Fights are unpredictable, and very often they can spiral out of control. This is almost always the case when you allow your opponent to dictate the terms of the fight and he manages to get you in the clinch, and from there to an even worse position, on the ground, where every fight becomes hazardous. Best-selling Paladin author Mark Hatmaker designed the dirty boxing curriculum contained in this video with one goal in mind: to teach viewers how to get out of the clinch and bring the fight back to where they can utilize their fighting techniques to come out on top. 

In Dirty Boxing: Control the Clinch — Control the Fight, Hatmaker brings a new, unpredictable set of skills and techniques to get out of the clinch quickly and efficiently– and they are all legal. This video assumes that you have boxed before and already know the mechanics of throwing punches and kicks. Therefore, the instruction is very targeted: this material is not a general guide to clinch fighting; it is focused on using dirty boxing techniques to control the clinch. 

From the fundamentals of the proto-clinch, biceps-ride pummeling, single underhook, and Russian arm tie to the arm drag, head control, and collar-elbow techniques, Hatmaker presents his new approach to boxing in his usual unrestrained, no-nonsense way. Once added to your arsenal and trained deep into your muscle memory, all these techniques can be mixed and matched in drills that will naturally flow from one technique to the other. The next time you find yourself in a clinch, make sure you have Mark Hatmaker in your corner.


Mark Hatmaker is a lifelong student of the martial arts with more than 24 years of experience in Western boxing, wrestling, and no-holds-barred fighting. Known as "The Professor of Grappling," he is widely recognized for his pragmatic, results-oriented approach to combat training. Hatmaker conducts regular seminars across the country and can be visited at his website.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
