Information[edit]

Knee started playing Tekken with the first iteration of the series, when he was in elementary school[1]. While growing up he continued to hone his skills, spending much of his free time playing Tekken at different Korean arcades.

By prioritizing fun over being a specialist, Knee developed a vast character knowledge over the years, eventually becoming known for utilizing all kinds of characters in high level play. Throughout his career he has shown full mastery over a plenitude of characters, such as Bryan, Devil Jin, Dragunov, Bruce, Paul, Steve, Hwoarang, Kazuya, Miguel, Jin, Heihachi, Shaheen, Josie and Lili. Knee is considered by many to be the greatest Tekken player of all time.
