Summary: The negative reviews are in fantasy land
Comment: The negative reviews of these videos are daydreaming. There are no secrets besides the little known tips of doing the basics more effectively. That's what this tape contains.

There are no secret techniques, just DETAILS that make the basics work better. If people were hoping for some kind of secret new technique, they are not going to find it here. What they will find will be some of the best exposition on Muay Thai I have ever seen in a video series.

Summary: Great punches and footwork start here
Comment: This DVD presents the basics of Muay Thai punching and footwork. This is a great supplement to my training library. I learned a lot from this DVD. You will need Muay Thai #2 to learn how to kick and use your knees.

Summary: Very elementry and low production value
Comment: This DVD contains very basic of Muay Thai punches and elbows. If you have to be learning this level of fighting on a DVD you probably shouldn't be doing this art. I fast forewarded most of it.

Summary: Skilled Boxer and Gifted Instructor
Comment: I have never seen a tape so well presented. Each of the basic techniques were shown going forward and backwards to and from the camera and from left to right and back again. Thus, you can see each technique from the front and from the side.

Mr. Janjira put a lot of effort into these lessons so even an old "tard" like me can learn and absorb the techniques. He shows the basic stance and hand/arm positions and shows how to maintain them as you move around the ring. He then demonstrates the jab, cross, uppercut and elbow techniques thrown in three variations (angles)- uppercut, horizontal and diagonally downwards. He continually adds valuable tips during each presentation which greatly adds to understanding the movement.

There is only one negative factor - loud sounds caused interference in the video. They must have used a cheap microphone or had the gain too high and drove their amp into saturation. The rest of the tape was so good that I soon learned to ignore the interference.

A word to younger readers. Fights are won with basics - not with flashy techniques. Showboating only works in the movies. In the streets "flash" will get you beaten.

Muhammed Ali only had four techniques: a left jab, a left hook, a right cross and an uppercut. What made him better than the rest is that he did them to perfection with proper timing.

Another fighter, Bill "Superfoot" Wallace mentions on his tape series that he only used four techniques in winning all his fights. He had two hand and two leg techniques: a left jab, a left hook, a left side kick and a left roundhouse kick. But, he performed them to perfection.

So, young readers, what is it going to be? Master a few techniques and win fights or learn dozens of flashy or "secret" techniques and get your a** handed to you in a "real" fight. But, you will look "good" as everyone is laughing at you when you get planted on your [...].

Summary: muay thai # 1 basic techniques
Comment: This dvd is the first in a series of 4 and contains all the basics of muay thai, from footwork to punching and elbow techniques. It is well presented and demonstrates the techniques clearly. This dvd acts well as a starting point and is excellent for beginners. More advanced students of muay thai will know most of these techniques, however it is still worth buying for the excellent presentation of techniques with the focus on correct footwork.
