Keima, a Japanese go term adopted into English, is often referred to as a 'knight's move', as the pattern is the same as the way the chess piece moves. This matches the Japanese usage, where the term keima comes from the knight-equivalent piece in shogi, the keima (Japanese chess).
The keima is often used for attack because it is effective in diminishing the running space of a group. It is regarded inferior to the one-point jump for defence, because it is easier to cut the keima.
