Jailhouse Rock

According to John Soet's book Martial Arts Around The World, Jailhouse Rock is "the stylized, organized fighting art of the Black American, developed in prison." As its origins would indicate, it is designed for effective use in close quarters and against multiple attackers or ambushes.

The sort of weapons used with Jailhouse Rock are those commonly available in prisons: "shanks" and "shivs" (homemade knives), various kinds of crude club-like weapons, and so forth. Refer to An Eye For An Eye for more information on prison weapons.

Optional Rules: The Elbow Strike takes a 2d6+1 location roll, the Knee Strike a 2d6+7 roll. The Groin Blow automatically targets the Vitals, but gets neither penalties nor bonuses for this.

Special Abilities: None.
