Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed for intermediate-level Thai boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters, Muay Thai Counter Techniques teaches how to counter a wide range of opponents' attacks.

During the last twenty years, Muay Thai, also known as Thai boxing, has become popular around the world as a form of fitness training, a competitive sport, and a means of self-defense. In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of Muay Thai: Advanced Thai Boxing Techniques, author Christoph Delp helps intermediate Muay Thai students (those with at least six months of training) further the study of their art. Delp explains the rules and ceremonial procedures unique to Muay Thai competition, demonstrates historical and modern techniques, provides training tips, and details the benefits of training in Thailand--experiencing the art in its country of origin.

A primary focus of Muay Thai Counter Techniques is on counter-tactics, or techniques used to counter an attack from one's opponent. Muay Thai is a martial art with a variety of impressive techniques; every attack technique can be countered with a large number of variants. No two fighters will react to an attack in the same way, because while most Muay Thai fighters learn the same basic techniques (as presented in Delp's earlier book Muay Thai Basics), each fighter will go on to learn a wide variety of secondary techniques and will adapt them to his or her individual fighting style.

This edition includes new full-color photographs throughout in which many well-known Muay Thai fighters--including champions like Saiyok Pumphanmuang, Kem Sitsongpeenong, and many others--demonstrate the most important techniques for competitive success.
