The Clinch Is Inevitable
One thing that is going to happen in any style of fighting is the clinch. Whether it be Karate, TKD, Boxing, Kickboxing, etc., after an exchange, fighters will clinch. Grappling arts like Judo, Wrestling, BJJ, etc. work off clinching. But, as I stated earlier, the striking arts will utitlize clinching. Either to protect yourself or neutralize your opponent's attack, these styles have a modified clinch tactic for that sport. If a knockout blow isn't delivered, clinching will happen. So, this means that all martial artists need to learn to use this skill and defend against it.
