Muay Thai Knee Strike Techniques {Full List}

Without a doubt, muay thai knee strikes are an important element in muay thai. In fact the knees are considered two of the official eight weapons of muay thai. Besides the obvious offensive capabilities knee strikes offer, muay thai fighters also use knee techniques to intersect (check) opponent’s attacks. This makes the use of knee strikes crucial to master for any muay thai practitioner, due to the style relying greatly on knee techniques to both attack and defend. Therefore I decided to make a full list of muay thai knee strikes.

Muay Thai Straight Knee Strike – Khao Trong

The muay thai straight knee strike is the first knee technique muay thai fighters learn. This is due to it’s simplicity to understand, while being a technique that can be used from multiple positions. Giving a beginner muay thai fighter the essentials to start sparring effectively in a muay thai settings.

Though I described this technique as ‘simple’, it’s simple to understand and start using. To truly master the muay thai straight knee strike to its full potential one must train this technique for multiple years.

How to do the muay thai straight knee strike technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai straight knee strike
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot, in order to maximise momentum.
  3. With your striking leg (back leg) start launching your knee, aiming at either the chest or the abdominal, toes stretched back.
  4. Swing down your hand that is directly corresponding with your striking leg, while covering your chin with your other hand. In order to help your hips go forward thus creating more power and increasing your defence against counter strikes. (The person in the gif is not using the guard I recommended)
  5. The muay thai straight knee strike can also be executed from within the clinch, to target the head or the abdominal.

When the muay thai straight knee strike technique should be used

  • Short to medium range distance.
  • Within or outside the clinch.
  • Very effective when you are in the dominant clinch position (inside the opponent’s arms). Pulling down your opponents head and executing this technique.
  • I would also recommend you reading this great article by ‘Muay Thai Pros’ explaining in depth how to improve your muay thai knee strikes.

Muay Thai Diagonal Knee Strike – Khao Chiang

The muay thai diagonal knee strike is somewhat similar to that of the muay thai straight knee strike but not entirely. Unlike the straight knee strike which strikes upward in a straight line motion. The diagonal knee strikes from a sideways angle, similar to that of the hook punch or that of a roundhouse kick.

Knowing this technique excluding the obvious benefit of being less predictable due to the increased skill set (but that could be said for any new technique learned) is, being able to bypass certain guards. Making your opponent break his guard in order to protect his sides, giving you the opportunity to strike more vulnerable parts of the body.

How to do the muay thai diagonal knee strike technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai diagonal knee strike
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot and pivot to your left assuming you are in the orthodox stance (striking with your right knee). If you’re in the southpaw stance pivot to your right. Much like the reason why we rise on the ball of the foot pivoting also creates more momentum thus a stronger strike.
  3. With your striking leg (back leg) start launching your knee, at somewhat of a 45 degree angle. Though there are many variables in play that affect the proper angle the diagonal knee should be launched at, such as the height of your opponent and the area you wish to hit.
  4. Swing down your hand that is directly corresponding with your striking leg, while covering your chin with your other hand.
  5. The muay thai diagonal knee strike can also be executed from within the clinch.

When the muay thai diagonal knee strike technique should be used

  • Short to medium range distance.
  • Within or outside the clinch.
  • I don’t particularly use this technique a lot outside the clinch. Though I find it very useful when I’m in the dominant clinch position. Typically your opponent will block his face so that you don’t knee strike his face this makes the straight knee strike somewhat useless. Therefore I usually opt for this technique to break their guard.

Muay Thai Knee Slap – Khao Top

The muay thai Knee Slap, unlike the two previous techniques that we discussed, where they can be executed from a short to medium range. This technique can only be used from a really tight clinch. The muay thai knee slap is usually taught to all beginners starting in muay thai as it’s fairly simple to learn. Unfortunately it does not have the devastating power that the previous two techniques have, but it can still be used to wear down your opponent. Since there aren’t much techniques in muay thai that can be used while in a tight clinch, mastering this technique is still essential.

