US Army Combatives

4 – Medium Range Combatives

CHAPTER 4

MEDIUM-RANGE COMBATIVES

In medium-range combatives, two opponents are already within touching distance. The arsenal of possible body weapons includes short punches and strikes with elbows, knees, and hands. Head butts are also effective; do not forget them during medium-range combat. A soldier uses his peripheral vision to evaluate the targets presented by the opponent and choose his target. He should be aggressive and concentrate his attack on the opponent’s vital points to end the fight as soon as possible.
