Hand To Hand Combat

Just kinda pulled this one out threw it on the site. Any personal experiance related stories? Does anyone have martial arts training? What is the best type of martial arts? Any one got a good story about kicking someone's ass? Anyone got a good sory about getting your ass kicked? Hell, I just threw this out there to give us all something to yak about and maybe get a good laugh from.

martial arts

through high school i trained/studied in Shotokan Kempo, up to a brown belt. got to meet Chuck Norris when we had a competition in Oklahoma City. Sadly i gave it up for drinking a lot of beer and chasing tail the summer before i joined the Corps. It did come in handy when the Gunny was trying to kick our asses.

If you do not stand behind our troops...please stand in front of them....

My friend Jeff, from the Corp was on gaurd duty and they had a 2nd LT that was tring to catch the guys sleeping on duty. The LT. tries to sneck up on Jeff in the motor pool when Jeff is by a 5 ton truck. Jeff hears him and circle around the truck and catches the LT. from behind and body slams him 3 times. The LT. is piss off because of this and has Jeff see the LtCol. about this. LtCol. had heard about a 2nd LT. that was doing this to the guys and ask Jeff if this is was happening. Jeff said yes, it was, so the LtCol. called in the LT. and asked him if this was true. Lt. said yes it was true. So, the LtCol. tells the LT. that if he keep on doing this Lcpl Anders has the right and premision to body slam if he does this again to Lclp. Anders. Boy was the Lt. pissed about this. I laughed my head off when Jeff was telling me about this story.

Joe Wilk is a good friend of mine. Last time I talked to him, he had a contract with the US Army training soldiers at FT. Riley in hand to hand techniques. He is a level III instructor of Modern Army Combatives

I took a course at the Base Gym. Shit, had nothing better to do. It was based on ti quan do (sure not spelling it right). They taught us how to fall, kick and basic self defense. The instructor do a good job about surviving a knife fight. Lot of anatomy like protect you radial artery, kneck. Watch out for jabs etc. He also talked about difusing a fight without risking yourself. Lowering your risk was the best idea.

I got in to a fight in of all places Berkely CA at a gas station. This guy was begging for money. He was jaudiced and had his lips all blistered and burned up. I told him I had no cash and he got pissed and started a fight. I was pumping the gas when he pushed me. I pushed back an thought about the situation, how to diffuse this before I get arrested or injured. So, I covered him with gasoline. The guy just ran off. The class helped out in the end.

You don't fight with knives.

Army Combatives suck

The only reason we have the combatives system now is because Royce gracie did so well in the early days of the UFC. Jiujitsu-based fighting while wearing an IBA, ACH, and all that other crap is not a good idea. "Yeah, I'll wrap you up, take you to the ground, and try to break your arm- oh, shit, your buddy came up with a knife and now my kidney is punctured and I'm dying". The Marine Corps LINE training is a better concept, or the Israeli Krav Maga is another one. They teach you to make contact, kill or injure your opponent as quickly, viciously, and efficiently as possible, and move on to the next guy until you can access a weapon. Combatives is good for one-on-one if you are very good at it, but in a fight to the death, an armbar can't rival an eye-gouge.

Krav Maga

is the shit!!!!I only wish I could have studied that. That is by far the most brutal martial art out there. People remember one thing, avoid a fight, but if you can't remember no rules no referee's out on the street.No such thing as a dirty fighter.

good friend of mine was nam vet SEAL: one of the best. I was in NIUW (naval inshore underwater warfare) unit and got to know several SEALs...But Jim was the best i have known. Several citations for action...
Got out and joined the Berkeley California Police: about the most hostile job a man can get....did outstandingly well for several years.
one day off duty he was on highway and saw three men accosted a young lady. He jumped into the fray without a gun.
He "won" but at great cost: some muscles in face permantly paralyzed...
He quit the force...did some other jobs for awhile...
Retired from bay area transit police...

Let Freedom Ring Now is the time for all good men to up for our constitutional USA and against Progressive Socialist takeover!!!!!!!!!!
