Hand-to-hand combat basics

  1. Disarming the enemy when threatened with a pistol (revolver).

Example 1 (Fig. 1).

Starting position: the opponent threatens with a gun (Fig. 1 a).

The defender, moving out of the line of fire, takes a step with his left foot forward – to the left, thus also achieving a reduction in distance. At the same time, with the right hand in a rotational movement, the barrel from the bottom up – from itself – to the opponent, and to itself – down with the handle, extends the armed arm of the opponent in the direction of its right shoulder (Fig. 1 б). Depending on the type of weapon (revolver or pistol), the hand is placed on the barrel or hand of the opponent, respectively.

Thus, the barrel of the gun upwards, and the hand is extended, the degree of freedom in the joints "off", i.e., the defender begins to control the opponent when their optimal costs using the rule mechanics "the longer the lever the less effort to move the body" (Fig. 1 в). Controlling the attacker through the hand as a whole, the defender takes the weapon in rotation. The gun in this movement turns the barrel into a threatening one. The disarmer at this time makes (in this case) a grab by the hair of the opponent (Fig. 1 r) and, in a squat, begins to turn around with the left leg behind him, tipping him over on his back (Fig. 1 д). With the selected gun, you can strike a striking blow or threaten the enemy yourself.

Example 2 (Fig. 2).

Starting position: the same type as the previous one (Fig. 2 a).

To leave the line of fire, the defender takes a step with his left foot forward-to the left, reduces the distance with the enemy, while knocking out the weapon with a counter movement of his hands (Fig. 2 б).

With the left hand, the blow is applied to the back of the opponent's armed hand, and with the right-to his wrist (Fig. 2 в). After this, it is advisable, without breaking contact with the opponent, and, grabbing his hand by the forearm and hand, apply a "couple of forces" (the elbow on itself down – the wrist from itself to the opponent) and sit down at the required level (Fig. 2 r). As a result of the movement of their hands and the use of levers, the defender "turned off" all the degrees of freedom in the opponent's hand, and by squatting, i.e., their weight, and shifting the BCC towards the left leg, involved the attacker in a downward and left movement.

Obeying the painful effect on the arm, as well as not coping with the loss of stability, the opponent rolls over on his back (Fig. 2 д).

 

  1. Disarming the enemy when threatened with a machine gun.

Example 1 (Fig. 3).

Starting position: the opponent deals a poke blow with the barrel of the machine gun (Fig. 3 a). The defender on a step with a substep takes a blow on the forearm of his right hand from the inside with its rotation at the point of contact with the forearm (Fig. 3 б).

Left hand at that time snap the neck butt and without interrupting the movement of the opponent, start to rotate the machine along the axis of the bore and apply a "pair of forces" (barrel down to the enemy – butt up to itself) (Fig. 3 в). The opponent loses his footing and begins to fall forward.  The defender, continuing to rotate the machine, strikes the attacking blow with the left foot in the popliteal fold of the opponent's supporting leg (Fig. 3 r).

The opponent's biomechanical system is completely unbalanced, he becomes easily controlled and falls. The defender, helping the opponent to fall, affects him with the barrel of the selected machine gun (Fig. 3 д), and, crouching at the necessary level, controls the attacker until he completely falls (Fig. 3 e).

Example 2 (Fig. 4).

The initial position is the same as the previous one (Fig. 4 a).

The defender takes a poking blow of the opponent on the right hand with its rotation from top to bottom outward at the point of contact with the forearm and simultaneously turns his hips in the direction of the blow (Fig. 4 б).

With the right hand, the defender grabs the opponent by the wrist and, turning the body to the left, crouches, applying "a couple of forces" (the barrel from itself to the opponent – the butt to itself). The opponent, having lost a point of support, begins to fall on the right side (Fig. 4 в).

The defender steps back with his left foot, frees the opponent a place to fall, who rolls over on his back, letting go of the machine gun (Fig. 4 r).

Example 3 (Fig. 5).

The opponent from the initial position (Fig. 5 a) strikes a poke with the barrel of the machine gun.

