5.0 out of 5 stars Best Instructional Muay Thai DVD Period! January 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too scared to give a bad review June 20, 2009
Great explanations. My kids and I use this for part of our martial arts / self defense work (we use Dan Gable's wrestling dvd as the other part). Roufus explains the hows and whys of every move. We knew nothing of Muay Thai going into the dvd series, but the set is a great way to learn. Highest recommendation. (You think that is a good enough review so he doesn't track me down??)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!! January 6, 2011
Make no mistake, I can tell you that although I have lots of DVD's on martial arts including Krav Maga and Aikido etc, there is absolutely nothing that compares to this set! All I can really say is that if I had one...only one!...training video and I was stranded on an island, this is the one I would take hands down.
These guys are pros, the real thing...!...and don't let that calm voice fool ya, cause either one would whup your a'! Seriously, I love all the chapters and watch them religiously because the quality is no bull carefully dedicated to showing you how to git er done. You will not be disappointed!

This is simply the best Thai instructional video I've ever seen.

Despite i've been practicing Thai Boxing for about 2 years this helped me to improve and eliminate MANY errors i was doing.

Many thanks to the Duke from Russia.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal in learning Muay Thai kickboxing September 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
This 4 disc 8 volume collection will go over the very basics you need to build a great foundation. From defense to footwork, punches, kicks, knees, elbows, fighting in the pocket, clinch work, setting up combinations, building a game plan for fights, and even a demonstration of some of the more common gear used for Muay Thai training. Duke Roufus is one of the most sought after Muay Thai instructors, and it is highly recommended to purchase this instructional series. For beginners who wish to embrace the role of a new student, as well as more advanced students who wish to sharpen up their techniques, and learn something that might fill any holes in their game.

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.
