    So basically, he wants to stab other guys in the foot with his spear?

    Knowing him, it's because he wants to return to the era where men went into battle naked and loved one another roughly from behind afterward.

    When you lose your gun, you use a knife / bayonet / big fucking stick, whatever.

    Presumably, you don't try to fucking box and wrestle unless you're totally out of options.

    I didn't look at the clip, so I don't know if the guy was any good, but you asked why they'd teach 'traditional arts like pentjak silat' That's probably why.

    Also, as pointed out, BJJ, boxing, MT etc is well represented in the military, either in combatives or non-mandatory clubs. The weapon work is not INSTEAD of these things, it's as well as.

    ****, I dunno, talk to Jimjude, he does silat and BJJ (I think) and he's military. He can probably give you a better answer.

    Also a point that hasn't been mentioned yet is the police/restraining aspects of combatives. Seems like the current conflicts are/were more oriented towards policing so that's what's emphasized. In other conflicts where that doesn't seem so much the case you had more of "teh deadly". This is really out of my expertise so I'm sure that will be corrected as needed and built on but I thought I'd bring that up.

    Plus the spirit building aspect a la pugil stick training and the like, but that's been touched on already.

    He's also insane.

    Uh,which military is being represented in that video? I know the U.S. has all but ditched BDUs(I think I've only seen a handful of service members wear that...mostly its all the digital print now). Anyways, as has been said, U.S. Army does combatives, which is watered down BJJ at least for Level 1(I admit ignorance on the entire curriculum...as I haven't even gotten Level 1 certified...bleh).
