Muay Thai Technique: The Jumping Switch Knee

Learn How to Knock Your Opponent Out With a Jumping Switch Knee

The flying knee is a relatively safe yet incredibly dangerous technique.

A spinning hook kick can be dangerous. Even if you’re a master at it, you can do something wrong and find yourself completely off balanced. A jumping roundhouse kick is similar. Anything that extends your body far out will be dangerous, and especially techniques that rely on a whipping motion. Actually, anything flashy tends to be dangerous, but not the flying knee.

If you’ve got your opponent in the corner, the flying knee is a relatively safe technique to do that could send your opponent’s head flying into outer space. However, the setup is the trickiest part of the jumping switch knee, and that is why there’s another video below this one that will help you solve that problem. For now, here’s a tip. Take whichever knee you plan on knocking out your opponent with and make sure that it’s in line with your target.

This shortens the travel distance and will make your jumping switch knee that much faster. For the full breakdown of the technique, check out the video below:
