"A beautiful book!" 2009-02-26
By Ronald Belton
This is a must have for anyone who loves Muay Thai. My copy was autographed by Ajarn Chi at a seminar. In is full of the basics which is a must for mastering any martial art. Doesn't have anything on clinch work, but this is volume 1 so I assume there will be another book that adresses this.

"Great Historical Book" 2007-02-22
By tao of ben~ (San Diego, CA)
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.

"Muay Thai basics" 2007-01-12
By Gj Roux (South Africa)
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.
