Muay Thai Book

Here is a good book to learn Thai Boxing (Muay Thai):

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0873644263?tag=coskdv-20

Muay Thai is one of the best martial arts for self defense, as it is very results-focused - it has to be, as it has always been full contact and used to be extremely brutal. Indeed it used to be a form of military armed and unarmed combat/hand-to-hand combat.

Thai's main drawback from a self defence point of view is that it lacks proper self defence pressure points training - but this can be found elsewhere (see link).

  4. I was in Bangkok in January of 2009 and got to go to the Muay Thai fights. It was great. They gave a demo of the "old school" art and it was very impressive, and I've been in martial arts since 1975. You should look up the Fight Science video on You Tube and watch the one with the Muay Thai fighter doing a knee to a dummy. They said it generated the same force as an automobile crash at 35 MPH. Very impressive.
    Good site. Keep up the good work.
