Editorial Reviews:

Muay thai is everything combined into one, as it is a sport, a form of martial skill, a king of science, and undeniably an art form. It is an art of fighting with hands, feet, knees, and elbows. It has been handed down through generations for over 2,000 years. It is a science, which could be practiced by the anyone. It could introduce them to the world of courage and the will to fight. This text book has been considered by many as the bible of Muay Thai. It collected together the history, the principles, the tactics, and the science of hand-to-hand combat. The most comprehensive book on the most distinguished art of fighting. This is the 9th re-print (2006), with the lastest revisions. Hardcover: 29 chapters, 244 pages. All fighting techniques are accompanied by photos.

Comment: I bought this book in a local market in Pataya Beach, Thailand. The locals all gathered around as I bought "the book". The author wrote it as a pledge to his teacher who "imparted (to me) all his knowledge of Thai boxing."
