Summary: Best Instructional Muay Thai DVD Period!
Comment: Having trained under some of the best Thai fighters in the world, I was curious to see what Duke Roufus had to offer. My conclusion was quick. Duke had a lot to offer, and then some! There are many Muay Thai DVDs, which will show you a technique. This one actually details the details, such as footwork and why you should move your footwork a certain way. As the techniques progress, you are still reminded (in details) why the basic footwork is such an important foundation. For the English speaking world, this DVD is also one of the clearest if not the clearest in terms of attention to details and explanation. Not only are explanations given, Duke also demonstrates why he explains things (for example a certain defense against the hook) a certain way. Alternatives are also explained, which allows the fighter to flow into another technique if one doesn't work or if the other is more applicable.

A beginner and even intermediate practitioners will suddenly realize that Muay Thai, which is often credited as being deadly because of simplicity, requires a lot more than you think in order to master that simplicity. Footwork, angle, stances, combos, strategy, etc. takes years to master and Duke explains them. You will no longer view Muay Thai as some one-kick art that you can learn in a day. The deadly simplicity takes much practice to know and apply well. Once again, Duke will give you a perspective into this reality.

In the past, I had doubted if Duke Roufus (who once criticized Muay Thai when he was much younger) would be able to actually put out a fine instructional Muay Thai DVD. Let's just say, he shut me up in a good way - and he shut me up good. This DVD is right on and is actually not just the best one in which an American teaches this Thai art; it is one of the best ones - if not the best one - period!

Combine this DVD with Malaipet's "The Muay Thai Clinch," and you will have a pretty comprehensive understanding of the art. (If there is any weakness with this DVD, it has to be that the clinch work covered is very basic and does not provide the more advanced techniques. Of course Muay Thai clinching is a whole art in itself, deserving its own volume.)

All in all, this is a 10-Star set regardless of how you look at it.

Summary: excellent teaching
Comment: This is an excellent teaching product for those who want to become better at muay thai/kickboxing. Duke explains in detail from all different angles each move. For those of you looking to get an excellent quality standup game, I'd highly reccommend this dvd! Easy to follow and very technique oriented.
