Knee Drop - Martial Arts Striking Technique

This page provides details on the Knee Drop. This martial arts knee strike can be used when grappling with an opponent. As the opponent is falling or has hit the ground, the martial artist falls knee first onto the opponent's chest, abdomen, ribs, etc. The martial artist then follows up with punches, elbow strikes and/or grappling techniques.

This technique is generally used in self-defense situations. However, it has also become a well-known professional wrestling technique (i.e. flying knee drop). A knee drop can also be used in order to pin an opponent to the ground (with the knee remaining on the chest or abdomen and pressing down).

For additional knee techniques (i.e. Flying Knee Strike), please visit the Knee Strikes section.
