    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Cultural Revolution-era military unarmed combat

    The images are from the 1966 to 1976 period. The struggle of that era was against several enemies, but the Soviets were considered to be revisionists. The images show a People's Liberation Army soldier bringing Soviet soldiers into captivity.

    I really like the physical posturing of the PLA soldier. Each solider is seemingly filled with the righteous energy of correct political ideology. Their expressions are also carefully crafted. The images are not only to clearly show technique, but also to encourage. They are a visual propaganda medium.

    Also, many of the moves are seemingly unrealistic -- the Chinese soldier just appears at the point of attack and cripples the Soviet invader. One of the many problems in war come down to percentages. If 100 PLA soldiers try to do close quarters against men armed with guns, and only 20% of the attacks are successful in an ambush in some Chinese city filled with alleys, that is still 20 successful attacks.

    I love this thread! I love military history...

    The upright postures are pretty striking, I agree. Also how the PLA guy is using demonstration quality kung fu.

    Somehow in my mind I have this stereotype that the Russians are all physically beefier so unarmed combat against them by protein-deficient PLA guys is a losing proposition.

    I also love how the AKs with fixed bayonets are all flopping around impotently in one arm while the Russian guy gets grappled or struck. Like, he doesn't even reflexively interpose the weapon or the blade between himself and his assailant or grip it tightly in both hands.