How to do the muay thai Knee Slap technique

  1. You are in a tight clinch therefore your stance is most probably a square stance (meaning there is no front or back leg).Muay thai Knee Slap
  2. Do step 2 and 3 simultaneously. Most muay thai gyms will tell you to rise on the balls of your supportive leg (the leg that isn’t going to strike). Than slightly hop to the side from which the knee strike is coming from (if your striking with your right leg, hop to the right with your left leg) in order to increase momentum. I personally disagree and prefer to stay flat, no hoping for this knee strike. Before I tell you the reason why note that I mainly spar with MMA rules. Therefore this does not apply to you if you are fighting under muay thai rules but I think it still might interest you.The reasoning why I prefer to stay flat footed for this knee strike is because, it is very easy for your opponent to sweep you, throw you on the ground and pass your ground guard. Placing you in a very dangerous position. Something to keep in mind if you’re sparring with mma rules. Though if it’s a stand up fight the standard way of doing this technique is better, because of the significant increase in power.
  3. Rise your striking knee parallel to your body at about 90 degrees.
  4. Aim at either the ribs or thighs, strike while pulling your opponent towards the strike.

When the muay thai Knee Slap technique should be used

  • While in a tight clinch.

Muay Thai Curving Knee Strike – Khao Khong

The muay thai curving knee strike is regularly mistaken with two different techniques that we already discussed. The muay thai diagonal knee strike and the muay thai Knee Slap. This is due to the technique being similar to both of them, in fact it’s like a hybrid of  these two techniques.

Personally I don’t really see the use of this technique except for having an additional attack to be less predictable. The reason that I am not a big fan of this technique is that. It has less power, targets the same area, executed from the same place, slower and is easier to block than the diagonal knee strike, without any additional benefits.

How to do the muay thai curving knee strike technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai curving knee strike
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot and pivot to your left assuming you are in the orthodox stance (striking with your right knee).
  3. Rise your striking knee parallel to your body at about 90 degrees.
  4. Aim at either the ribs or thighs, and strike shifting your hands downwards, while covering your chin with your other hand.

When the muay thai curving knee strike should be used

  • Short to medium range
  • The only reason I use this technique is to be less predictable. If anyone has a great tactic for this technique I would be honored if you shared it with me in the comments section.

Muay Thai Horizontal Knee Strike / Horizontal Knee Guard- Khao Tat

The muay thai horizontal knee strike contrary to what you might expect isn’t actually a knee strike, in fact I see it more as a close ranged kick than a knee strike. This is because you are focusing to hit with your shin and not your knee but due to its name I decided to mention it as well.

This technique is more in the advanced level as the concept is a bit more complicated than that of a normal knee strike. Besides it being an offensive technique it can and is normally used as a defence technique. By keeping the shin in place after contact you’ll be in what’s known as the horizontal knee guard.

How to do the muay thai horizontal knee strike technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai horizontal knee strike
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot and pivot to your left assuming you are in the orthodox stance (striking with your right shin).
  3. With your striking leg (back leg) start launching your shin, at somewhat of a 45 degree angle. Though like the diagonal knee strike, there are many variables that determine the proper angle.
  4. Step 4 will depend whether you are using the technique offensively or defensively.(Offensive) With your hands try to grab hold of your opponent’s neck and tricep to further increase the power of the technique, and  progress into the clinch position to further continue your attack.(Defense) try to control your opponents hands, in order to stop his attack.

When the muay thai horizontal knee strike technique should be used

  • The technique should be used at medium range (offensively), else I would rather go for a diagonal knee strike. This is due to the horizontal knee strike having a bit more range but the diagonal knee can exert more power. Therefore I would opt for the diagonal knee if range wasn’t an issue.
  • To start your attempt at controlling your opponent and gradually getting into the clinch. I find this technique very effective against martial arts that are primarily stand up/don’t practice any form of grappling (clinch) or ground work.Stand up martial arts generally try to keep distance when they know that you train any form of clinch techniques. If I can’t get into a clinch a tactic I like to use is, slowing down as if i’m getting tired or a more defensive themed fighting style to taunt my opponent into going offensive.When they start getting more aggressive I execute this technique, grab them really firmly, controlling them with my leg (utilising the horizontal knee guard). Then progress into the clinch, if you do succeed it’s practically game over for them.Something I would like to point out with this tactic is that you only get one chance to do this, if it fails don’t bother trying again. They will know what you’re up too and there won’t be that split second to properly grab hold of them.
  • A great way to apply this technique is when your out of breath and your opponent is being really offensive. By using the horizontal knee strike and staying in horizontal knee guard you can spare some time and catch your breath.

Muay Thai Knee Bomb / Long Knee – Khao Yao

I like to describe the muay thai knee bomb, long knee or spear knee whatever you want to call it, as a ‘Straight Knee Strike’ on steroids.

The concept of this technique is like that of straight knee strike but the movement is more exaggerated. Resulting in longer range and more power, this is obviously a more advanced technique but does not necessarily replace the straight knee strike. In situations where you are at a close range, you would not have the space to execute this technique and will have to resort to the straight knee strike.

