Knee - Scientific Proof

Knee - Scientific Proof

My favorite technique and the one Iíve caused the most damage with is the straight knee. I dedicate hours of bag/pad training to develop the power and strength in my knee. The knee is the most powerful weapon in the fighterís arsenal; itís one of the hardest areas and can deliver the most amount of force. When a proper knee is delivered you should be using your whole body to drive the knee through your opponent.

The best way to deliver the knee is by getting your opponent in a head/neck clinch, simultaneously driving their head towards your knee, while bringing your knee to either their face or solar plexus. You should be using your whole muscle structure; abs, lats, shoulders, hamstrings, glutes, etc to drive your opponent down, while driving your knee up.

I just mentioned the Solar Plexus and a lot of people know where itís located, but not why itís a favorite target for fighters. If youíve ever been hit hard in the Solar Plexus, you know itíll drop you fast. The solar plexus are also known as the celiac plexus or plexus c liacus. Itís basically a cluster of nerves behind the stomach and below the diaphragm. When this cluster of nerves get struck, it causes a sympathetic response in the body, which usually consists of loss of breath, cramps, and falling to the floor like a sack of pototoes. The response is just like that of leg kicks and striking the Common Peroneal Nerve (See Leg Kicks).

Interesting post. Doesn't surprise me in the slightest though.

Interesting blog and very interesting post. I'll make sure to pay more attention to my knee techniques during my MT training. I usually work on kicks and punches and elbows i barely ever use knees during sparring.

I think if you develop your knees it'll add one more thing your opponent has to worry about. There's nothing like delivering a hard knee and seeing the shock and dismay in your opponents face. I've got a section of clinch/knee sparing in my blog, may be of use to you. The hardest part is finding someone to work the drill. Good luck.

The MT knee to the chest in the clinch is ferocious and should be used with caution. You can seriously injure someone.. I've seen it.

The fight science documentary that National Geographic did showed that a Muay Thai knee strike can be equivalent to a 35 mpg car crash hitting a stationary object. They were amazed at how devastating it was. You can watch the whole series on you tube someone uploaded it in full. Just search 'Fight Science' on there.
