If you want to know an opening, you should be familiar with its typical positional ideas and remember the most important theoretical lines. But this is not enough.
Every opening has its own stock of tactical motives. Therefore, you also have to know the typical tactical patterns which frequently recur in your opening.
GM Bryan Smith’s course on the essential tactics in the King’s Indian Defense gives you a complete understanding of typical tactical patterns for both sides. Even if you only play the King’s Indian as Black, it’s important to know the opportunities available to White so you can prevent them!
The KID is a complex and rewarding opening where White enjoys more space but Black has a number of surprising methods to lay siege to the enemy position, often resulting in brilliant wins.
