List of Knee Strikes - Martial Arts
This section provides instructions for a wide variety of martial arts knee strikes. These techniques are effective for many close range self-defense situations. While knee strikes are not allowed in some martial arts sparring matches for safety reasons, they are used extensively in sparring by many other martial arts such as Muay Thai.
Given the shorter range of knee strikes (versus kicks and punches), this technique is often combined with clinching or holding the attacker so he can not escape and move outside the limited range of the knee strike. Self-defense targets for a knee strike include the attacker's head/chin, ribs, groin, quad muscles, etc. For information on kicking techniques, please visit the main Martial Arts Kicks section.
