    Thanks for the link. I'll look at it as soon as I can. I'm really interested in how they used to grapple and throw but haven't been able to find anything whatsoever on the subject.

    I've written a book on that exact topic.

    Banned from Boxing, The forgotten grappling techniques of classic pugilism, 2nd Edition By Kirk Lawson

    Save money by reading Kirk's free re-pubs; save time by doing your push ups before trying to leave him rep

    *push ups*

    When I click in 'Kirk Lawson' and scroll down to the .pdf version of it, it only seems to give me a preview of it. Is this book free? If not, I'll gladly buy it.

    No, "Banned from Boxing..." is the only one of my books right now that is not free. It's available as a tree-ware (physical paper-back).

    If I might be allowed a smidge of self-marketing, the 2nd Edition (linked above) has a very intriguing section on what I term "Pressure Point" attacks in the "Pull the Hair, Poke they Eye" chapter.

    Excerpt:
    At this point I would like to pause briefly to discuss
    what I will here call “pressure point attacks.” I want to be
    clear on this matter. This is not specifically related to any
    Eastern concept which some consider to wander into the
    bounds of mysticism. Instead we will focus specifically on
    only those techniques which have scientifically confirmed,
    repeatable physiological effects and are within the western
    boxing tradition. I will also note here that most of these are
    not specifically “grappling” related. I am choosing to include
    them here because they fit nicely within the “Pull the Hair,
    Poke the Eye” template of this chapter and because, for many,
    they are largely forgotten or are now illegal under the current
    rule set.
    All of the republished antique manuals are available as free PDF downloads. I think I'm up to over 30 of them now, IMS.

    I'm also excited about a new book I'm working on covering the historic Slungshot. I've had a number of surprises as I've been doing research.

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    Anyone learning how to fight should read Jack Dempsey's Championship Fighting. I'm pretty sure you can find it free online.
