The book first describes the development, the history and the rules of Muay Thai and presents the necessary equipment.

In the second section, the fighting position, the steps and the fighting distance are explained.

In the third section, the attack techniques are described in detail: fist techniques, elbow techniques, kick techniques, knee techniques and clinch techniques. Muay Thai champions demonstrate the techniques in numerous pictures. As a result, the techniques can easily be copied.

In the fourth section, combinations for training at the sandbag and pads are demonstrated. The fifth section demonstrates a number of important defense and counter techniques. Additional techniques are demonstrated in the other book on Muay Thai written by the same author. The sixth section presents the content of a Muay Thai training section.

The book is excellently structured: the Muay Thai skills are passed on step by step. I also find the book design excellent. The large book is in color throughout and the pictures are superb. This is the optimum book for beginners and as an accompaniment to training!

I just started training Muay Thai and I bought this book to supplement my time in the gym. This book is an excellent addition to my training and I consider my self lucky to have found it when I did. The history of the art is great and so are the explanations of the techniques.

This is a great book for those of us just starting out.
My only caveat is that Mr. Delph goes to great lenghts to state that he feels Muay Thai was ruined in "certain English speaking regions". Then he goes on to demonstrate a hook and he is clearly hitting with the last two knuckles. These are the weakest part of the hand and in reality one would end up with a broken hand no matter how well wrapped it was. humpf!

This is good book for MT starters. Also it price is very reasonable. In there are color pictures which is not very often. Very good topics on Thai culture and MT rituals.

Techniques in there are basic: jab, cross, hooks, uppercuts, Thai round kick, front Teep, also very rare seen in MT bouts spining kick.

The reason why I give 4 not all 5 stars is clinch work which is very basic thing in MT from Thailand and here needs to be covered more. Too little is written on it.

I hope that in other book which I will order from same author it will be more clinch work.

All in all from all MT books that I own, this is second in my ratings.

Hope Cristop Delp will written more good books on national Thai sport.

History, color photos, clear explanations. That's what I look for in a martial arts book. I have a big MA library and recommend this one.
