Reviews - What do customers think about Ultimate Sparring: Principles & Practices?

Encylopedia of martial arts.  Jan 12, 2007
The cover says "A very informative and well-rounded explanation of fighting." This is not a training book. It is a detailed record of various styles. I bought this book in order to see if I could learn a new move or maybe a new training tip. This book seems to be a lot like an encylopedia of martial art styles. There is a short description of every martial art imaginable and some you have never heard of. If you are experienced and looking to learn some new techniques to use in the gym then this book is not for you. This would be good to read about the different rules of different martial arts. Maybe I should have read reviews on this book. I bought this book for the wrong purpose.
A very useful book  Jul 12, 2006
I've never seen a book that covers more(or half as many) forms of sparring as Ultimate Sparring by Jonathan Maberry. It's front-loaded with a lot of great information on rules, first aid, history, etc., and then moves into a style-by-style guide of sparring methods that really does cover the topic. I'm impressed. Very impressed.
This is by far the best and most complete book on sparring methods I've ever seen, and I have quite a library of martial arts classics.
What an amazing book! This is the kind of thing that needs to be in every military school and library, not to mention martial arts school, in the country. It's easy to read, packed with useful information, and has dynamic photos. Just great!
Marvelous Book!  Apr 1, 2004
I've been reading martial arts books for many years and this is certainly one of the finest and most thoroughly researched works I've ever come across. Bravo!
