    1975 Soviet Army Close Combat Forms.

    There are two attachments, both are scanned pages from a 1975 Soviet Army self-defense manual. There are two unarmed forms (kata, pattern), and one rifle form. And, there is a page of conditioning drills. The unarmed forms are heavily karate looking.

    Looking at the book, there is a section of classic Soviet jiu-jitsu (jujutsu) style knife defense, gun take aways, etc. Then, there are the forms. There is a section for "cold weapons", the knife and the spade (entrenching tool).

    What I like about these illustrations, is that the pattern is more easily understood visually because they put the outline of an opponent who would be receiving the action, thereby explaining the action and and also providing clarity for the movement itself.
