Basic Style Basic Style hits hard and fast, 2 attacks and +20 damage mod, with a -10 defensive sit-mod for protection.  No weapons are used.

Overall Overall the style is weak, a stripped combat form which is good enough for bar fights but has no maneuvers.
 If in the course of examining this material, you want to know more about AD&D, there are at least hundreds of sites on the web which may help; I'll just recommend my own two:
M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials as source material for many campaigns and situations;
and all you need to create a character, Character Creation for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition.
