what exactly do you use the clinch for in kickboxing? so does that mean you use knees? I always thought that kickboxing didn't use the clinch because you were only allowed to use you legs(kicks) and hands (boxing). In Muay Thai you are able to use hands(boxing), elbows, knees, and legs(kicks).

Thailand's doing it's best to bring Muay Thai and MMA together.
That kind of goes along with what I've heard many Muay Thai fighters say "the only belt or sash you get is earned in the ring". Hopefully I'll get mine sometime in the future.....

Started training maybe a month ago. Man, it's intense, there are days when I'm like "Oh man, if this class doesn't end soon, Imma going to throw up"...and I thought my cardio was decent since I play hockey.

At my school, we do have the arm bands (called Prajieds I think?), but I think it's more broken up into beginner, intermediate and advanced classes rather than the arm bands.

No, basically its just to rest and keep from getting hit same as when a boxer clinches his opponent. But what I meant was I am learning muay thai now and bjj. There is a BIG difference!
