Hand-to-hand combat is the ultimate stage of military engagement. Historically, most battles ended with some type of close engagement, or hand-to-hand combat. In order to overcome enemies and to establish their superiority, many cultures developed and put a high deal of effort in the ultimate “mano-a-mano” styles. This form of combat is what has been dubbed as martial arts, close combat, physically defeating opponents and defending against threats on military situations.
But in order to be successful, training and techniques are of the utmost importance. Having said this, there are some “schools” that take it to the extreme. In this video, we get the opportunity to see the martial arts or close combat styles of several famed martial arts and combat styles, such as the Russian Spetsnaz Vityaz, samurais, ninjas, shaolin kung-fu, and several others. I must warn you that these guys are extremely insane and brutally intense.
