    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Most complete documentation of Muay Thai tricks?

    Last night, I got shown some really secret-funky moves in the clinch by my coach. Heel kick to outer thigh, I've not seen those in fight videos before, and being a little curious, asked him to try it on me. It really hurts!

    Which made me curious, what are the best books out there that captures all the best muay thai techniques from various camps from the north, to the south of Thailand?

    I'm particularly interested in setting up attack combinations, and also counter drills, and training techniques. Not so interested in the documentation of single technique per se (this is a round kick, this is a downward elbow, etc.), but more of the practical setups and combos that can be used in a fight.

    What's termed as "tricks." Either in kicking/punching, or in the clinch. One example of a trick is this:

    For someone who likes to grab legs when you round kick them, fake a kick then jump in and right cross them. (Photos follow)

    If you haven't encountered such a book before, pls share with me what is the best book you've come across for muay thai. Thanks.

    Amazon.com is you friend ;)

    I like anything by Delp. He is german, so it reads a bit like an elementry school book. Also I picked one up at B&N called Muay Thai Unleashed that I liked alot. There are a ton of MT books out there, the problem is they mostly cover the same stuff. Once in a blue moon do I see something new.

    LOL! My e-book is popping up everywhere on the web! (OK, its not ALL mine, but significant portions of it were written by me....)

    Here's an alternate link, as the link above doesn't work for me.

    http://khunkao.com/images/MuayThai-ebook.pdf

    Also, check out the following websites and order these DVD's....

    http://ancientmuay.com/
    http://bareknucklemuay.com/
    http://buddhaisawanpath.com/

    The first two links are to Colonel Amnat Pooksrisuk's "Ancient Bareknuckle Muay" seminar series. He is an authentic MuayBoran master and is one of the 4 authors of the Thai Manual of War.

    The 3rd link is a 2 DVD set documentary on Krabi Krabong, which is considered the Father of all Thai martial arts. Students of Krabi Krabong typically are taught MuayBoran (empty handed fighting) first before the introduction of weapons, so the 1st DVD has quite a bit of footage of the bareknuckle fighting methods. However, as stated, this DVD is predominantly a documentary, not an instructional video.

    I'm a little hesitant to nutride this book because it was writtien by my old Muay Thai coach and had a couple friends in it but I think its an excellent resource.
    http://www.amazon.com/Fighting-Strat...4768965&sr=8-1

    It doesn't have as many "tricks" in it as much as it has tips for when to use tricks on different types of fighters. It goes a lot towards explaining my personal style. Which I found interesting because I had never read the book until I already developed a style. I was coached by the author and in hindsight can see how he directed me described in the book.

    I trained with him here in Atlanta before he went back to Thailand. The black gentleman on the cover of that book is my next coach, Richard Trammell. Pedro sold his gym to Richard when he left and Richard adapted our program to more Thai style kickboxing and Knockdown karate than pure Muay Thai. He used to tease me about what bad footwork my "Thai March" produced. Richard had a Pro boxing background and used to make me shuffle around the ring after every class to break my marching habit.