How to do the muay thai Knee Bomb / Long Knee technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai Knee Bomb Long Knee
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot, in order to maximise momentum.
  3. With your striking leg (back leg) start launching your knee, aiming at either the chest or the abdominal, toes stretched back, shin as close to your butt as possible. In order to strike with the hardest part of your knee.
  4. Swing down your hand that is directly corresponding with your striking leg, while covering your chin with your other hand.
  5. As you noticed it has the exact same steps as that of the straight knee strike. What makes it different is that you have to extend yourself more to perform the Knee Bomb / Long Knee technique.

When the muay thai Knee Bomb / Long Knee technique should be used

  • Long to medium range.
  • It can be used as a very strong technique to start your combo with.
  • As a powerful counter strike.

Muay Thai Long Knee Modern Variation

I saw this long knee technique variation recently from a youtuber named Shane Fazen at fightTIPS. I haven’t yet properly implemented this technique in my sparring regime. Though after I practice it a bit more, I plan to replace my main long knee strike with Shane’s modification. I do believe it is an upgrade to the traditional long knee strike.

The main modification of this knee strike is,

  1. Pivoting of the foot – Resulting in more momentum, power,range and hip flexibility.
  2. Twisting of the knee – While the knee is being launched much like the normal punch, Shane suggests to twist your knee resulting in also more momentum and power.
  3. Another benefit I’d like to point out is that, while using this long knee strike variation you tend to lean your upper body further back than that of the traditional long knee strike. This improves the techniques defencive capability as well, due to your face being further back there is less chance your opponent can counter you effectively.This technique variation increases more power, range and defence to that of the traditional technique without sacrificing anything in return. That’s why I believe that this technique is an upgrade and will be replacing soon.

  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. With your support leg (front leg) rise on the ball of your foot and pivot to your left assuming you are in the orthodox stance.
  3. With your striking leg (back leg) start launching your knee, as if you’re launching the long knee or straight knee strike. Mid way to the strike slightly tilt your shin outward. Aiming at either the chest or the abdominal, toes stretched back, shin as close to your butt as possible.
  4. Swing down your hand that is directly corresponding with your striking leg, while covering your chin with your other hand.
  5. The muay thai long knee modern variation technique can also be used as a replacement for the straight knee strike while in a clinch.

When the muay long knee modern variation technique should be used

  • Well this technique is basically an upgrade for the traditional long knee strike. I haven’t experimented much with this one yet. Though as for when it should be used, it doesn’t have any more or less uses than the traditional technique.

Muay Thai Rear Leg Flying Knee  – Khao Loi

This is one of those techniques that I hope I will never be on the receiving end. The muay thai rear leg flying knee technique is a very powerful and dangerous strike, usually resulting in a knockout. Though I won’t lie seeing one being executed perfectly, followed with a knockout is just candy for the eyes ‘priceless’.

The flying knee has the same fundamental concept as that of the straight knee strike. The main difference in the flying knee to that of the straight knee strike relies on our support leg (front leg). Unlike the straight knee strike where our support leg stays on the ground, extra pressure has to be applied on our support leg to execute the flying knee in order to spring of the ground.

Though not everyone utilises the back leg to spring forward, I find that slightly bending your back leg and simultaneously jumping on both legs before executing this technique quite helpful. Unfortunately this slows down the technique but makes me jump higher and hit way stronger. So you’re technically sacrificing speed for power, depending on the situations using your back leg to also spring forward might lead to a win due to the increased power or completely fail due to the opponent having the time to block/avoid it.

How to do the muay thai rear leg flying knee technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the back. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your left leg.Muay thai rear leg flying knee
  2. Do step 2,3 and 4 simultaneously. Depending on the range you are at and the motives for doing this technique will change how you spring of your support leg. If you are at a medium range with the motives of pushing your opponent back while causing some damage, spring towards your opponent. If you’re in a more closed range with the motives of hitting your opponent’s chin, the spring action has to be more vertical.
  3. With your striking knee, launch it as if you were launching the straight knee strike. Aiming at the chest if you’re at a medium range or the chin if you’re at a closer range.
  4. Swing down your hand that is directly corresponding with your striking leg, while covering your chin with your other hand.

When the muay thai rear leg flying knee technique should be used

  • Medium to short range.
  • Due to the technique being a more reckless form of fighting, it’s a great way to push your opponent back. Psychologically putting your opponent in a more defensive mental state.
  • Great potential for a knockout, especially when the receiver is feeling fatigue. Distracting him with other strikes, guard slipping up then boom go for a flying knee to the chin.
  • For the same concept as when your opponent is feeling fatigued, your opponent being disbalanced for any particular reason the rear flying knee has great potential for a knockout.

