to the side of your oppenents head and you'll be alright.

    Check out Jens Pulver's instructionals on dirty boxing and the clinch. Really good stuff. Gives you all the basics you need to start experimenting on your own.

    Thatnks for the feedback, I definately will try that during sparring, and I will order Jens' vid, I saw it for sale in a century martial arts catalog a while back.

    Best way on your own is to go in nice and tight with a nice heavy bag or a slam man, but working with a real partner is so much better.

    if you box, you can punch in a clinch. they won't stop it unless both people are not moving. but that doesn't mean u should get desperate and throw pittypatty punches. if u wanna fight off a clinch, make sure there is hip space or some space in between you and the opponent.

    Yea, the Jens Pulver stuff is on DVD. My friend has it, but I do not know where he found the stuff. Search the net a bit.

    Mark Hatmaker who does the No Holds Barred Fighting books is putting out a clinch book. THink he said Fall 06 though. His NHB: Savage strikes book has some clinch work in it as well. If you dont have any of his books i highly reccomend them, they have halped me more than any other book i have read. His NHB: Savage Strikes book is my favorite. Also on the first of the month he is putting out another book in his NHB line dedicated to takedowns. At $12 a book you cant go wrong.

    in our gym we practice dirty boxing (clinch work) every sat. i think it is a essential part of the fight game. if someone is a better boxer then you( for whatever reason), then the clinch, and transitions from the clinch are the way to go.

    I think the main question is,
    why do they tell you to avoid the clinch?

    this isn't the answer you want people to say, but it's b/c it's stalling.
