Muay Thai: Knockout One (VHS) Reviewer: "English Bob" from Northern VA. If you are interested in learning one of the most punishing martial arts available, then this set of videos is an excellent introduction for you. Master K (the instructor) is a 62 year old veteran of more than 70 Muay Thai wins and a retired champion from Thailand. He has a very high standard which he brings to his teaching and this is evident from the videos. I have trained with Master K for two years and have learned a lot from him. While you will not learn Muay Thai from these videos alone, they carry a lot of useful information which can be used to help improve your technique.
Thai Boxing Dynamite : The Explosive Art of Muay Thai by Rebac Zoran This book describes all the basic techniques in detail, but tapers off when explaining advanced techniques like jumping round kicks and knees. It has VERY concise explanations of the front kick (foot jab) and round kick. The elbow sections are dated, but informative. This book is from 1987, and most of the material has not been updated on the "westernization" of Thai boxing. Jab, Cross, Hook is NOT covered. The author has the habit of writing an introductory paragraph on a technique, a few lines on execution, and then a piece on fighting application. Most of the sections really should be expanded. This book has excellent pictures and background information. The summary of the training routine is excellent. You could easily set up a program with a partner using this book. Overall, taking into account the shortage of material on Muay Thai, I would recommend this book to the beginner. Don't fool yourself, though. You MUST have an instructor to learn Muay Thai! comments by Bjorn Andersson
