Summary: This Is A Book On Savate, Not Western Kickboxing
Comment: First off, this book really should have had SAVATE somewhere in the title as that is what this book is about, the French art of foot fighting or Savate, and not the western style of kickboxing, which is the misconception that I was under when I first purchased this book.

Now having said that, this is a fairly good book that gives you a pretty decent overview on the martial art of Savate. The author provides a pretty detailed description of the various techniques which he demonstrates in this book and that was a real pleasure to see when so many others seem to skimp when it comes to providing detailed descriptions in their books.

The author really does a great job on explaining the physical basics of Savate and he also provides a lot of information intended to prepare you and your body for the rigorous training that comes with learning Savate. I would recommend this book to anyone first learning Savate as a good reference manual and guide.
