Boxing (Naval Aviation Physical Training Manuals)

  • Used Book in Good Condition

Boxing, originally published in 1943, was compiled by boxing champions and coaches to teach World War II cadets how to take a punch and fight back viciously, calmly and with deadly intent. The manual was so successful that the U.S. Naval Institute reissued it several times, and copies of the original manual are still in high demand. Get yourself into top fighting shape by following the combat-proven boxing drills used by generations of naval recruits.

    Bar none, this is the best boxing manual I have ever read. There are more modern books but nothing I’ve read to date has gone into the intricacies of stance, weight transfer, and all the ways to teach boxing. I read a book a few months ago about the golden age of boxing and how all the tricks and techniques used then and the trainers teaching them were gone. Well guess what? A lot of that supposedly lost information is in this book!

    There are a few typos and the pictures are extremely dated but this book has the goods.

    I recently saw a video selling the ringside face-saver headgear where John Brown takes credit for inventing the that type of headgear 15 years ago. Not so! This book was published in 1943 and lo and behold on page 19 is a picture of a very similar piece of equipment they had way back then.

    I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to box or how to teach others to box.

    This book is an outstanding Boxing training manual. During World War II, the U. S. Navy commissioned the best boxing coaches and trainers to build a boxing program (Navy V.5 Program) for Naval Aviation training. The Introduction states that “Boxing is the essence of the fighting man.” The idea was to transform young men into warriors. Accordingly, this manual covers fighting psychology (to be studied), history, instructional procedures, ring science and techniques (most important) and more. The techniques include punching, defenses, counters and combinations with detailed descriptions and clear photo plates (even though dated). Extremely well-written, it is a must for boxers, trainers and enthusiasts. Using this manual as a reference, I was able to develop a boxing program that includes: the speedbag; the heavybag; shadowboxing; jumprope; treadmill for anaerobic round simulation; and circuit training for strength and explosive power. This manual, combined with modern conditioning methods and technology, would improve any boxer’s skills and conditioning. Remember, we won World War II!

    I have always considered my book “Boxing” by Haislet to be the best book on boxing instruction especially since it was obviously used by Bruce Lee in the “Tao of Jeet Kune Do”.

    Well, that was before I received my copy of this book… this book has excellent instruction material AND good training plans. The pictures are a little grainy because it is a reprint of a manual from 1943 but you can see great detail in the movements shown.

    It is an encyclopedia on boxing.
    It covers all aspects of boxing punches, guards, footwork, lesson plans, drills. As well as the aspects of “ring science”.

    Just remember that it isn’t one of those “fitness” boxing books. This is a manual on how to train a boxer on how to fight in the ring.

    If you want to learn boxing, get this book.
