    Best martial art book I've ever read..

    I just want to say, Thank You Mr. Christensen for writing this book. I have studied Shin do Kan and am now a student of Chinese Shaolin Kempo, and this book has helped me in my training in a big way. I have totally changed the way I train and feel motivated everyday to maintain my game (If you know what I mean). My wife trains with me and she likes the exercises in the book. As we speak I am purchasing your next book Fighter's fact book and can't wait to get started. Wish I could have met you to say thank you and shake your hand.... thank you Mr. Christensen thomas s.

    Unparalleled in the field of martial art books!

    Solo Training is fantastic! What an amazing teacher Loren Christensen is; he is the martial arts instructor you have always dreamed about. And while his previous books set a new standard in martial arts writing, Solo Training may yet be his masterpiece. This book is an exciting (yes, his writing is that good!) and enthusiastic exploration of training methods and techniques for training alone, outside of class time. Christensen¿s exercises and drills are easy to learn, and are the key to becoming excellent in your sport. Within a very short amount of time, you will find yourself surpassing any personal goals of fitness and competency. You will also be surprising your fellow students and instructor with your incredibly enhanced improvement. No matter what style, no matter what belt, and no matter how many years you have practiced you will never have been able to grasp the whole picture of martial arts without reading Solo Training. This is one hell of a book, one you will be turning to again and again. Thank-you Loren Christensen!
