    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Next repub project: Driscoll!

    A friend and WMA associate, Bruno Cruicchi Sarkissian, has loaned me two antique boxing books. The first [drumroll]...

    The Straight Left and How to cultivate it by Jim Driscoll, circa 1914-1920

    This book is in really good condition and will be a joy to repub.

    You can irritate your JKD friends by getting the hardcopy (when I'm done, of course) and showing it to them but not offering to loan or telling them where you got it. <evil-grin>

    Peace favor your sword,

    Will you cover his work with the Marine Corps, his influence on close quarters combat training in the Marines in the 1920's and 1930's, which includes "bayonet fencing"? And, will you consider a section of evaluation on his techniques which were repudiated, namely the bayonet fencing and knife fighting?

    I don't know anything about his boxing, or other skills. Your write-up will be appreciated.

    Is this "Peerless" Jim Driscoll? Or someone else?

    Thanks

    From my pre-repub browsing of the book, yeah, it looks really good.

    He was known as a very skilled and technical boxer.

    Probably not. If I do, it will only be in the blurb.

    You may not be familiar with my republishing hobby. I republish antique manuals. Though I have written one original book, that is not the thrust of my hobby. Old books by masters of old. :)

    The same. "Retired Undefeated Feather-weight Champion of the World."

    As Kirk says he will only mention this in passing, could you expand on this?
