Best Jiujitsu Ways Of Stopping A Boxer

By: Jimmycox
Exponents of the Tenjin School of jiujitsu have developed in all its possible perfection a style of stopping the boxer`s blow that cannot be surpassed for neatness of execution, effectiveness, and swiftness. It is a feat that applies only to stopping a left hand blow by the boxer.

This trick of defense may be taken up in three stages, and I shall describe each stage by itself. After the student has mastered all three of the stages he can combine them all in rapid succession, with the result that he is able to stop the blow and to have his opponent on the floor, helpless, but not in any way disabled. The entire length of time employed in this feat should not exceed four or five seconds.

Just as the boxer launches his left fist duck quickly to his left, taking your own head and upper trunk out of danger, at the same time strike the outer bend of his left elbow with the open palm of the right hand. The manner of dodging and of striking the assailant`s elbow is just one thing you can visualize in doing.

Always strike the adversary`s elbow with a smart, forceful blow. The effect will be to send him spinning around to his own right. The very momentum that the boxer gives himself in striking forward will aid in swinging him around.

This ward off at the elbow must be practiced over and over again. It is easy to give this fend off with fair speed, but this will not meet the demands of actual combat. Extreme speed must be developed, and this is why the trick must be practiced for a long time, and with very patient attention to gaining speed.

Both the dodging and the striking of the elbow are to be persisted in until nothing is left to be desired in the performance. And try to swing the assailant farther and farther around.

In actual combat the effect of this first stage of the trick is amusing on the assailant who knows nothing of jiujitsu, and who is not prepared to receive such a fend off. When he finds that he cannot land his blow, and that he is sent spinning around as often as he tries it, he loses confidence in himself. He realizes that he is at the mercy of his opponent.

Now comes the second stage of the trick, the throw. This must be begun the instant that the adversary has been fended off and sent spinning around to his right. Clap your right hand smartly over his right kidney. At the same time your left arm goes up under his extended left. Your left hand must rest on his right shoulder, taking a quick grip there, and the length of your left arm, of course, is across his chest.

Just the instant that this hold has been obtained and it must be while your assailant is still spinning to his right force him over backward to the ground. It will not be at all difficult, for his own momentum in his forced swing around will help carry him as you wish him to go. And thus the second stage of the trick ends with the assailant lying on the ground.
