After mastering the technique of throwing anyone upon your back with the D-U-R-A hold, practise carrying a man various distances. Try it over clear land then over rough country. Remember Commandos and Rangers! Watch your ankles when carrying anyone. Do not twist them on loose ground or rocks.
Sit down in the "Crossed Legs Position" surrounded by four opponents. Spin up to your feet and immediately throw the man on your left over your back, with the D-U-R-A throw.
After you have thrown the first man onto your back, let him down, spin around to your right and throw the second man. Spin around to your right again and throw the third man, and so on. (See Fig. 82).

Devoted as I am to popularizing amateur boxing and to improving the caliber of this particularly desirable competitive sport, I am highly enthusiastic over John Walsh's boxing instruction book. No one in the United States today can equal John's record as an amateur boxer and a coach. He is highly regarded as a sportsman. Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
