The Complete Idiot's Guide to Kickboxing is one of my favorite martial arts books in my library. I really like this book because it is great for beginners and advanced students and is jam packed with topics to take your game to the next level. This book, authored by Karon Karter and Guy Mezger takes you through the stages of preparation, covers techniques, and gives you complete workouts. So why listen to Karon Karter and Guy Mezger? Well, Karon Karter is a fitness guru and author who wanted to learn more about kickboxing (and started doing it) so she could teach cardio kickboxing classes. Guy Mezger is a kickboxing trainer who has experience in the ring. He holds four world titles and also has experience in karate, judo, and freestyle fighting.
