    i will def. buy it and support.

    i don't have a very big martial art library but this seems like very good stuff.

    i come from a Chinese martial art background, this really reminds me of a punch from Xing Yi style... hip punch, vertical lead, a lot of power (power being the focus).

    actually the old style English boxing and Chinese boxing have many similarities.

    it's just a shame most martial arts from that country has gone to sh1t.

    Yeah, it's sometimes good fun to point out the superficial similarities between pre-Marquis boxing and wing chun to your WC friends and then claim that WC is just ripped off English Boxing. ;)

    Happy to oblige.

    I have some more material to work on. Takes a month or two per book usually.

    Just had a quick look through it - some great advice that I will definitely be trying impliment into my boxing game. Especially liked the author's critical look at 'swingers'.

    Got to go work the heavy bag.

    Wait, are you Kirk Lawson?
    If so your stuff looks farking awesome.
    So many great books to check out.

    Yeah, his advice on simple training is worth the read if nothing else.

    Uh-oh. Yeah, I'm "that" Kirk Lawson. ;)

    My pleasure. I enjoy getting positive feedback about the repub projects. Any of them that you feel particularly strong about? I kinda like the really old ones. They're not necessarily "better" but the older the book is, the niftier I think it is to repub it.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Are you using chrome? I tried the first time round with chrome and the window just froze up, switched to firefox and after a minute or so it worked. It's a big PDF because of the pictures in it so you might just have to be patient and let it download.

    From my (brief) experience it works very well against guys who like to box square-on and throw lots of right hands (orthodox stance) or hook punches. Remember your footwork and keep mobile.
