Kickboxing A Framework for Success
Pat O Keefe
For anyone interested in kickboxing be
they beginner or advanced this is a very good reference book, aimed
more for those people looking for a sport related book (For those
interested Pat wrote another book CombatKickboxing which looks at Kickboxing more from a self defence
point of view). This book shows from the basic to more advanced
techniques from the simple yet difficult to master jab through to
jumping and spinning kicks. Also detailed are many defensive techniques
and blocks, combinations as well as drills to devolp speed. power,
stamina in fact this book does cover most of the questions you might
find yourself asking.
This is a book i would recommend to anyone involved in kickboxing.
