    I am wondering if the KID is a good defense against the KIA. Other defenses that might be better?

    KID is good against everything. of course, without skilled player KID is worthless...

    Technically, KID requires White to play 1. d4, so it cannot be played in response to the KIA. However the setup should be ok vs KIA.

    Sorry, I said it wrong...
    What I meant experienced players like myself can play succesfully KID against almost all white d4 openings. Onthe other hand Pirc, which is in many ways similar to KID, can be played against almost all e4 openings..

    OK, how does the KID -- or more accurately, Nf6, g6, Bg7 -- stand up against the English opening? Thanks.

    Excellently. That's how I respond to the English.
