Breath deeply while performing this move, exhaling deeply when you strike.
Although you are striking with your knee and pulling your opponent inwards, it is important to realize that the power of your knee doesn’t come from the leg but from the thrusting forward motion of the hips. A knee with only the leg will be weak, but a knee combined with a forward hip thrust will be devastating
When kneeing it is not your objective to hit your opponents stomach, leg, or head, it is your objective to move your knee through your opponents stomach, knee, or head.
