    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Dirty Boxing

    I've been having a good guffaw as I've been transcribing Jame's Corbett's 1912 manual Scientific Boxing Together with Hints and Training and the Official Rules. He devotes a large section of his book to various illegal or dirty boxing techniques. He gives a photo of each and a complete description. Despite the fact that he always talks about how bad and dishonerable it is to use the given illustrated illegal technique, he still goes into detail.

    I just find it vastly amusing. "This is BAD, don't do it. [wink wink nudge nudge]." :)

    When I'm finished transcribing it, I'll post it up for free download with the other antique boxing manuals I've put up on my lulu site ( http://stores.lulu.com/lawson )

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    <shrug> In Hatmaker's books, he shows stuff like that under the premise that what you don't know can and will hurt you.

    Sounds like movies during the Hayes Code. There's be ninety minutes to shoot 'em ups and showgirls, then twenty seconds of the protagonist being gunned down and a title card reading CRIME DOESN'T PAY or some such. Just to keep everything all nice and moral.

    Dirty boxing is great. Some MMA dubs have sessions just for dirty boxing.
    It is one MMA skill that I feel is very useful for SD as well.

    You should read Ashida Kims dirty alien horn spear techniques.
