More > and training details. This includes specifics of diet, exercise, & grappling. However, he deviates from the norm in two important ways.

He includes in his text images of 9 techniques which he considers either confusing or foundational, rounding out his relatively short text with a recitation of Broughton’s rules which, like this manual itself, were authored before the adoption of the London Prize Ring rules of 1838.< Less
