This video highlights Singdam O Aukritt’s excellent use of the knee bar against Yodkhunpon Sittraiphum.
Yodkhunpon is a lanky clinch fighter with devastating elbows and knees; but, of course, he first needs to get into range before he can use them.
Singdam had a perfect game plan waiting for Yodkhunpon; every time Yod got in close, Singdam would place his shin across Yod’s body to act as a spacer between him and his opponent.
This technique nullified Yodkhunpon’s attacks and gave Singdam the opportunity to land some knees and elbows of his own.
Singdam uses the technique right after he throws a kick or a knee to act as instant protection against counters.
A truly excellent display of defence against a clinch fighter.
