King's Indian Defense belongs to the Indian Defense family of openings and is characterised by the early fianchetoeing of the black dark-squared bishop on g7. It is a sharp opening and it has always been a very popular choice for black ever since its introduction in top-level competitive chess in the mid-20th century.

    My favorite Opening, and i really liked how Kasparov and Nunn played this Opening, This Opening was really a War Game, it's a Game of Attack and Counter Attack, this Opening is really for Chess Warriors.
