Abe Attell, featherweight champion and the world's greatest boxer, in

l,,,ys—to teach them the needed art of self-defense and give them
healthful exercise—bnt they are just as good for yoong men and all

whether for fun, exercise or In a match.
I have seen many promiHiug box
ers ruined by losing their temper,
swinging wildly and giving an oppo
nent an opening for a punch that
stretched them on the floor.
Position Is important. Stand with the
left foot from eight to twenty tiwlms in
front of the right, according to the length
of the legs. This gives a chance for quick
foot work. Don't stretch the legs too much
or balance will be lost.
The left arm should be extended co
the glove reaches on the point of the op
ponent's Jaw. Cover your ribs and stom
ach with right hand and arm. The left is
your great asset, as it Is used continually
for short jabs and blocking. The left is
used to wear down the other fellow, while
the right la for heavy punches.
Many boxers don't seem to know how
to double their fists and broken thumbs or
buttered hands are the penalty. The fist,
closed properly, is a splendid weapon. The
fingers must fit snugly over the middle
wanting to knock a man senseless.
I try to wear down my opponents
with a rain of punches, preferring
to win on points.
The greatest fault with begin
ners is that they try to land
knockouts and in doing go do
much to spoil their future. Don't
try to knock out nn opponent. Use
your head us much as your hands,

ship. Take it easy at first. Watch
every move the other fellow
makes. He alert for openings.
Never be "uncovered."
Different boxers employ differ
ent methods. Some take 10
punches to land one. They lay
