The clinch is essential to standing grappling. From a separated stand-up position, a clinch is the result of one or both grapplers applying a clinch hold, a process which is known as clinching or closing the distance. The process of attempting to advance into more dominant clinch positions is known as pummeling.
Half guard is a ground grappling position where one combatant is lying on the other, with the bottom combatant having one leg entangled. Sometimes the bottom combatant is said to be in half guard, while the top combatant is in a half mount. The half guard is the position that is in between a full guard and side control or full mount. The combatant on top will try to unentangle the leg and obtain side control or mount, while the bottom combatant will try to transition into a full guard or alternatively attempt a sweep or submission. The combatant on top is however in a better position, and can strike or attempt submission holds, although not as well as in side control.
