The purpose of this text book is to present the reader with both offensive and defensive examples of close combat.A very wide spectrum of techniques and tactics will be described in this text book. The original purposeof this approach was to allow the reader to select techniques that suit them personally and also meet their operational requirements.The techniques described and illustrated in this text book have been used in general warfare by Westernstates from the early 1900's onwards. These armies have always used close combat training programmesfor two main reasons;
First, close combat training promotes fighting spirit and ruthless efficiency.
Second, close combat training programmes are the solid foundations for self confidence on the battle field.
The amount of physical force used in self defence must be the minimum necessary to protect either you or others. This degree of force should allow you to either escape, ward off or neutralize an attack.
To fight and oppose with little regard paid to minimum force requirements. The amountof force used will depend on the operational aims. This may include neutralizing, disabling, capturingand killing the enemy.
Whenever possible, text book and video studies must be complemented with "hands on training" from acompetent instructor. First hand accounts from combat veterans will also give more credence to thetraining programme.
