About this title

It is the most comprehensive, user-friendly book on the subject of Muay Thai ever written.

From the Publisher:

Spry Books has recently published "Muay Thai: A Living Legacy", a definitive introduction to one of the world's great martial arts.

Although Muay Thai is widely recognized as an excellent form of physical training and a method of self-defense, as well as being an exciting spectator-sport, the emphasis tends to be on its violent aspects, while the traditional and cultural values on which it is based are almost completely ignored. With the aim of presenting a more rounded evaluation of Muay Thai, paying attention to its history and rituals as well as the fighting techniques, the girl-power team of Kat Prayukvong (researcher and coordinator) and Lesley D. Junlakan (writer and editor) spent over a year working on the book, having to struggle with inconsistencies and a virtual lack of written records, the Muay Thai legacy being largely an oral tradition passed down from teacher to student. The result is a stunning book, not only in terms of its content, but also to look at: rare archive pictures and superb full-color photographs lavishly illustrate the text.

"Muay Thai: A Living Legacy" is the first in a projected series of three books: the second and third volumes will focus on, among other things, more advanced techniques.
