Everyone can do the Asian Squat (it's not just for Asians!). Many people can get into the Asian squat but find it difficult to maintain the deep squat position. If you get hip pain, knee pain, or foot and ankle pain in the Asian squat, you need to build strength in the hip, knee, and ankle muscles. Doing deep squats requires flexibility (muscle elongation) as well as muscle STRENGTH and COORDINATION (ability to produce the right amount of force in the right position). If you have the flexibility to get deep into your Asian squat (AKA slav squat, hindu squat, primal squat, kimchi squat), then these strength exercises for the Asian squat will help you!
