[Preview] My First Book

Hey folks,

Haven't updated on this in a while, but having polished off my series on Igor and awaiting some directions from Nate I've decided I should catch my kind readers up on how the book is going.

The title has been changed to "Advanced Striking: Tactics of Kickboxing, Boxing and MMA Masters" to be more search friendly on Amazon and itunes etc.

The following is a quick copy and paste of the table of contents to let you know what sort of stuff is in there.

Some extra stuff might make it in but none of it will be cut. Page numbers at this stage are approximate so have removed them just for this.

The 8 fighters which BE voted for are present and dissected. If you have any questions or suggestions, drop me a comment or an email!

The book is under copyright (so please don't steal it) and photography is still being undertaken so I won't reproduce any full pages here, but I hope this whets some appetites!

Cheers, Jack
