Basic Muay Thai Kickboxing Training Book Excerpt:

Whether you're looking to increase strength, confidence, coordination, or you're just after a kickass cardio workout, kickboxing will keep you coming back for more. The flexibility of the term has contributed to the sport's tremendous popularity. "Kickboxing" is something of a catchall term. In Southeast Asia alone, the word can refer to Cambodia's Pradal Serey, Lethwei from Burma, the Filipino Yaw-Yan, or the tremendously popular Muay Thai. All of these kickboxing styles allow the use of elbows and knees during fights. However, in the U.S. kickboxing is more a blend of boxing and karate. It strictly prohibits strikes with anything but the hands and feet. Attacking an opponent's groin, legs, or back is also off-limits. This book is intended as a guide for all beginners, whether they are learning to get fit, compete, or simply gain more confidence. All of the topic and actions will apply at some stage of the learning process, be it throwing a good straight right or putting on hand wraps, but the main emphasis at all times will be on keeping things simple and having fun. Here's the plan Chapter 1 A Quick History of Kickboxing Chapter 2 Warm-up and stance Chapter 3 Basic punches and elbows Chapter 4 Kicks and knees Chapter 5 Combinations and sparring Chapter 6 Equipment

Southeast Asian Martial Arts Cambodia Myanmar Thailand Vietnam Book Excerpt:

What martial arts are associated with Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar (Burma)? What makes them unique when compared with other Asian martial systems? This anthology is a convienent collection that focuses on the martial arts of these areas, such as the familiar art of Muay Thai, and lesser-known arts of Than Quyen of Vietnam, Burmese bando, and Cambodian leth wei. In chapter one, the David Allan brings readers inside the Lumphini Stadium in Bangkok to witness the fighters’ kickboxing skills and etiquette through text and photographs. He also records how musicians play and the locals participate in each event, with emotional exuberance of cheering, and betting. Jeremy Skaggs wanted to go to Thailand to train with some of the top Muay Thai fighters. His chapter allows readers to relive his experience through text and superb photography. He reports on his travel to Thailand, daily training routines, daily life there, and a night at the Lumphini Stadium. Chapter three by Jason Tran presents the origin and functions of That Son Than Quyen’s “spirit forms” as inspired by real and mythic animals. This is accomplished by contrasting Than Quyen with Chinese imitation styles, tracing the development of Vietnam religion and superstitions, and exploring the impact of geographic and cultural elements. In the next chapter Scott Mallon recounts excursions he made into Myanmar and Cambodia to learn about their indigenous martial arts firsthand. He reports on the Muay Thai-like systems and their similarities and difference, along with the special cultural atmospheres where these arts are found. Excellent photo coverage highlight the martial artists. Loh Han Loong’s chapter goes beyond the common views of Thai boxing by critically examining the way Muay Thai is portrayed in nonacademic sources, such as articles and websites. The manner in which Muay Thai is framed in popular culture is not simply the result of historical facts, but is a way of creating the Thai nation myth and the uniqueness of Thai culture. The lengthy final chapter by Dr. Winborne focuses on the bando system. His chapter explores ancient Burmese fighting traditions and their evolution to modern-day martial arts practices. Bando is a seamless amalgam of striking methods, grappling techniques, weapons approaches, and healing strategies from the Southeast Asian country currently known as Myanmar. This comprehensive self-defense system is reviewed and analyzed based on documented viewpoints of prominent masters and practitioners. The philosophy and principles that undergird the bando system are discussed as well. This anthology offers a concise overview of the history, cultures, and combative systems associated with the geographic areas of Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietman, and Thailand. Familiar or not with these martial traditions, readers will be find the chapters informative and photography delightful.

24 Ways to Move More Book Excerpt:

From roller skating to hip hop dancing, snowshoeing to tree climbing, fitness can be fun! Two new movement activities to try each month Features tips on how to get started, easy goal setting, and inspirational journal prompts Your body is made to move and is designed to adapt to a range of activity--climbing, sprinting, carrying heavy things, walking long distances. Yet today we move less than ever before. Yoga instructor and fitness expert Nicole Tsong wants to change that. She has tried hundreds of different types of movement and in this new guide, she shares which of those are the most fun, accessible, and body-beneficial. Detailing two new activities for each month of the year, she describes her own experiences trying each movement, then lays out a road map for readers to embark on a similar adventure, starting at beginner level and moving up through "Reach" and "Adventure" goals. For example, readers can choose to walk 35 to 40 minutes twice a week for the whole month, or they can slowly increase mileage each week working up to a 10-, 15, or 20-mile challenge. Tsong also offers quick tips for getting started, basic gear needs and costs, and a "Discovery" section with questions, prompts, and journal space so readers can explore their own movement journeys.
