I've become a clinching and stand-up grappling fanatic over the last few months. I like kneeing people in the head

I love using my elbow too! I kiss it before i go to bed of a nightime! I also enjoy palm-heel strikes to the sternum!! YEAH BABY!

I prefer to kick and punch on the low-line.. probably cuz i'm 5'2" tall and most people are taller than me. It's great though, if I fight a person that is 5'6" or shorter, I feel tall and can play the big man game.

I have trouble kissing my elbow at night but I kiss my knees when I sleep Augus. I have a really good upper body build but, I am more in to kicking and kneeing more then punching.

Angus-when you knee someone in the head, are you leaping up and connecting, or keeping one foot on the ground and pulling them down?

I dunno how Angus does it, but I like to pull people down so I can strike their head with my knee. But I do flying knees sometimes just for fun. There are so many ways to get a person's head in a good position to knee it that I won't get into it now.

If i'm far from my oponent , i use kicks when the oponet is closer. then hand and kicks .. in close fightings knees and elbows.. Heck its better to know how to use all your weapons.
train them all.
Luck

Well, it really depends on the situation... If we're wearing headgear sometimes then i might come in with a hail of fake, fast punches and set up a wrap/pulldown - knee to the face. Sometimes i leap up if they have a small stance (like are stooping)... There's so many different ways...

In the clinching side of things i'm tend to to stand on the ball of my foot as i rise my knee up. I know it's dangerous and not very good technique but most of my clinching is self taught. I tend to pull the guy down as well.
