Far more than just counter techniques
Reviewed in the United States on August 31, 2014
Even though this book is the second in a series of three, where the first one covers Muay Thai basics and attacks and the third focuses on training exercises and training plans, it is not essential to buy the first and third book to go along with this one (you can of course do so if you want). But this book is a lot more than just a guide for Muay Thai counter attacks.
The author explains the history of the competitive sport, lists the rules and customs of Muay Thai fighting in detail and even interviews a few Muay Thai champions. The book also includes information on how to prepare properly for a competition. Of course the main part consists of counter attacks and the pictures and descriptions make these techniques easy to follow and practice.
In the last part of the book, the author himself does a FAQ on training in Thailand, answering every possible question a Muay Thai enthusiast might have. He also includes travel information, important addresses and advice on what to bring and the culture in Thailand.
An enjoyable read for every Muay Thai novice or professional.
