Flying knee video
Info about "Flying knee video"
A flying knee (known as hanuman thayarn in Muay Thai, and sometimes called a jumping knee) is a knee strike very similar to a front knee, except that it is performed in stand-up fighting by jumping, and often by rushing towards the opponent.
A more reckless application of the flying knee strike can be applied by rotating the body so that the side of the knee strikes the opponent, used more as an offensive pushing attack rather than a concussive KO attack. Generally, flying knee strikes can be effectively applied when the opponent is off-balanced, recovering from previous strikes, or as a counter to a strike by the opponent.
It can also be used as a follow-up maneuver after delivering a particularly incapacitating strike. One such example of this was at a UFC event where David Loiseau, after buckling his opponent Charles McCarthy with a Taekwondo technique, a Jump Back Kick, to the abdomen, immediately charged in with a flying knee, knocking McCarthy down against the cage and finishing the fight via technical knockout.
