What sort of unarmed combat is taught in the army? Is is just all the basic self defence stuff? Is there a little bit of jujitsu and judo involved? I've heard someone saying the ground work is only for conditioning purposes. So what does most of it consist of?

In general its is just arrest and restraint which is basic but effective locks and holds i.e. Goose necks or Hammer locks.

There is a little Jujitsu in there with basic strikes. That being said not all troops will receive this training.

SF troops receive specific training based around striking and ground work but it usually depends on the unit and actual individual instructor.
