When I posted these two posts above nine years ago, I thought that the
jailhouse rock (AKA the 52 punches) was just something that prisoners
had done for fun and recreation. I didn't know that it was a whole
entire fighting system with thousands of moves. Four people explained
it to me in the early '80s and three of them all showed me what I
described in the top link, so I thought that there wasn't much to it.
Someone told me that they used to "play each other for cigarettes" so
I thought that they were doing it just for sport, but it's a whole
entire fighting art based mostly on boxing.

You know how a boxer always keeps his hands moving to make it harder
for his opponent to see where the punches are coming from? They have
their own ways of moving their hands. It looks like they're having a
spastic attack or something. I just came accross (sp.?) it in YouTube
yesterday by chance (keywords "dirty boxing"). This is now my favorite
martial art ever.

in the video does it the way I described in the first post at 1:34
[one minute and thirty-four seconds into the video], but then he lifts
both arms up and crosses his arms)

at 1:32, two men describe an old friend crouching waist-level,
punching combinations to the kneecap and rising while punching,
keeping his hands up by his forehead and even weaving.

Lemme add one more video? It's a promo for a 58something-minute
documentary called "Jailhouse 52 Blocks Razor Fighting Movie." I
downloaded it on the net. It was very hard to do. Since I did, they've
changed the way they want people to download it and made it even more
difficult.
