Knight's disvantage is that it can move only one step. But on the other hand, it's advantage is that it can leap. So, weaker knight may be lame knight. If mao is strong, one can use even 'more lame' knight: if either mao's or moa's path is occuppied, it cannot move in that direction (idea is from chess with darts: in this game knight is not able to leap over darts like knight i just described cannot leap over other pieces).
