Analysis of Krobsud’s Elbow KO
Krobsud drowned his Rakchart in the clinch.
The clinch is one of the most unique aspects of Muay Thai. In no other stand up style is there such a focus on such a small range. Though boxing does cover the clinch to some extent, it doesn’t nearly have as much range to it as Muay Thai. This elevates Muay Thai’s value and support of how complete of a striking art it is.
However, given the uniqueness of the clinch, many find training it difficult or downright frightening. However, of course, all things are frightening when we know nothing about them. If your clinch knowledge is not extensive, do not fret. If your clinch knowledge is extensive, don’t be bored. The below Evolve MMA video will break down Krobsud’s elbow KO of Rakchart, and it will have knowledge for both the novice and the expert to chew on:
