Two days of hand-to-hand combat training followed the Commo Class.

Nowadays, the Army focuses on submission holds and Jiu-Jitsu -style movement, with the added bonus of using any conceivable weapon at hand to stab/bludgeon/electrocute or otherwise disable your assailant.

I had the pleasure of getting my windpipe crushed a half-dozen times during practice, as well as grappling one of the motor-pool sergeants to within an inch of his life (that is I on the right, below.)
