The Jab and Punch maneuvers may be used with the cestus; see the "Weapons" section of this book for stats on this weapon.

Optional Rules: The Jab and Punch both take location rolls of 2d6+1; the Block doesn't take a location roll. Alternatively, ifyou wish to better simulate the way boxing took place in classical Greece, you can say that the Jab and Punch are automatically head shots but do no extra damage for striking the head (no multiples of STUN or BODY), since ancient Greek boxing blows were only directed at the head.

Special Abilities: Because they are accustomed to the brutality of this style, some boxers may be able to sustain incredible injuries without falling (Damage Reduction).

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.
