What Is A Muay Khao Fighting Style In Muay Thai?

Muay Khao is a sub-style of Muay Thai that emphasizes the use of powerful knee strikes to defeat an opponent. It is a close-quarters style that utilizes clinching and grappling techniques to bring an opponent into range for devastating knee strikes.

Muay Khao fighters are known for their relentless forward pressure, strong clinching ability, and ability to end a fight with a single, well-placed knee strike.

While Muay Thai incorporates strikes from all parts of the body, Muay Khao puts a specific focus on knee strikes, making it a unique and challenging sub-style within the broader art of Muay Thai.

Whether you're a seasoned Muay Thai practitioner or just starting out, incorporating Muay Khao techniques into your training can help you become a more effective and well-rounded fighter.
