  • Short Summary

    Funny footage of young schoolgirls learning how to box then having a big fight!

  • Description

    Virginia, United States of America.

    Shots of a college where women are taught to box. High angle shot of large number of girls boxing (approx. 50) on a sports field. "The boxing class here is voted the most popular in the school!" Closer view of the girls as they spar. They are wearing white sports tops and baggy black shorts. One of the girls boxes with a male teacher. Other girls stand around and watch. High angle shot of the teacher being given a hard time.

    "I can't give you anything but - biff!" reads an intertitle. Low angle shot of some of the girls boxing. Good C/U of a girl really giving it some to another girl who has been knocked to the ground! C/U of a dozen girls whacking each other. M/S of two girls fighting. L/S of the girls jabbing the air then throwing their boxing gloves in the air.

    Quite funny stuff. Their big baggy shorts look pretty comical.
