Kneestrikes to

the thigh.

Poentially a very painful move. If landed at the correct area, somewhere in the middle on the side of the thigh with sufficient power, it will buckle the untrained martial artist( admittedly as I).

In fact,when my 12-year-old little brother executed this move, I fell to the floor and was limbing a bit when I got up. Today, I can still feel it.

I have felt a few thai kicks from a friend, although not of full power, they certainly hurt as well. However, considering the age difference between my physically weak brother and my well trained friend, I think the knee to the thigh is probably as damaging. Am I wrong?


I know it isn't used much, only a bit in the clinch and doesn't seem to conflict much damage compared to thai kicks. But that might be because it is harder to land that powerful knee to the side of the thigh. Thoughts?=

There are several reasons why this may have appeared to be a more effective strike than should be apparenty possible:

1. The platella(kneecap)is one of the hardest bones in the human body. A solid impact from this area has been proven to shatter lesser bones. In your case, if the impacts were to a tendon, this would have caused immediate tendon retention(tightening of the tendon). That would account for your symptoms.

2. Femoral nerve dysfunction. This is temorary inability to use, or fractional use of, the afflicted leg caused by trauma to the nerves in the thigh. One of the largest and most dense nerve clusters in the human body is located in the inner thigh. This is refered to as mononeuropathy of the sciatic nerves. This happens in the elderly after a serious fall and more commonly due to arthritis, as Sciatica, due to the presence of the cluster in the lower back/buttocks as well as upper legs.
