Lightbulb Getting Started ...(Literally)

Back at UFC 68, for those who never viewed my previous thread, my ass got tossed by everyone of my friends *laughs*. Now im out for redemption lol. Anyways, to the point. Iv'e learned and practised a lot of new moves and techniques with cousins, my dad, and even took a couple of lesson's from one of my friends who went to nationals for both freeestyle and greco. Now I just want to extend my knowledge further by asking some experts online. More specifically, I want to know the best way to get started and initiate contact in a way that is both safe and favorable for getting the advantage in the clinch or other possible takedowns.

help a brother out .

For initiating the clinch always make sure that you have control of your opponent. The best way is to make sure that you get underhooks and then work for throws from there.

I'm not a wrestler, so my only real advice on shooting is to grab the legs as quickly as possible. Don't confuse yourself by thinking ahead (I do that when I shoot), just think about grabbing the legs. Once you (and me) get better, start thinking about slams and other stuff.

There is no real "safe" way to initiate contact against an agressive opponent. Just move fast and confidently towards your opponent, because if you stutter in your movement your just telling them where you're going and that's how you're going to get punched in the face or kneed in the forehead.

control the your opponenet in a progression. start by grabbing the the wrists or arms then work your way to an over or under hook or go to the head and then clinch. this way you have control of your opponnet the whole time.

ohhh SuzukS u got me all wrong man ...I can fight. Ive been in tae kwon do for 5 years, boxing for 3, and muay thai for just under 2 years now, not to mention all of the other sports ive been in and out of since i was 7. I just have literally no wrestling/jujitsu background at all. I just want to be able to carry on with my friends and slam them on thier asses for a change lol. Ive progressed a lot though compared to what i used to be. I'm just asking for u guys out there to extend my knowledge by shedding a little light to me.

try to start out in the turtle... they will be like wtf?? they will try to take your back (defend from hooks using your elbows, and cross your hands at your wrist under your chin to plam out any chokes), you pull in one of their arms and roll, turn on to you stomach and you land in side control.

i don't recommed doing this every time, but you can pull in some people that don't expect it.

the duck under. Simple and effective move. From clinch, pull arm up duck your head arm look to the sky and pass through taking the back.

create alot of misdirection by grabbing and quickly pulling his head down, try to keep his off balance then capitalize on it,if your going to shoot drive your face into their stomach otherwise your leaving yourself open for the infamous guillotine, just don't put your head on the outside of his body. you can also try a suicide roll control his head or an arm, fall back but put your leg or knee across his lower ab and as you are falling if you have your leg placed right you should end up in on top, but if you screw it up he will be in a dominant position.
Try looking on google or youtube for videos. look up guard/passing the guard and takedowns, armbars, triangles for ideas
