Overview

Kick boxing has become a craze, and Muay Thai—or Thai boxing—the national sport of Thailand has become one of the most prominent martial arts forms in the mixed martial arts (MMA) arena. Useful as a method of self-defense, an excellent way to top physical conditioning, and effective in stand-up fighting, Thai boxing is often called "the art of eight limbs." Hands, elbows, shins, and knees characterize Muay Thai, in the combined use of punches, kicks, and standing grappling moves.

Mastering Muay Thai Kick-Boxing is an outstanding aid to anyone training in Muay Thai or MMA—new students will learn the moves efficiently through clear diagrams that include centerline, levels, directional angles, and linear positioning. Over 200 color photographs supplement the diagrams, making it easy for more experienced students to refine their techniques. Joe E. Harvey, who began official training at the age of ten, understands what students need, and presents learners with many aids, training drills, tips and more!
