Best Buy! 5

Reviewer: Pierre Maegaard Knudsen from Denmark
Since I am an instructor at a Taekwondo school, most of my own training is done at home by myself. And over the years, I have come up with a lot of drills and exercises for training alone. But I was truely surprised by this book. It is without any doubt the best buy ever, in a martial arts book. There are so many new things to work on, and new ways to do it. So I certaintly know have to spent my sommer.

A worthwhile purchase for martial artists 5

Reviewer: Jason Schofield from Fairview AB
I found this book to be a thorough,clever, and frequently funny approach to an important aspect of martial arts training. How many of us have been forced to spend hours training alone? I would guess that most of us have been in this situation at one time or another. That's what makes this book such a worthwhile purchase for martial artists. I don't think Christenson would say his book is exhaustive, but it will serve as a launch pad for you to create your own great solo workouts. Give it a try!

Solo Training is fantastic! 5

Reviewer: Mike Selby from Canada
What an amazing teacher Loren Christensen is; he is the martial arts instructor you have always dreamed about. And while his previous books set a new standard in martial arts writing, Solo Training may yet be his masterpiece. This book is an exciting (yes, his writing is that good!) and enthusiastic exploration of training methods and techniques for training alone, outside of class time. Christensen's exercises and drills are easy to learn, and are the key to becoming excellent in your sport. Within a very short amount of time, you will find yourself surpassing any personal goals of fitness and competency. You will also be surprising your fellow students and instructor with your incredibly enhanced improvement. No matter what style, no matter what belt, and no matter how many years you have practised, you will never have been able to grasp the whole picture of martial arts without reading Solo Training. This is one hell of a book, one you will find yourself turning to again and again. Thank-you Loren Christensen!

This book is the answer to a prayer 5

Reviewer: Dr. Susan Eisenstein from Westchester, NY
This book is the answer to a prayer. Many times a martial artist must practice by themselves. But how to stay motivated. How to find the ways to keep you on track. Loren Christensen has provided an easy reading, thorough, and just absolutely great book to help you tain solo. You will keep this book handy and refer to it continuously. It is always thought provoking, informative, and just one book you will never be finished with!
