Description

Excerpt from Boxing, a Manual Devoted to the Art of Self-Defence: A Perfect Treatise on Boxing, With Valuable Illustrations Showing Just What Positions to Take When Going to Lead and Also in Relation to Defence

There is no exercise that will so surely cultivate activity, endur ance and strength, as boxing. Besides being an excellent school for the nerves and temper, it also develops the body, gives symmetry to the parts, and grace to the movements.

Boxing has been called brutal those who hold that view look only at the worst aspect of the means; being an expert boxer does not tempt one to bully or fight, any more than being an expert pen man would tempt a person to commit forgery. Our experience has been, that the best boxers are generally men of great forbearance un der provocation, and we are satisfied that the knowledge of boxing, renders men not quarrelsome, but forbearing; for they feel that it is glorious to possess a giant's strength, but cowardly to use it like a giant. It is in many respects the best of all exercises; every muscle in the body is used; head, arms, legs and feet are all called into play; your tools are always with you; and we may say that this is the only exercise requiring rapidity and strength combined.
