Today’s AKA Thailand Muay Thai technique will be about how to throw knees. One of our head Muay Thai trainers, Kru Bird, will show how to execute this simple, yet devastating, technique. We use the word ‘devastating’ because if you look at most noses that have received a knee, they are usually destroyed.
The technique, for all intents and purposes, is pretty easy to do. When this technique becomes lethal is when it is used in a fight and timed perfectly. Champions have been made in Muay Thai, Kickboxing, and MMA thanks to this technique.
Kru Bird shows us the most basic of knees in the instructional video. There are obviously a multitude of ways to perform the move but we want to focus on the bare bones. This is the basic technique for those who are just starting out or want to hone their own style.
Again, even though it’s simple to throw knees, the results can be devastating. Make sure when you are practicing, you are using a heavy bag or hitting mitts. We don’t want you going full speed on your buddy because no one should lose friends over sparring ‘incidents’!
