Summary: General overview of the sport
Comment: This book is slick, well-written, and a good informative read. The photos are very well done and the presentation is very nice. What it is NOT is a guide to "mastering" the art (not that you'll read your way to mastery of any martial art). There is a good discussion of some techniques and combos, but much of the book is spent on subjects such as stretching and conditioning exercises, the various styles of kickboxing (low, full-contact, low kicks, Thai boxing, etc.), women in kickboxing, and a list of the various kickboxing associations.
Some gratuitous information on defense against weapons is included at the end of the book. The techniques demonstrated will get you killed regardless of your skill as a kickboxer. Other than this thankfully short section, it's a good review of the world of kickboxing. Enjoy it.
Summary: Kickboxing Kicks
Comment: Good book. Gives the history of the sport from its inception to the present. Excellent photography for displaying the techniques. I have a green belt in Thai Kickboxing and find this book is a nice supplement to my training classes. It is also good for beginners as it goes through appropriate warm-up, stretches, and combination moves. I recommend for beginners to intermediate students.
