Hi and Welcome to Muay Thai Art. Let’s not waste time since you already know what I am here for. That’s right today is another great Muay Thai lesson that comes with a short demonstration of the move. We’ve waited forever to start the next Muay Thai move using the foot kick.
Today’s foot kick move is called in Thai “Te Throng” that literally means “straight kick”. The targets of the move are such as chin or the surrounding of the face area. The basic description of the move is that the boxer has to raise the leg up and bend the knee and kick the target with the ball of his foot making sure that the toes are not in the way that can reduce the power of your delivered kick.
Before we dig deeper into the move, let’s take a look at the video first. Then I’ll break it down step-by-step for the move by using the rear foot kick and the lead foot straight kick.

The rear straight kick or using Tao Lung (rear foot) to Te Throng: To perform the attack move, you have to shift your body weight onto you left leg and then lean you body slightly backwards before raising your right leg up and bend the knee before kicking it forward toward the target. Twist your right hip over to the left and swing your right leg before impacting the aimed target with the ball or the instep of your right foot.
The lead straight kick is only a bit harder to do. Instead of putting your weight onto your left foot, using your right foot and leg to support your body weight before lifting up your left leg to deliver the kick. The other instructions are the same except the fact that you don’t need to twist your hip because your delivering the kick leg is already in the front.

The move of Today is called “the step-up knee kick” or “Kao Yiep” in Thai. The shorter way to describe the move is that the boxer is required to step with one foot on your opponent’s thigh. Then raise his body up using the thigh as the base then thrust the other knee forward hitting the targets like solar plexus, chin or face. Before we breakdown the move even more, let’s take a look at the video first.
The Rear Step-Up Knee Kick
To do this move, using the rear knee to deliver the blow you must be the right handed. Use this move when your opponent is at your opposite side in front of you and having his knees bent a bit too obvious or more than normal. Then you have to step onto his right thigh with your left foot. Lift your right heel off the ground and extend your left arm out in the front and protect your face with your right fist and arm. Then use your right arm or fist to grasp your opponent’s neck from his right. Leap up in the air using your opponent’s thigh as the base like you are stepping up on it. To finish of the move, the boxer has to thrust his right knee forward and upwards diagonally using the cap of the knee to impact on the focused target.
The move needs a lot of practice to master it. Don’t forget that practice make perfect. Just remember if you want to start doing this move, do it under supervision of your Thai Boxing master so that he can help correcting your move.

