    Hand to Hand Combat (empty handed)

    Hello I'm a new member here and reading up on how people carry so many differnt weapons I was wondering how many have actual training for hand to hand combat using no weapon just your body and mind. So if you have any training list it and maybe tell a little about it.

    Ill start.

    I am a current blue belt in Cheezic Tang Soo Do Karate. It is a blend of Traditional Tang Soo Do Karate along with self-defence.

    I so want to study ju jitsu because I am lacking in effective hand to hand combat skills.

    Just started my daughter in Krav Maga classes. I would like to join her, but finances suggest otherwise. Also, at 400# I think falling on the bad guy would be at least as effective.

    If I had to rely on hand-to-hand combat, the results would not be good for me. That is why I CCW. My daughter is taking Tae Kwon Do so if I find myself in a gun free zone, and she's with me, here's hoping she's got my back.

    I think a solid base in H2H is more important than a firearm.

    Does growing up with two brothers count as formal training?

    No, beyond some judo I took for fun, I have no formal training.

    I have no pro training, but have seen a few options in fights.
    Most people I have come across know enough to get knocked out!
    Good H2H is taught on many different levels.
    One of my good friends has taken and trained hikido for 17 yrs.
    People like him is why I carry!LOL

    From my time in the military I was taught basic H2H, learned more from street brawls, Aggressiveness wins, and sad to say but I agree with above poster
    Sixto that good h2h skills are more valuable than a firearm, because you may need them just to get to your firearm. Of course this comes from an old fart now who could not punch his way out of a wet paper bag, but I could chew threw it and keep fighting if need be, its a mindset victor or victem!

    I've had formal training but in no formal style.

    I took H2H defense classes that taught dirty street fighting. Fishhooking, eye gouging, biting, pretty much a gutter fighting class.

    It was taught by retired and active duty military and law enforcment personnel. The whole point was to inflict as much volience in as shortest amount of time as possible.

    13 years USMC.

    Most of which can be summed up pretty simply.....

    A vicious attitude is everything
    Hit 'em where it hurts/disables, always go for the eyes if possible
    Hit 'em hard
    Use any weapon you can bring to hand

    Pretty is for the movies.....

    It's been years since my 'formal' training. Karate as a teen, and most recently educated by the USMC in HTH combat and techniques. I'm likely not as agile now, but remember all. The little woman won't volunteer for the practice sessions though. I'm an active person and retain my reflexes and flexibility. I also have a rather active/physically demanding job which in my opinion helps me keep whatever edge I may have. Still young at heart.
