Overview

In Boxing Lessons Simplified the following chapters deal with organized and supervised boxing as conducted today in colleges, high schools, and recreational centers as to master the art of self defense in a competitive environment..

They are in no way concerned with professional fighting, with which amateur boxing should at no time be confused.

Professional fighting is a business conducted for monetary gain. Amateur boxing is a competitive sport or recreation.

These distinctions should be kept in mind at all times. We are directing our instructions, advice, and suggestions to the coach supervising boxers individually or in groups; to the boy who, motivated by a desire for competitive or recreational activity, wishes to learn the fundamentals of boxing; and also to the father who acquiesces to the urge to teach his son the art of boxing.

We intend to be very fundamental in our approach, and thus to enable even an inexperienced coach to put across readily an effective instructional program to his boys.

We want to make it possible for the boy to whom personal supervision is unavailable to teach himself. We also hope to save the father lacking in boxing experience the ignominy of receiving a "shiner" as he attempts on bended knees to impart to his son the principles of the "manly art."

We believe that too often the fundamentals of boxing are overlooked in favor of complicated punches, series of maneuvers, and fancy footwork.

Just as fundamentals such as tackling and blocking pay off in football, so it is the properly executed left jab, straight right, and an occasional left hook that bring victory in the boxing ring.

Experience has proven that the methods of teaching and learning boxing employed throughout this book are just as adaptable to youngsters as they are to boys of high school and college age.

This publication comes complete with illustrations showing the proper stances and methods to master the art of boxing the right way.

You don't have to put up with the bully's and punks throwing their weight around anymore. It's time for you to put them in their place like your fore fathers did.
