Clinch on Conservative Opponent

If in a street fight situation, your opponent is moving towards you, but never commits to an attack, and the altercation is indeed on, then it's time to do the Conservative Clinch.

After 2 steps towards you, on the third one, you shoot in with your arms covering your face (with a  little hole to see) in case a strike might come, bash into their chest, then clinch them. Right Arm around their back, left hand grabbing the right wrist to secure it. Be sure to keep your head against their chest, and your hips in close. Keep your legs apart and knees slightly bent, maintaining a stable base that allows for movement. Do not cross your feet. 

After you establish a solid clinch, you wait for one of the indicators on how you will take them to the ground.
