quite complete overview of Mauy Thai for Muay Thai Practitioners for all levels
Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2013
Provides a brief history of Muay Thai and life growing up in Thailand as a fighter. Great visual aids/examples and solid instruction for beginner MT practitioners to correct form for Professionals. Provides Thai style training and weekly schedule at professional level, along some drilling techniques for pad work, heavy bag (and other types of bags) and general expectations and regiment of Thai fighters (Which I definitely took note of). Also provides a lot of detail in helping you understand best methods to find a gym I'm Thailand best suits your specific needs on several levels. Why did I rate 4 out 5 stars, instead of a straight 5 if this book is so complete? Though this has filled a few gaps for me as it relates to MT and I really appreciated the thoroughness of the content (I fight on an amateur level and have been MT student for several years), I was really hoping to learn more combinations to add to my training and fight game. The book not touch on combinations in really any detailed level. Furthermore, though there are great heavy bag specific training generally known drills, there was little detail on any sequences for combinations to use for bag work. Past basic kicking drills/conditioning and suggestion to do rounds dedicated to specific techniques I would recommend this book to beginner MT to Intermediary practitioners or to advanced folks who are interested looking to fill in potential gaps of their knowledge base.
