    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is there a Muay Thai equivalent to Jack Dempsey's Championship Fighting?

    I realize there is not the same tradition of creating manuals for techniques in the East as there is in the West, but I would love if there was an English language book that so succinctly talks about kicking power, Muay Thai style strikes and defense, footwork, etc. Long shot, I know.

    *It should be noted that I am not using this for at home training so much as my own curiosity: when I have more time I am hoping to jump into the MT classes at our club.*

    I've picked up this bad boy at some point while I was looking for drills. It doesn't discuss technique and principals in quite the same depth but I does have a great list of different types of combinations to drill. I think it could be close to what you're looking for.

    I think Rob Kaman's video series is pretty good.

    This is exactly what I was hoping for, and I am amazed it exists. Thanks!

    I do like his video series. I was specifically looking for reading material but whenever I want MT technique videos I go for Kaman and also Duke Roufus' series is almost complete on youtube.

    My old trainer, Pedro, was one of the co-writers on this book, I haven't read it and have heard both mixed feedback about it, really good & bad. I think having two writers caused the discrepences

    But Pedro himself is respected not just by me but other members here.
