This book is the third volume in the extremely well written and fully illustrated, Achieving Kicking Excellence? series of books.
This book, like all the other books in the series, goes into intricate detail over all aspects of executing the two co-primary kicks, which in this case are the Out-to-In Axe Kick & In-to-Out Axe Kick, and several of their main variations.
Starting with a basic anatomical analysis of these kicks, you quickly progress to the basic principles associated with the Axe Kick, and then you dive right into learning the proper execution of the co-primary kick, Out-to-In Axe Kick.
Once you have finished with this section, you are taken to the variations chapter which builds upon the primary kick, Out-to-In Axe Kick, by teaching you 5 of its main variations. This is followed immediately by learning the proper execution of the other co-primary kick, In-to-Out Axe Kick followed by the variations chapter which builds upon this co-primary kick, In-to-Out Axe Kick, by teaching you 5 of its main variations.
From here you are taken to the "Training and Practice Methods" chapter for a look at some very simple, yet effective methods for adding speed and power to your kicks.
Your next chapter takes a "question and answer" approach to some of the most common problems people have executing these kicks and the solutions to correct them.
The next chapter in this book deals with a brief application section for each of the kicks previously detailed in this book. Please be advised that a second ten volume series of books is currently being written which deals strictly with the combat and tournament applications of each kick.
Thebook then gives you a sneak preview of the next volume in the series, which in this case is the Crescent Kick.
