    Rear teep (push-kick) can create the distance needed for it. Another set-up is to catch a roundhouse kick to the body, switch your grip to grab the leg with both hands (with the opponent's foot now out to the side), then to simultaneously pull your opponent towards you while executing a flying knee. So, to counter a left roundhouse, you'd end up doing a left flying knee, and vice versa. The counter-attack (vs. creating distance with the teep) is a lot more difficult to pull off in sparring, but it has been done.

    Also doable after you parry a rear teep and cut an angle to the outside.

    a Kyokushin one:

    When in front of you opponent throw and land a powerful lowkick
    Keep on front of him exchanging straight punches
    Feint a lowkick with leg you threw the last lowkick and jump to the side while you bring up the other knee to the desired objective (head, chest or abs)

    Practice this with a shield and a partner

    Seems interesting but not sure what you exactly mean by this. Like a scissor flying knee? Or?

    Why would you set up a flying knee any different from a regular knee? Just throw a regular knee and put some fly behind it when the opportunity presents itself.

    You need just a little more distance to achieve "takeoff" for a flying knee, hence the set-up. This is because, at least in MT, the force of a knee travels mostly forward instead of upwards. Therefore, for a flying knee, that is traveling a greater forward distance, you need that clearance before executing.

    Granted, you can do a grabbing JUMPING knee which requires no further set-up than a regular grabbing knee... putting both hands on the right shoulder to deliver a right jumping knee, and vice versa.

    Takeoff? Dude, just do a regular knee and thrust forward with your whole body. Why are you making it sound complicated. It's a regular knee with forward body movement. It's as different from a regular knee as a cross is from a flying cross.

    Yeah I definitely complicated that one a bit, but I still think you need an extra step (just one) for good momentum on a flying knee. Not the same as a flying jab or cross, since for those techniques you don't (have to) move forward at all - you can still get air and pull it off effectively. CAN you do a flying knee without that extra 6 inches of set-up? Sure. Will it amount to anything stronger than a regular standing knee? Probably not.

    In the Anderson Silva Sonnen fight, Silva throws a flying knee. Yes, his foot doesn't come off the ground, so technically it's not flying, but the only reason for that is that Sonnen was sitting and therefore the target was below. No elaborate setup, no charging across the cage. Simply move body forward, do knee, profit. Stop overthinking it.
