Developing Muay Khao (knee-fighter) style

Updated: Mar 16, 2023

Muay Khao is a perhaps the most feared of the fighting styles. These fighters specialize in applying overbearing and relentless pressure, constantly closing the distance, never allowing a moment's rest, and then dominating the clinch where they use brutal knees, elbows and their superb conditioning to drain the strength of their opponents. When used effectively it is a very difficult style to counter, even for the most talented strikers.


Muay Khao takes conditioning, durability, awareness of your opponent's weight distribution, and the ability to deliver knees and elbows at close range. In this padwork session, Kru Keng drills young fighter Krikthong in how to apply this style.
