Thai kickboxing is one of the most brutal combat sports practiced today. Also known as "the science of the eight limbs," it combines punches, elbows, knee strikes and kicks into a punishing full-contact fighting system that is practiced by martial artists and sport competitors the world over.

Bob Carver, senior instructor under Thai boxing legend Surachai "Chai" Sirisute, has distilled the teaching of this art into a systematic, lesson-specific curriculum that gives you all the tools and training you need to quickly master its savage techniques. Carver's unique, body-mechanics-oriented approach provides a step-by-step training progression that "burns in" proper form and reflexes much faster than traditional training methods.

Volume 1: Fundamental Offensive and Defensive Skills develops the building blocks of stance, footwork, the jab, the cross, straight knee and the devastating Thai round kick.

Volume 2: Advanced Thai Boxing Arsenal extends these body mechanics to foot jabs, hooks, elbow strikes, uppercuts and basic clinching tactics.

Volume 3: Hard-Core Training Drills and Ring Work takes you into the ring and brings it all together with high-speed pad drills, sparring and advanced offensive combinations and defensive tactics For information purposes only.
