WWII hand to hand self-defense video
Here's a short clip of a instructorial viedo showing a couple of self-defense techniques for soldiers, supposeldy dated abut the WWII era.
Guess the zorro maskas are to there to keep the soldier's privacy.
Besides, the defense vs. gun tehcniques do not convince me.
This jiu jitsu mix is called defendo or something like that.
The men in the black mask videos! I haven't seen thos clips since that special on the History Channel two years ago. Thanx.
Dang it. Can't find the garette instruction portion.

Sumus extra manum tuam.
The instructor demonstrating is William Fairbairn, the tall guy he demonstrates unarmed techniques onis Rex Applegate. This comes from an OSS film directed by John Ford.
Defendu is what Fairbairn taught the Shanghai police. During WWII, the stremlined version was referred to as CQC, Commando techniques or te Silent Killing Syllabus.
lol they taught good habits back in WWII... like sailors should splash around and kick like crazy to drive off sharks... never mind that they like their food lively
That guy sure likes to bring his "knee to the testicles." It actually made me laugh the second time he said it. But then again, I'm very immature.
These techniques are shitty, and I don't see how someone who has decent reflexes could let the other dude take the gun in the first gun defense. He's had enough time to just shoot.
This stuff has been experiencing a revival among the RBSD cats. There are instructors out there offering this stuff like it's revolutionary even now.
Also, not to defend it, but at the time it was being offered to British and American soldiers it was revolutionary even then. Applegate also taught knife combat for WWII, I believe John Styer was one of either his students or helped him develope the knife stuff, but Styer's book "Cold Steel" is still being published and sold. A lot of it seems to be built on western fencing. Lot's of blade forward and lunging riposte style strikes.
I gotta admit though the clip of them all standing in a line in those masks while throwing palm strikes up reminds me of something you'd see in an 80's music video. Pretty funny.

Sorry to revive this thread, but I would like those who have real fight experiences, do you think this stuff works? The strikes make a lot of sense, striking to the throat, nose, side of neck, groin, shins, side of knees..
Basically parts of the body that are hard or impossible to condition. My question is how this will do against basic kickboxing or muay thai
Thatís why we won!
