Holding is like clinching (clinch) but is the result of only one boxer. Most likely a boxer holds his opponent when he is hurt, but may also hold when he is tired or trying to disrupt the rhythm of his opponent. The referee will use his discretion in calling a break, but will usually let the action occur as long as one of the boxers is still working with at least one free hand especially if they deem the one holding is trying to clear his head. It is of no advantage points wise as while holding the boxer holding can score no points and will thus be allowing his opponent to build a lead on him on the scorecards.
there are two kinds of holding: offensive holding, illegally blocking a player from the opposing team by grabbing and holding his uniform or body; and defensive holding, called against defensive players who impede receivers who are more than 5 yards from the line of scrimmage, but who are not actively making an attempt to catch the ball (if the defensive player were to impede an offensive player in the act of catching the ball, that would be the more severe penalty of pass interference)
a foul where a player impedes the movement of an opponent by grasping or hooking any part of his body or uniform; punishable by a penalty — 10 yards if against the offense, 5 yards (10 yards in college) plus a first down if against the defense.
Those points of law decided by a court to resolve a legal controversy constitute the holding of the case. The court holds that a certain rule of law applies to the given case and renders its decision accordingly. Pg. 232.
In aviation, a holding (or hold) is an area of airspace used to delay aircraft already in flight. Because fixed-wing aircraft cannot stop in midair, they fly in circles, which keeps them near their destination airport until it is their turn to land.
Consists of a single data file that can be ordered in its entirety or can be subsetted by time or spatial area. Examples of holdings are a single satellite image, or a hundred-year time series of monthly precipitation from a single source. Specific holdings can be selected using the search filters of the Search and Retrieve Tool on the Data page and then viewed from the View Matching Holdings page.
