During his stay, the Tekken Legend got to enjoy Pakistan’s hospitality and practiced versus the local talent.
The practice sessions were held at Maniax Gaming Hub, players from all over the country came to Lahore to meet Knee and for a chance to play against the player they admired the most. Also, Pakistan’s Tekken star, Arslan Ash and Mr. Taxi from the USA came on the last day of practice.
During the 3 days practice session in a country where all of the local talent is super strong, knee played 41 sets (Ranging from first to 3 to first to 15) sets and ended up winning 38 of them. The Jon, Kanga_Heera, and Mereum are the only three local stars that were able to beat Knee.
Even though the matches were close, knee experience prevailed and overcame the Pakistani aggressive playstyle.
After getting back to Korea Bilal (represents Pakistani Tekken scene) tweeted:
Finally it came to an end. Finally "Knee" is back to Korea all safe and well.
I never had any idea that I would ever be able to manage his visit. I just took the responsibility as a player and as a Pakistani. I already knew that he is best in tekken but during his 4 days stay in pic.twitter.com/Cq2PzNymaD
