2.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfactory, 21 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Warpflow (Kindle Edition)
I was hoping for a lot more from this book than it supplied. The basic premise is great and I indeed have trouble, as I think a lot of new producers do, in finishing tracks (and within a reasonable time). Unfortunately, however, I found the advice contained within pretty vague and unfocused. There are a few helpful pointers, I guess, for beginners, but not that many and I ended up skim reading most of the book. Perhaps I'm just at different point in my learning but what it said it could deliver, for me - it didn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good but not the best..., 10 Dec. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is quite good and does cover plenty of stretches. It's also well laid out and has an easy to read format. However it doesn't really cover all the different types of stretching (e.g. isometric, ballistic, dynamic) what they are for and when they should be used in your workouts. Unfortunately, the best book I have found is now out of print but if you can track down a copy then get Stretching Scientifically by Thomas Kurtz.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch!, 10 Dec. 2004

There is just loads of great and very practical stuff in here from drills and technique to preparing for gradings, mental focus and street fighting. This is my most refered to Martial Arts book - it's literally falling apart!

2.0 out of 5 stars There are much better books out there..., 10 Dec. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book based on the good reviews that I read here on amazon. However I'd like to redress the balance as it definitely doesn't deserve 4 or 5 stars. To be fair there is some semi-useful generalised stuff in here but it's patchy and given the title I doubt you will get what you hope for.
I would say if you are looking to build strength in your martial arts (which will also help your flexibility) then get a book specifically on weight training. There are many good titles to choose from but for a helpful and complete guide to the beginner I would recommend Strength Training by Anita Bean.
For stretching I would recommend Scientific Stretching by Thomas Kurtz. This is by far and away the best book on the subject that I have read. You will probably need to search the web for it though as it is currently out of print.
And for your martial arts specific training and drills I would go for Solo Training by Loren Christensen. In fact I would also get Fighters Factbook by him which is superb and probably my most refered to martial arts book - it's literally falling apart now!
Hope this helps and good luck with your training.
