    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Books on Muay Thai?

    Anyone got a suggestion for a decent book on the history/development of MT? I'm curious about its roots/evolution etc.

    I had an e-book around here somewhere...

    There's always Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muay_Thai

    Edit: go go Google desktop search... I might still have it on this system.

    Thanks guys. I've been looking but MT books seem to be few and far between.

    Draeger's "Comprehensive Asian Fighting Arts" has a section on Thailand's MAs.

    WMTA homesite has several web pages on the history of Thai MAs

    Ultimate Muay Thai by Bob Spour, I believe. I also have the one by Junlakan or something or other. I got em both off Amazon.com. They're pretty comprehensive and the one by Junlakan has a wall sized picture that shows the Wai Kru ... it's a very well done book. The other is as informative if not more as far as showing technique. I've several others but I can't recall em now.
