Great opening for beginners, as it avoids center complications
It is said the name "Indian" was popularized by Tartakower who saw a game played between two Brahmans with the well known moves Nf6, g6, Bg7, 0-0. When played by White it is called an "Attack" to distinguish it from the "Defense" when Black plays it.

i dont know why some people have a problem with the word indian in this opening......why dont u make such a fuss when you see london system,italian game or spanish game????,,......jealous or just racist?????
I do not think that chess peices are indians.
It's great if you are used to the KID and other hypermodern defenses.
kings indian attack was one of fishers faves
so bad and weak opening
To me this opening was called "fianchetto" ...
Although Kings indian Atack seems more exciting!
i've been playing this opening and i have found out this opening is one sided and slow allowing your opponent to gain momentum. or maybe because no one has show the full opening yet
It is called the King's Indian Attack to distinguish it from the King's Indian Defense
Why in the world would they call this "King's Indian Attack"?
And what is you talking about? @alanpoon
What's a mystery, romantic and complicated opening~
