Customer Rating: Summary: Great Historical Book Comment: I've been looking for this book for a while and finally found it. It was recommended by Ajarn Chai Sirisute who I had the honor to meet in 2006 along with Guro Dan Inosanto. It's a great book for historical facts and there are techniques (basics/intermediate) that anyoned can learn. I believe this book would be a great addition to anyone's library of the arts. It is a great book with great historical pictures and is an easy read. Plus a bonus poster in the pocket in the back on Wai Khru Ram Muay. . .awesome.
Much respect. Customer Rating: Summary: Muay Thai basics Comment: A very good, high quality book about some of the basic techniques in the muay thai arsenal. 4 or 5 weapons of fist, elbow, leg and knee are adressed and explained. Beginners in the sport of muay thai or thai boxing should seriously consider aquiering this book, as it will definitely help their progress. Extras are a bit of the history of the sport, hand wrapping, traditional wear and combination techniques. Each technique is clearly explained with full color photographs. So you apply what you read. Customer Rating: Summary: Awesome Comment: Great book. It exposes readers to the traditions and important customs when practicing Muay Thai, and includes great training information and techniques. Customer Rating: Summary: absolutly satisfied Comment: You wont go wrong if your searching for an all-round muah thai info book. Customer Rating: Summary: Muay Thai: A Living Legacy Vol. 1, 2nd Ed. Comment: This is a beautiful book; i.e. glossy pages with great pictures. However, Techniques instructions are too basic without depth or details. I guess it a good book for your coffee table or if you're new to Muay Thai. But if you are serious about learning Muay Thai, get "Muay Thai: The Most Distinguished Art of Fighting".
