Hi Guys

Hope you are all well.

I'd planned to hold off from starting a thread until I'd organised some advertising with Brian. But things have moved quicker than I'd guessed they would and the first print run has sold out!

I'm now advising that customers order through Amazon who are able to print on demand and offer cheaper postage than I am able.

I hope you like the book. It was conceived as a training aid and I have been careful not to glorify the author nor the gym - its about Muay Thai.

Muay Thai Book in pictures

Here are the first reviews:

"Muay Thai in pictures’ is an excellent resource for all those interested in the art of Muay Thai.

Anyone from the casual enthusiast to the Muay Thai connoisseur will benefit from the impressive sequential photographs of expertly demonstrated techniques. Thai boxers from the famous Sasiprapa gym in Bangkok, Thailand demonstrate 23 solo techniques, 55 techniques with a partner and a further 67 techniques with a pad holder.

I have been involved in the sport for many years and I highly recommend this practical visual guide to authentic Muay Thai training."

Tony Myers - respected UK Muay Thai official and coach.



"Thank you for sending in your book, it really is a great asset to any Thai boxing students arsenal and something that every one will use regularly to not only assist them with their training but also to monitor their progress.

I have had the good fortune (over the last 38 years) to have read a great deal of books in my capacity of being the publisher of Combat and fighters magazines but I have only once before come a across a book designed to be "USED" and not just read.

I believe that what you have created will be used for many years to come by thousands of Thai Boxing students and I wish that the same concept could be created/adopted for the other martial arts systems and styles. Congratulations for producing a book that is not only a very valuable tool for training but also a book that was obviously written from the heart and a Thai Boxing students point of view.

It WILL become a landmark publication and one that you will need to reprint for many years to come which, in my opinion denotes its intrinsic value to the Thai Boxing World. My advice would be for anyone that trains Muay Thai to get their copy now before they are too late and because a first edition will always be sought after more than a reprint.

Congratulations on producing, what will forever be hailed, a true master piece of student support in the form of an "A" political master class Thai Boxing publication".

Paul S Clifton - Publisher of Combat and Fighters magazines.



"Muay Thai in pictures is exactly that, a photographic profile of many of the core moves and techniques in Muay Thai without needless words. The pictures speak for themselves.

All of the techniques are broken down in each photograph (with relevant notes) so that they can be fully understood, and the guys in the pictures are actual fighters from the World famous Sasiprapa Gym in Bangkok, rather than glossy models that are so often found in other books.

I’ve been involved in Muay Thai for almost 30 years now, and I can honestly say that this is the best book that I’ve seen on the subject, especially as it dispenses with all the guff and simply gets down to what we want to know (maybe even giving away a few secrets?).

In the late nineties I was lucky enough to have been trained by the late great Chanai Pongsupha, and the fact that this book is dedicated to his memory cements the deal for me.

Buy this book now."

Looks good.

Where can I order an EBook version?
Sid Remmer

Nice question Rokdad.

The ebook (Kindle etc) is a bit difficult. The book is made up of over 1,000 images and Ebooks are not great with these, being a text based technology. Also, the filesize is problematic (again, due to the sheer number of images).

Things are changing with the advent of Kindle Fire (which can display colour images) and the like, so maybe in the not too distant future?

But for now, no.

Ahem... Phones, pads, tablets even pc's etc all have worked with image based books for some time.I have a lot of photography books, you can imagine how many images these contain. .PDF format works great and would work well for this book too, and no print runs :-)


Oh well, maybe one day.

Hi Dave - missed you x

Rokdad - sorry mate, I misunderstood your question. Thought you meant e-reader devices. Yes, I can send you a .PDF, just drop me a mail. One of the functions of the book is that by adding your own notes, it grows into a personal journal and I think even if you use .PDF editing software, this will be cumbersome. And it wont be so easy to use it in the gym. Tbh, I really think the actual book will be more useful to you but like I say, drop me a mail and I'll sort something out. Today! lol

I took the first, proof copy to training last month and the students loved it. I just left it on the side and said they could look through it. They were like kids at Xmas! What followed was "can we do this move?", "why is his guard there?", "how do I...", "how is this pronounced?" etc. In short, all the students were fully occupied with the contents and I threw the lesson plan out of the window. Instead, we covered half a dozen drills from the book and had an excellent session. Every one of the students ordered a copy!

I can offer great discount on multiple orders so if any instructors want to sell this new book from their gym, just drop me a line.

So now at last, we have the downloadable PDF version (only took two years!)

We have a new cover too, giving credit to the gym (Sasiprapa) and co-author (Thakoon Pongsupha) but other than that, nothing has changed.

If you already have the book, don't buy it again!

You can see all the details, more examples and links to the PDF download here: http://www.muay-thai-book.com/.

Please feel free to leave feedback and I'll try to answer any sensible questions :-)
