This exact reprint of the U.S. Army's most current field manual on hand-to-hand combat (FM 3-25.150)reflects the first major revision to the Army's close-quarters combat program in a decade. It incorporates the latest training undertaken by Army Rangers with the legendary Gracie family, blending their proven ground fighting tactics with the Army's latest training curriculum to create a unique battlefield form of Brazilian jujitsu. This manual provides instruction in basic and advanced ground fighting along with the entire spectrum of vital close-quarters skills, including vicious takedowns and throws; no-BS punches and kicks; offensive techniques with knives, bayonets, sticks and entrenching tools; standing defenses against armed and unarmed attackers; and group tactics for both lethal and nonlethal situations.

Expertise in hand-to-hand combat is one of the fundamental skills of the modern soldier. Whether the task is subduing an angry mob or fending off a sudden assault by a knife-wielding enemy, today's fighting men must know how to instantly respond and prevail in violent situations where they cannot resort to firearms. This field manual shows them how.