Muay Thai Front Leg Flying Knee

The muay thai front leg flying knee technique is a bit harder to execute than the rear leg flying knee technique. This is because unlike the rear leg counterpart where leg strength is the main attribute to successfully execute. The front leg knee strike requires the proper skill needed to drive momentum simultaneously with your back and front leg while in the air.

How to do the muay thai front leg flying knee technique

  1. The leg that is going to be used to execute the knee strike must be in the front. Simply switch to a southpaw stance if you wish to execute this technique with your right leg.Muay Thai Front Leg Flying Knee
  2. With your back leg shoot your knee as high as possible. Though keep the knee structure relaxed, unlike when the knee is meant to hit where we tighten it. This is because, with a tightened knee we can not perform that swinging motion as effectively as if the knee was more relaxed.
  3. When your back leg has reached the peak pull it back down while simultaneously launching your support leg. Your support leg is going to be the striking knee, so make sure that knee is tightened up (shin as close to the butt as possible and toes are aligned with your shin).
  4. Keep your hands in the normal guard position, while landing taking control of the clinch instantly to prevent counter strikes.

When the muay thai front leg flying knee technique should be used

  • long to mid range.
  • I’ve seen some K.O’s being done on youtube by this technique. Simply by running from the other side of the ring and executing this unsuspected strike.
  • Like the rear leg flying knee strike, this technique has really great potential to finish off someone who’s getting tired.

Muay Thai Step Up Knee Strike (Faint) – Khao Yiap

There are two completely different knee strikes that identify as step up knee strikes, therefore I’m going to discuss them both as to clear the confusion between them.

The most commonly referred step up knee strike in muay thai is, when the knee is used as a faint that drives momentum to the real knee strike. Somewhat follows the front leg flying knee scissors mechanics. It’s a very basic technique to learn though to master the full extent of its deceitfulness will take months if not years of sparring.

I’m going to skip the how to do technique of this knee strike as it’s fairly simple just raise your front knee, then pull it down and execute the knee strike of your choice.

When the muay thai step up knee strike (Faint) technique should be used

  • Mid range.
  • The main use of this technique as I have already said is it’s deceitfulness. What I mean by this is to try to make the strike look real, making your opponent drop his guard than boom the real strike comes in.

Muay Thai Step Up Knee Strike (Traditional) – Khao Yiap

This muay thai step up knee strike was mainly used in older times. When the muay thai stance used to be a lot wider compared to nowadays where the stance is very tall. The wide stance is still used in muay boran which is basically an older version of muay thai (to put it simply).

Seeing this technique being executed is very eye pleasing and powerful at the same time. Unfortunately due to nowadays most martial arts are opting for a shorter stance this technique has lost its usefulness. Though if your sparring against a more traditional martial artists with wide stances it can still be executed.

The main mechanics of this technique is to step on your opponent’s thighs and with your other leg kneeing them on the side of there face. Since I mainly practice MMA nowadays, I never really bothered to train this technique as it’s fairly hard to execute and unless your opponent has a wide stance it can’t be executed properly.

How to do the muay thai step up knee strike (traditional) technique

  1. Identify your opponent’s front leg, If your opponent has a left leg in front you must climb on that leg with your right leg.Muay thai step up knee strike
  2. Leap forward with your back leg and land on your opponent’s thighs or hips with your front leg.
  3. The second you lend on your opponent start launching a diagonal knee strike to your opponent’s face.
  4. Try to keep your hands in the guard just in case they counter you before having the time to execute the technique.

When the muay thai step up knee strike (Traditional) technique should be used

  • Well personally I don’t really recommend learning this technique for sparring. The reasons are 1) It’s difficult to execute, 2) not many martial arts styles still use this stance for sparring, 3) I think you can be countered fairly easy, 4) if your opponent is that fatigued that he lets you climb on his leg I would simply use a flying knee strike.
  • Looks hella cool. Using this technique at demonstration will surely hype people up and get them interested.

Muay Thai Rabbit Knee Strike – Khao Kratai

The muay thai rabbit knee strike is a very basic technique to learn. It’s used in tight clinches to wear down your opponent by making rapid knee strikes to your opponent’s lower thigh just above the knee cap.

