Muay Thai Defensive Technique Tutorials
We all know that a Muay Thai knee can be an absolutely devastating strike, especially when your opponents momentum carries him directly into the knee. Therefore, using a knee as a counter to an aggressive puncher will most likely stop your opponent in his tracks and could even possibly drop him for a count.
One of the best ways to land a Muay Thai knee is countering off of straight punches. As your opponent throws either a jab or a cross, you can use a parry to deflect the punch while simultaneously using you and your opponents momentum to your advantage. Check out this Muay Thai technique tutorial which is one of the 50+ techniques in my Clinch King video course.
