Kromm QuotesEdit

Sean Punch has commented on Boxing in the following posts to the SJG GURPS Forums:

  • On Boxing versus Brawlng versus Karate [1]
  • On the skill versus the style [2]
  • On parrying [3]
  • On its lack of an encumbrance penalty [4]
  • On using it with sap gloves [5], [6]


2008 discusses how boxing matches often have many punches which add up but how 1 damage punches are too significant while 0 damages punches are insignificant. Carnifex references a 3e Martial Arts rule relating to boxing punches doing FP damage. This is likely a mis-remembering of page 56's Protected Full Contact:

Alternatively, the Stun Damage rules can be used for the ring; the punches do full Stun Damage

(ignore the protective garments) as well as normal damage (reduced by the gloves or body armor). If a character loses all his Stun points, he is knocked out.
