Cecil Burch explains how he has evolved the way he teaches establishing a clinch when fighting in extreme close quarters. Cecil explains the difference between reaching out to try to get into a control position, and using your entire body to establish proximity and then get into a clinch. By keeping your elbows close to the body, you make it harder for your attacker from being able to reverse your attempt to control him.
