Instructions for a Knee Thrust - Martial Arts Technique

This page provides details on how to do a martial arts knee thrust. This technique is used to target an attacker's stomach, solar plexus, groin, etc.

For more instructions on other knee techniques, please visit our main Knee Strikes section.

Instructions

  • With a knee thrust, you will drive your knee forward like a spear and hit your target with your knee cap. You will use your hips to thrust your knee at the target. In contrast, a fighter using a round knee strike (curved knee, etc.) will swing their knee horizontally or diagonally at the target.
