Elements of Unarmed Combat

Custom build your own personal "system":

Useful areas of training and study to find, train and develop the various "parts" -

To develop STRIKING:
Western BOXING
Muay Thai (Burmese Boxing)
Jiu Jitsu ATEMI
Old style KEMPO

To develop GRAPPLING:
Catch/Freestyle Wrestling
Greco-Roman Wrestling
Sambo (Real SAMBO/SOMBO)
Brazilian Jujutsu

A comprehensive study of the above will provide methods applicable to ANY so-called "ranges" of combat.

They will also provide ALL "techniques" necessary -

Striking, punching, kicking, knees, elbows, headbutts, biting, gouging, ripping, clawing, crushing, joint breaking(from the neck to the ankles), throws, trips, take-downs, strangles, chokeholds, and other assorted "nasties".

"Mixed Martial Arts". BULL@#$!(sounds like a f@#$ing breakfast omelet or pancake mix). This is real Kill Or Get Killed UNARMED COMBAT, gaining the ability and knowledge to EXPLOIT any and ALL weaknesses of the enemy and to NEVER EVER be caught by "surprise".

ADD to this the ability to USE REAL and EFFECTIVE WEAPONS and you have about the MOST comprehensive system possible.

Its not going to look pretty. It never does.

And NEVER forget HARD TOUGH and PRODUCTIVE physical training for speed, power, strength, endurance and TOUGHNESS. Get your self in the best physical condition possible. The better shape you are in, the more damage you can absorb. You will get hit, you will get hurt- how much is up to you. Last, but not least: Get your MIND right, DO what HAS to be DONE when IT HAS TO BE DONE BEFORE you have to make the decision. Kill or BE KILLED. Screw the BULL*&^%. Leave the poetry writing for later. when it comes down to it, it's just a matter of who is left.

PS. Check out the combat jujutsu series
