O X

I'm tied up with Paco in the body pummel position. This is a neutral position because we both have one under-hook.

To start the pummel for the double under-hooks, I press my right hand flat against my chest and wedge it toward the inside of Paco's left arm. Because Paco also wants to obtain the double under-hooks, he is doing the same exact thing on the left side of my body. Whoever can get the double under-hooks first will have the upper hand.

I maneuver my right hand to the inside of Paco's left arm. Notice how I am hooking my hand around the crook of his elbow.

I push my right arm all the way through, obtaining an under-hook on my right side. I would have the double under-hooks except Paco now has an under-hook on my left side.

I maneuver my left hand to the inside of Paco's right arm, and he swims his left hand to the inside of my right arm.

In the hunt to obtain the double under-hooks, I begin the process of swimming my left arm through.

I maneuver my left hand to the inside of Paco's right arm, and he swims his left hand to the inside of my right arm.

Paco and I end up back in the neutral position we started in.

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.
