Default El Boxeo PDC in the Escuela Cubana

Hello, where i can found this book? It is from Alcides Sagarra, the trainer who made Teofilo Stevenson and Felix Savon 3 times olympic champions. The book name is : El Boxeo PDC in the Escuela Cubana ; PDC = Periodo Directo Competencia ( its on Spanish ) And on English its something like : Live Boxing Competition Period in the National School ; But i am not sure if its like that in English. This book is selling at Havana, Cuba but i cant find in internet where i can order it or something. Please i need help. I think there is things where he talk about cuban programs and trainings. I really need that cubans training, thear program and thinks like that.

Greetings!!!

You're going to have a hard time finding a copy of Sagarra's book, my friend. I did some research to see what I could come up with for you. The book indeed exists, but none of the major booksellers have a copy to sell. There's none offered on eBay, either.

Amazon.com carries a three-volume series of books on "Escuela Cubana de Boxeo", written by Maykel Balmaseda Alburqueque.

If you're interested, here's the link:

The book exists; I saw it mentioned in several different websites. But there doesn't seem to be a copy for sale on the Internet. If one were so inclined, Cuba would be the first place to look. But even then, it's availability would depend on how many copies were printed. Unfortunately, the book must have had very limited production. Unless they get lucky, an interested party is going to have a tough time tracking down a copy.

you gotta go to cuba to get yourself a copy i'm afraid matey...
that said i have a copy and it really isn't going to help you at all. its an excellent book but not usable for most people. don't sweat over it.

get the books by maykel - he's a good friend of mine and really knows whats what, his books are technical but very usable. he just got his phd certificate come through a couple of weeks back although he actually completed it a good time ago.

And with Cuba's super duper technology (which has improved some) I don't even know if they have copy machines to make copies.

one is about the cuban school of boxing in a more general sense (worth getting 1st), with a bit of history in there, some quality explanations of the ideas behind quality boxing, and plenty of great quality explanations of techniques etc. the photos are about the most accurate and true that you will find - check out other boxing books and the example photos are always plagued with hideous errors, which is just plain dumb.

the padwork (mascotas) is interesting as it shows the cuban style of this which is based on scientific analysis and damn good common sense - you'll learn where to hold the pads which 99.9% of people do wrong in my experience (yeah there's more than one right way i'm sure but regardless almost everyone holds pads with some dodgy technique or uses them in the wrong way at the wrong time)

the other one is about the cuban system of selecting potential talents. interesting book but will be of little practical use to most people - unlesss you have a socialist system to play with and select your athletes from...

to my mind, these are the only genuinely high quality boxing manuals out there (i've seen a fair few, most of them awful, some half decent), in either spanish or english at least - maybe the russians have something but i've seen some of theirs that they had translated as textbooks for the cubans and they were not as good.

oh they print a fair few books mate, f*ck, you should seen how many i brought back after a year living there!
fidel y el deporte - a collection of (many) quotations of his on sport throughout the decades. real interesting. i got an edition with him wearing boxing gloves on the front cover, classic!
also another book also where he talks about his own little experience of boxing, over the course of a summer in his youth
