Bobby Fischer had many things to say about chess, but one of his quotes fits the King’s Indian Defense quite well:
“The turning point in my career came with the realization that Black should play to win instead of just steering for equality.”
The King’s Indian is a great fighting weapon and those who play it are often characterized as extremely aggressive and decisive chess players.

… and most beginners or low-rated players end up shooting themselves in their own foot, with a cramped position completely devoid of any play whatsoever.
