Step 1 of the Muay Thai clinch.

Muay Thai Basics by Christoph Delp/ Blue Snake Books
It is important to note that there is more than one way to grip when setting up the Muay Thai clinch. This tutorial outlines the basic clinch.

The first step to setting up the basic Muay Thai clinch is gripping. In sum, it's important to grip or grab hold of an opponent's neck with only one hand to start off. Attempting to take hold of your opponent with both hands at the same time will leave you off balance and susceptible. Begin pulling your opponent's head toward you.
