Then quickly–one, two!–Apollo would swiftly kick the opponent behind each kneecap First the left, then the right. He’d kick him in that vulnerable, soft fleshy area called the “kneepit,” which is physiologically right behind each kneecap.
They looked like karate kicks right behind each kneecap.
Apollo was scientific and methodical when implementing this move.
Once (I remember) an opponent who sort of knew what was coming, was forced to drop to the mat on his right knee. He resisted when Apollo kicked him behind his left knee, standing up on one leg awkwardly. Apollo was already half-pivoting to the front, but seeing that the job was only half done, quickly kicked him behind the left knee three times in succession! The opponent howled with frustration and collapsed fully onto the mat, on his knees.
