    Banned from Boxing, 2nd Ed.

    I am pleased to announce the Second Edition of, "Banned from Boxing, The forgotten grappling techniques of classic pugilism" by Kirk Lawson (me!).

    http://www.lulu.com/product/paperbac...ition/15375563

    Blurb:
    "I recommend Kirk's 'Banned from Boxing' as a very good resource."
    -Terry Brown

    "...the most important work on classical boxing I have seen so far ... this book will be very very important in the history of this art."
    -Ken Pfrenger

    "Kirk Lawson's 'Banned from Boxing' is a unique valuable resource for the burgeoning study of classical pugilism as a martial art and combat sport."
    -Tony Wolf

    "Invaluable Contribution to Martial Arts"
    -Internet review

    Revisiting the subject in this revised and expanded 2nd Edition work, Kirk Lawson, a Martial Artist with more than 25 years of experience in the Martial Arts, both Western and Eastern, and an avid Western Martial Arts researcher, explores the exciting and mostly forgotten world of grappling in historic boxing.

    Using antique boxing manuals as reference as well as a healthy dose of experience, Kirk systematically presents in easy to follow terms and sequences the throws, trips, and grapples of historic boxing.

    With 90 historic images and new illustrations, modern martial artists and boxing historians alike will find this book an indispensable reference.

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    Looks interesting. Does this book cover how to get your opponent into clever head-chancery and other clinching tactics, per chance, or does it only cover throws?

    Chapter III - The Clinch and Chancery
    Chapter IV - More Chances at Chancery

    Chancery is one of the most important grapples in pre-MoQ boxing, IMO. There are three different Chancery holds (four if you include Klaus' "Art of In-fighting" - but I don't) and they inter-relate to several other throws and grapples, often as a "starting point."

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk
