There's a reason the word ''brutal'' is so often used to describe traditional Burmese boxing. This art - martial in the true sense of the word - has retained its merciless edge even as so many other disciplines have been watered down into mere sport. Through rare photographs and firsthand reports, author Zoran Rebac takes you into a world few Westerners have seen. When Rebac first traveled to Asia in the 1980s, he was a rarity himself - a foreigner determined to learn the legendary martial traditions of the Burmese and Thai fighters. His keen interest and discipline quickly earned their respect and gained him access to training methods used by the best fighters in Asia. In this book, you'll learn traditional Burmese boxing techniques from the basic stances, kicks and strikes through advanced ''experts only'' moves, experience the rich pageantry of the tournaments and be introduced to the grueling training exercises practiced in ancient times and the modern methods used by fighters today. Traditional Burmese Boxing is an invaluable guide to the fascinating world of the Burmese boxer. 1. BURMA The Martial Arts in Burma • Traditional Burmese Boxing) 2.
