    • A bit too short, but that's really its only fault. Slack does an excellent job of explaining positioning in an accessible way while also working in historical references (in some cases, some deep cuts).


    • Leonardo DeGrapli, Jack Slack.Jack Slack's YouTube podcast is what made me by the book. He is by far the best analyst that I have ever encountered. That said, this relatively short book is a fun read. 5/5. I will now consider being a Patreon Boy


    • An excellent read for those interested in understanding the basics of striking. Slack covers several different principles (angling, ring cutting, infighting) in broad strokes and examines the particulars of their application through the examples of fighters who exemplified each style. This book is a short and easy read, and my only critique is that I wish it were longer and more in-depth. But then again, his regular articles for Fightland provide that detail and more--it was there I learned of J [...]


    • Jack Slack's writing is a godsend. In his regular"Killing the King" columns on Fightland, he breaks down boxing and MMA events into their component pieces, always cutting through the promotional hype by reminding readers that it does not matter who the fighter is, it only matters what he/she does. Brilliant, compelling writing. All that being said, this book does not present anything like his best work. It contains three essays on fighting (footwork, ring-cutting, and Lyoto Machida), and while t [...]


    • This is a light short read on the basics of striking in boxing and MMA. Jack Slack introduces some concepts like angles, cutting the ring (or cage in MMA) and footwork. There is very little on wrestling and nothing about other forms of grappling for example. I enjoyed the book a lot and being very short, it takes a couple of hours to go through anyway. I recommend the book if you are a beginner in striking, particularly boxing. If you are well advanced this may be a bit too basic.


    • The great Jack Slack takes his excellent analysis to longer form essays. These essays maintain the quality that I've come to expect from Mr Slack. The section on Lyoto Machida is a little too fanboy for me but there is still a lot to learn. Overall, this book is an excellent addition to any martial artists library. Highly recommended.


    • An introductory booklet(57 pages) about the differences between brawling and smart fightingThis booklet is comprised of five easy to read introductory chapters to very important topics of the fight world:The meaning of angles.Cutting of the ring.InfightingDirty Tactics.Lyoto Machida and the pursuit of perfection on how to hit and don't get hit
