Sample text

Today’s MMA uses four major martial arts: muay Thai, Western boxing, BJJ, and Western wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle, and Greco-Roman). Of course, there are many other martial arts used in MMA, but the abovementioned are the four major ones. Each adds to the MMA fighter’s arsenal. Muay Thai and Western boxing cover the free-movement phase and clinch phase for striking, while BJJ covers the ground phase mostly with submissions and, somewhat, with the clinch for takedowns. Finally, Western wrestling in all its variations covers the clinch phase with takedowns and the ground phase with positional balance on top.

Balance is crucial as it keeps you from being taken down easily, and breaking your opponent’s balance dramatically helps you to take him down. Leverage is important when the final action of the takedown is executed. For instance, for the sumo kimarite hip throw (koshinage) to be effective, your hips must be thrust against the front of your opponent’s hips so they become a fulcrum for the throw. This enables you to throw someone two times your size. Also mentioned earlier in chapter 2 is Mainoumi’s preference for leg-tripping techniques, as they are a very effective way of toppling a much larger opponent.

Also, part of the reason rikishi use the over-under clinch so often is because it gives them a grip closest to their opponent’s belt. This gives the rikishi maximum gripping control over his opponent. Because the over-under clinch is an easy-to-attain neutral clinch that gives the best striking protection for a neutral clinch, this clinch provides an important link between sumo and MMA. As you can gather from the illustrations in this book, sumo has many answers to the riddle of the over-under clinch—answers that send the opponent crashing to the ground.
