K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) has important parameters that affect the performance of the KNN. The parameter is the k value and distance matrix. In KNN, the distance between two points is determined by the calculation of the distance matrix. In this paper, we will analyze and compare the performance KNN using the distance function. The distance is Braycurtis, Canberra and Euclidean Distance. This study uses Confusion Matrix for evaluation of accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity. The results showed that the Braycurtis distance had better performance than Canberra Distance and Euclidean Distance with accuracy values of 96%, sensitivity of 96.8% and specificity of 98.2%.