Welcome to our blog! Today is finally the time for our Muay Thai learning clip lesson. We are going to contine today with another Muay Thai Knee kick move. There only one more knee clip left which we will talk about next month and then we’re moving on to the next Muay Thai attacking technique using another Muay Thai weapon, the foot or shin.
Ok back to the topic. Today is still a Knee kick or flying knee kick to be exact or Kao Loy in Thai. The move is used for targets like solar plexus, chin or face. This move is very hard and the boxers who can do the move effectively need to be very skillful in Muay Thai. I’m sorry for the demonstration in the video which I also think he’s not that good either. But anyway, just want you to get some picture of what the move is like that’s all.
The move’s focus is to take a jump after a short distance boosting run and impact the knee against the target while you’re still in the air. It’s easier said than done is so true here. Let’s take a look at the video we took.
Now is the step-by-step of how to do this Muay Thai technique. First, try to put yourself in the position where there are quite enough distance between you and your fighter, far enough to boost the power before taking into the air right in front of your opponent’s face. Then commence your running approach stepping forwards with your right foot and left heel raised before taking off to run. Your body weight should be centered on your left foot and thrust it against the floor and spring yourself into the air with both feet and at the same time raising your right knee up at the level of the aimed target like the chin or the face. Immediately, lean backwards and push your right knee forwards against the target.
This really requires a lot of practice but trust me if you can really perform this Muay Thai move it will be worthwhile because it is supper effective and actually deadly to the opponent. Try it and let us know how do you do it.
Thanks for coming here today and hope you guys like the articles. Come back next month for the next and actually the last Muay That Knee attack we got on video clips. Please don’t forget to subscribe to our channel in YouTube. Happy New Year and See you next year!
Welcome to our thai boxing video lesson! Today Muay Thai attacking technique we will learn is called the Horizontal Knee-Kick. Some of you might have already been familiar with the move but for the rest of us who’s still very new at this sport, don’t worry. In this article you will see a video demonstration made by us and the broken down instructions for you to follow easily. Let’s not waste any more time.
The Horizontal Knee Kick or Kao Tad in Thai is another interesting knee kick used for targets like ribcage and trunk. The move requires the boxer to grasp and pull one side of his opponent’s neck with one fist and raise the knee to the level of the aiming target and thrust it sideways to hit the target. The knee move has to be parallel to the floor making it horizontal. Let’s now take a look at our video on YouTube. You can also go see this video and the others on YouTube and click subscribe to receive more video updates from us. I’ve been very bad at posting the new videos up. But I will put some new ones very soon.
There are two way to do this move. First by using the rear horizontal knee and the other is to use the lead horizontal knee. Here are the how to do both of them.
The Rear Horizontal Knee-Kick can be done by first leaning a bit forward and over to your left and shifting your body weight onto your left leg and foot. Next grasp your opponent’s neck crosswise by using your right fist to grasp your opponent’s neck on his right side. This way will block your opponent from trying to escape from the coming knee attack. Then prepare your right knee by lifting it out to the side up to the level of your intended target. Keep in mind that you have to keep your toes pointing at the ground to make your knee pointing and strong. Lastly is time to deliver the kick. Pull the opponent’s neck downward and use your left foot as a turning point to twist your body round quickly to the left and at the mean time flip your knee over to the front making your leg parallel to the ground before thrusting your knee horizontally into the target.
The Lead Horizontal Knee-Kick is quite different is not that comfortable to perform. But if you are ready and confident to do this move with your left knee or in case you are left-handed. Do it by transferring your body weight on your right leg instead and grasp the left side of your opponent’s neck with your left hand. Then raise your left knee out to the side at the level of the target keeping the toes pointing downward to the ground. Instead of using your left foot as a pivot, use your right foot and twist your body round to your right before flipping your left knee to the front parallelize the leg to the ground and thrust the point of your left knee into the aimed target.
That is it with the Muay Thai Knee-Kick technique. You can check out more of these lessons in our previous articles or come back for more next month. See you then!

This is our third knee kick lessons. There are lots more Knee kicks you can learn in Muay Thai, we only picked out some of the common ones to show you. I think the muay thai clips are quite doable if you’re new with the sport. Anyway, back to the topic, the kick is called the curving knee kick. Let’s first take a look at the Thai Boxing Clip we made and then I’ll break down the instruction on how to use this technique for you.
The Curving Knee Kick or also known in Thai as “Kao Kowng” is used for attacking targets like thigh and ribcage. In this move, the used knee is raised higher above the target level. It will be brought down and round like a curving motion before impacting the target. The other leg will be turned backward and upward stretching the toes to hold on the weight.
There are two types of curving knee kick. The difference between these two is which knee you want to apply for the move. Right here below is how to perform the rear curving knee kick and the lead curving knee kick. Here we go!
The Rear Curving Knee Kick
Start with the boxing stance as always. The boxer then leans forward to transfer the body weight onto the left foot. Then, he will have to extend the right hand outward to grasp on the side of his opponent’s neck. Now, lean the body over to the left and raise the right knee upward higher than the aiming target. At this point your lower right leg is angled or pointed to the back stretching the toes. To finish it off, the boxer will now twist his right hip round and over to the left, using the ball of the left foot as the pin while bringing the right knee round and downward to hit the target with the curving move. While delivering the kick, the boxer must bring the opponent’s neck downward with your right hand to prevent him from escaping.
The Lead Curving Knee Kick
The technique is quite unusual and pretty hard to do. But basically, you have to put your body weight onto your right foot instead and lean forward to grasp the side of your opponent’s neck by using your left fist. Use the tip of your right foot as the pivot and twist your body to the right while you lift your left knee upward higher than the target. Finish the move by bringing the knee down and round to impact the target while pushing the opponent’s neck downward to the direction of your knee kick.
