Although Muay Thai is widely recognized as an excellent form of physical training and a method of self-defense, as well as being an exciting spectator-sport, the emphasis tends to be on its violent aspects, while the traditional and cultural values on which it is based are almost completely ignored. With the aim of presenting a more rounded evaluation of Muay Thai, paying attention to its history and rituals as well as the fighting techniques, the girl-power team of Kat Prayukvong (researcher and coordinator) and Lesley D. Junlakan (writer and editor) spent over a year working on the book, having to struggle with inconsistencies and a virtual lack of written records, the Muay Thai legacy being largely an oral tradition passed down from teacher to student. The result is a stunning book, not only in terms of its content, but also to look at: rare archive pictures and superb full-color photographs lavishly illustrate the text.
"Muay Thai: A Living Legacy" is the first in a projected series of three books: the second and third volumes will focus on, among other things, more advanced techniques.
This book is the definitive reference for Muay Thai. This book covers all aspects of this fascinating sport. Read morePublished on December 14, 2010 by TimeLord_JK
