Informative,insightful......a worth while purchace!,
This review is from: Solo Training: The Martial Artist's Guide to Training Alone (Paperback)
I bought this book because i was not being able to get to my martial arts classes due to work commitments and wanted some advice and ideas on some training techniques to keep my taining up and progress! And that is exactly what i got...
It is a great book for the beginner to the advanced, giving great ideas for training yourself and others, with limited space, equipment or whatever. It starts From grass roots stuff right through to more indepth detail of some techniques, giving you drills along the way to help improve and hopefully master each technique!
The only flaw is not ever technique has pictures. As much as they are described and thoughtout brilliantly, I feel having a visual reference would have been an added bonus for some practicioners!
For all martial artist I would have to say it is a must have as it helps improve the techniques you already have, gives you insights to new and different techniques, helps you think out the box a little in true Bruce Lee style phylosophy, and most importantly makes you revisit and check your techniques that you may have been doing for years, but forgot the whys, hows, wheres etc...
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and find it a great reference book when i need some new training routines on techniques, and it doesnt exactly cost much compared to some, more dogmatic martial arts companion books! Looking forward to purchasing book two!
