Muay Thai - Knee techniques

In Muay Thai punches are rarely thrown to the stomach area, as the knee is a much more effective weapon. The proper way to throw the knee is to thrust it straight upwards; powerful and sharp. The toes shoud point up, ready for a thrust kick. First practice the straight knee. Practice against a bag or during sparring. Good knee technique in the clinch is vital. When using the long knees pull the body back and push the knee forward, turning on your foot slightly. This extends your range and makes the knee stronger. Send power from your hips and pull your head back out of punch range. Deploy the knee as high as you can. If you can knee your opponent in the face, do it!