How to do the muay thai rabbit knee strike technique

  1. This technique should be used in the clinch. It doesn’t matter if you use your front or back leg.
  2. Strike your opponent just above the knee cap.
  3. Keep doing the same action on both legs. This will damage his legs making them less effective throughout the fight.

When the muay thai rabbit knee strike technique should be used

  • Short range within the clinch.
  • As a way to wear down your opponent.
  • As a way to get out of the clinch, rapidly hitting your opponent with the rabbit knee strike will cause him pain. Not enough pain to give a knockout with but it will still sting.

Muay Thai Small Knee Strike – Khao Noi

The muay thai small knee strike is very similar to that of the rabbit knee strike. It’s basically an alternative for it as it follows the same concept to wear down your opponent. The difference in the small knee strike compared to that of the rabbit knee strike is that in the small knee strike you target the inner thighs. Though generally with the rabbit strike you target the leg in front of you, while with the small knee strike you target the other leg. Therefore the small knee strike might cause more damage due to having more motion.

An interesting combination utilising these two techniques could be. To identify his dominant leg and hammering it with both techniques.

How it should be done and it’s uses are exactly like that of the rabbit knee strike therefor I’m not going to be listing them down again. (with the exception of the knee hitting the inner thigh instead of right above the knee cap).

Muay Thai Knee Checking – Buok

This technique happens to be my second favourite technique right after the triangle choke. It’s not necessary a knee strike though ‘I’ slightly modified it to become an amazing counter which has really been working out for me. In fact I believe I won a lot of sparring matches solely because of this modification. (I’m sure I’m not the first one that came up with it, but I can’t see any youtube videos or blogs doing it like that).

But firstly I’m going to talk about how it’s normally done than tell you how I do it.

The main concept of the muay thai knee checking is to block your opponent’s attacks with your shin. This is also a basic technique beginners learn and is essential. If you can’t block your going to get hammered.

How to do the muay thai knee checking technique

The mechanics are simple raise your knee up, keeping your shin powerful and you block the kick like that.

An important note is to always block the kicks with the front of your shin not the sides, The angle you rise up your knee is crucial. This is because the side’s of your shin aren’t as strong as your front side which will result in you getting hurt.

Another thing to look out for you don’t have to always use your front knee to block, in fact if the kick is coming from the side of your back leg you should block it with the back leg the same way.

Here’s a great video explaining how to properly block kicks with your shin by Anthoney from The Strikers Lab. Though something I don’t agree with Anthoney is raising on the balls of your feet. He claims that rising on your feet increases your balance, I find staying flat actually increases my balance more but except from that I fully agree with him.

Martial Arts Nerd Knee Checking Technique – Khao Sappa Rd

I haven’t seen this technique being used by professionals, maybe it works for me cos of my penguin physique (short legs, long torso) or really strong bones I don’t know. Take this technique with a grain of salt, because I don’t fight professionally and that could be the reason why the technique actually works for me.

The mechanics are quite simple, you intercept your opponent’s kick with higher part of your shin just below the knee cap with the aim to disbalance your opponent. This is because the upper part of the shin is stronger than the lower part of the shin bone.

Unlike the normal muay thai knee checking technique where you block with the closest leg to your opponent’s attacking leg. The leg used depends on the range of your opponent’s attack. If the attack is a long ranged roundhouse kick you block it with your back leg, if it’s a close ranged front kick you block it with your front leg. Though it depends I almost always use the back leg even when it’s a close kick. The reason why I use the back leg instead of the front leg is because I want to generate more power in the ‘block’ which brings us to the next difference in the technique.

Typically the normal knee block’s motion is to raise your knee upwards (at the sky). Instead I use a kicking motion to block, it sort of represents how swords parry to understand me. While the normal muay thai knee block is like a solid wall where the kick stops because the kick meets with an immovable solid object. My variation makes the kick meet an opposite force while colliding.

The important thing to keep in mind is to try to hit the lower part of the opponent’s shin with your upper part of the shin this is essential for the technique to work. Not only has this technique made my opponents disbalanced which lead to many successful takedowns but there were some that flat out fell after the intersection.

Disclaimer: I mainly train and spar in MMA not muay thai and I believe that might have inflated the technique’s success rate. I don’t think it would be as effective in muay thai, this is because muay thai fighters focus a lot on shin conditioning therefore the impact of the attack would not cause that much damage. While in MMA we don’t emphasis that much on shin conditioning, therefore when I impact their lower shin they are not used to that pain and end up getting disbalanced.

Anyways if you try out this knee parry technique make sure to tell me how it goes. If this technique actually exists would love if you told me it’s proper name.