The defender takes a blow to the left hand with its rotation at the point of contact with the forearm, while stepping back with the left foot to the right, thus leaving the line of attack. With his right hand, he grabs the rifle by the butt (Fig. 5 б). It is not necessary to step up to the opponent in this case, because he strikes with a deep lunge and, having failed on the blow, himself contributes to reducing the distance  the Defender turns the gun butt up to himself, and the barrel at the opponent and simultaneously steps back with his right foot.

The opponent, deprived of support, and stretched forward and down, becomes easily manageable (Fig. 5 в).

The defender smoothly changes the trajectory of rotation of the machine gun: the butt from top to bottom to the enemy-the barrel from bottom to top to himself and crouches. The opponent twists in the vertebral column and, gaining acceleration, releases the machine gun from his hands, while falling (Fig. 5 r).

Example 4 (Fig. 6).

The opponent from the initial position (Fig. 6 a) strikes the butt from the side (right) to the head.

The defender, reducing the distance, steps with his right foot towards the opponent and meets the butt of the machine gun at a possibly sharper angle with his right forearm, and the left forearm at this moment, closing the bio-kinematic chain, helps to create a rigid triangle without much muscle effort (Fig. 6 б). The impact slip is performed by gradually increasing the angle of the meeting by turning the forearm inward and supporting the impact of the movement of the elbow joint forward – to the right.

After slipping the butt past the target, the defender grabs the right hand of the opponent and smoothly accompanying it, redirects the trajectory of the attacking movement down. At the same time, it strikes an offensive blow with the right foot in the popliteal fold of the opponent's right leg (Fig. 6 в). There is a twisting of the support platform of the opponent, the withdrawal of his OCT over the edge of this platform. At the same time, stability is lost, the opponent rolls over on his back (Fig. 6 r).

 

  1. Hand-to-hand combat using a knife and a machine gun.

Example 1 (Fig. 7).

From the initial position (Fig. 7 a), the defender, holding the knife with a straight grip, takes the blow of the machine gun on the blade, simultaneously turning his hips in the direction of the blow. The opponent fails on a lunge (Fig. 7 б).

With the left hand, the defender grabs the opponent's right hand and continues its attacking movement. The opponent loses stability, but still has the ability to restore it by stepping (Fig. 7 в).

The defender, accompanying the left hand of the opponent's machine gun in the General direction of movement, with the right hand armed with a knife, strikes a striking blow in his neck (Fig. 7 r).

Receiving a blow on the blade of a knife (Fig. 7 d) is carried out with its rotation from itself to the outside (Fig. 7 e), which is achieved by leading the blow away from the target.

Example 2 (Fig. 8).

The initial position (Fig. 8 a) is similar to the previous one, only the defender holds the knife with the reverse grip.

The opponent's blow is met on the step, with the blade down and with its rotation at the point of contact with the forearm (Fig. 8 б).

The difference from the above option is that in this case, the defender acts without crossing his hands, grabs the machine gun with his left hand and accompanies it in the main direction of movement, and with a counter movement of the right hand strikes a striking blow with a knife from top to bottom (Fig. 8 в).

Example 3 (Fig. 9).

From the initial position (Fig. 9 a), the opponent strikes a poke with the barrel of the machine gun. The defender meets the blow with his machine gun in the same plane (Fig. 9 б). Then, turning his hips in the direction of the blow, the defender turns his machine gun at the point of contact with the enemy's weapon (in this case, in the area of the forearm) from himself outwards. This action ensures that the weapon slips past the target and moves it away from the main trajectory of impact (Fig. 9 в).

After that, with a counter movement with the rotation of the weapon in the opposite direction, the defender deals a striking blow to the opponent who falls through on the lunge (Fig. 9 r).

Example 4 (Fig. 10).

From the initial position (Fig. 10 a), the opponent strikes a poke with the barrel of the machine gun. The defender on a step with a step to the right side becomes at an angle to the enemy's attack, reduces the distance with him and, at the same time, meets his weapon with the butt of his machine gun (Fig. 10 б). The meeting of the butt and the opponent's weapon is carried out on a catch-up course with the movement of the machine gun from the bottom up from itself to the opponent and again to itself (Fig. 10 в).

The opponent, having slipped past the goal, falls on a lunge and begins to lose balance, and the defender, continuing to rotate the machine gun, affects already its trunk on the neck of the attacker (Fig. 10 r). Without stopping the General movement, the defender controls the fall of the opponent (Fig. 10 д)
