Unarmed Combat Training Techniques

Unarmed Combat, or Hand to hand combat (sometimes abbreviated as HTH or H2H) is a generic term for close quarters fighting, particularly when the outcome is likely to be fatal, as in mêlée military combat or a duel.

This distinguishes it from combat sport. Usually the phrase “hand-to-hand” indicates unarmed combat or combat using improvised “field expedient” or muscle-powered weapons such as clubs or knives.

Close combat is the common term for combat within close range. It may include lethal and nonlethal methods across a “spectrum of violence” or within a “continuum of force” as established by rules of engagement. Unarmed close combat is sometimes called combatives.

Combatives is a term used to describe various hybrid martial arts, which incorporate techniques from several different martial arts and combat sports. Unlike combat sports, such systems usually have limited sport application and often focus on simple techniques for use in self-defense or combat.
