A counterattack against the opponent’s right straight fist, using the opponent’s strength to send the knee.

When Japanese fighters and Thai fighters, Thai fighters often attack with one knee, while Japanese fighters often attack with boxing. The top knee is used with both hands for defense, and then grabs the opponent’s head, while disassembling the opponent’s body posture, while using it more. Therefore, the top of the knee is very effective for boxing-based fighters.

Thailand also has fighters who are good at boxing. However, when boxing-based fighters and knee-based fighters fight, it is almost invariably the knee-striking fighter who wins.
