Overview

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book.
No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
The soundness of his instruction is impressively at-tested to by the feats of his University of Wisconsin boxing team in going nine years without loss to a collegiate rival in a dual meet.
In this book John sets forth clearly and concisely the principles of successful boxing just as he has imparted them for years to boxing classes, members of his fabulously successful Wisconsin team, and United States Olympic Team boxers whom he has coached. These pages are commendably free of unproven theory. Everything ex¬pounded by John is based on long-proven fact.
This book will prove a tremendous aid to boxers and coaches alike. I am particularly enthusiastic about the manner in which John dispels quaint and absurd miscon-ceptions about amateur boxing. This book is not only a masterful teaching instrument, but also a convincing selling medium for the sport.
Athletic directors in schools, military establishments, clubs, churches, and communities would do well to study the pages that follow. No one doing so could deny boxing its rightful place in any well-rounded athletic or physical education program.
