Combatives Training

One thing I’ve never done in the Army is get trained on hand-to-hand fighting.  We spent a day at the gym getting this training.  It was mostly wrestling skills, and honestly I don’t think I’d ever use anything I learned if someone were to jump on me.  But it was a fairly interesting day.  They call it US Army Combatives.  It’s based on Jujitsu. 

Here are the photos.

LTC Thomas survived.

  1. This looks familiar to me from my days in cop school. I think the only way much of this stuff would work is if you practiced it regularly. Anyway, glad to see the ranking officer survived the encounter…
