Ever wanted to shimmy like Mike Ross? Gief's Gym is an absolutely indispensable part of my SF5 journey, so I'm more than willing to pay for it - it's a professional guide by an experienced SF player who's given a lot to his community, and finally there's an opportunity for us to give back to the author while getting a treasure trove of SF knowledge. I feel like a god-damn pirate while reading this because the booty is bountiful! Clear, easy-to-follow instructions and training methods that will familiarize and teach you both basic and advanced techniques and ideas that are in play during a SF match. And because of how it's all set up it will be a breeze to get that knowledge! This should be emphasized. Gief's Gym gives you useful exercises in SF that you get to play yourself - it's not just a guide to "how I perform to dragon punch etc" it shows you various ways to set up training to improve your skill with Dragon Punch, why you should use Dragon Punch, When you should use Dragon punch and, for those on the receiving end, tricks to punish the Dragon Punch. That's just an example of the many moves and principles, that applies to all characters in SF5, that you will learn and work on in Gief's Gym! I've easily paid more money for things I needed less and walked away happy, now I'm overjoyed. Arr! Muscle Power for your spirit, matey!
Gief's Gym is an incredibly helpful resource; complete with training tips geared towards beginners, veterans, and everyone in between. Munday's impressive game knowledge shines through in this clearly written and easy to follow guide. If you are looking to improve your play, Gief's Gym will absolutely not let you down.
I'm more of a fan of having a physical copy rather than a digital copy. That being said, a publisher out there should consider publishing this in a binded book. It's essential for understanding and mastering fundamental techniques that are great for beginners trying to get into the genre, or for advanced players going through for exacting their techniques and warming up. I'm so grateful someone took the time to make something like this.
As a recent Street Fighter player this book has been a tremendous help for getting into the correct mindset to play games and has without doubt helped my execution by leaps and bounds. If you're trying to level up in your locals and drag yourself out of Bronze or Silver to something resembling a respectable rank, this book should absolutely be in your arsenal.
Finally Gief's Gym is in paperback! Glad to be able to buy a physical copy not only to have handy when brushing up on SF skills, but also to support the author that put a ton of time into making such an in-depth guide. I'd definitely recommend anyone who is new to Street Fighter, or just someone like me who only ever took fighting games casually until SFV, to get a copy.
Being totally new to fighting games, this guide is helping me a lot! And not just that, its well written, well structured and straight to the point. Would recommend to beginners but im sure also intermediate could learn some things and hone their skills with Gief's gym training drills!
You want to get into Street Fighter V? You already play it and want to step up your game? Do you also want to support one the FGC's members realising his dream to help and improve the playstyle of many who struggle?Then this book is the way to go. You will find everything you need to know about the game and how to improve step by step.
Read all of Gief's Gym online, went from Rookie to Silver with his help and the help of others. Truly an invaluable resource if you're a newbie or intermediate fighting gamer and want to level up your game.
