Modern Hand to Hand Combat

Ancient Samurai Techniques on the Battlefield and in the Street [DVD Included]

Foreword by: Stephen K. Hayes
Today's ground soldier can carry up to 60 pounds of equipment. The trade off for this protection is a lack of mobility. In a close proximity situation, the modern combat soldier is at a decided disadvantage compared to his more nimble opponent.

In Modern Hand to Hand Combat, Isler, a veteran soldier who served in Iraq, has blended the ancient techniques of the samurai—warriors carrying 60 pounds of armor—with the battlefield combat needs of today's modern soldier. Step-by-step instructions are provided, illustrating how to effectively deal with life and death situations through movements and principles that have held true since the time of the samurai. With almost three hundred illustrations and a detailed DVD, the guidelines and instructions in this book can greatly enhance the fighters' ability to survive in combat.
