MMA Tip: The Plum
The plum drill is a great way to take your opponent off balance and to set them up for a knee strike while you are in the clinch. The concept here is to brace your hands around your opponent’s neck, hands overlapped never interlocking fingers, and to press your forearms against their head. As you do this, you want to take a 90 degree steps with your rear leg and whip your opponent around.
This whipping turn will help remove his defense brace if he’s trying to push against your hips and if your opponent is charging this is highly effective at redirecting them and setting them up for the knee strike.
