"To perform a clinch, the boxer loops both hands around the outside of the opponent's shoulders, scooping back under the forearms to grasp the opponent's arms tightly against his own body. In this position, the opponent's arms are pinned and cannot be used to attack."


"The person who performs a waza (技, 'technique') is known as tori (取り, literally 'taker') and the person to whom it is performed is known as uke (受け, literally 'receiver')."
