Marines close-quarter combat manual... or special forces hand to hand.. pdf?

Hello all.

Are there any marines or special forces or Navy Seals here?

I am asking out of curiosity.
Also does anyone have the U.S Marines close-quarter combat manual in pdf form? I have been thinking alot about learning soem kind of self-defence art but dont wanna fall vitim to the fake ones... i just wante dto learn some stuff from the real deal you know.. so i thought i;d ask here. Though i know i cant learn alot from just a book but atleast some of that stuff i could learn with alot of practice... i didi learn osme things from one of my friends brother who was in the maries but tahst was many years ago. I still know some of the locks he taught us both.

Anyway i just thought i'd ask.

Ya'all take care of yourselves.

Amber

I have a PDF of the USMC Martial Arts handbook. Is that what you're looking for?

You will have a very hard time learning HtH in a book. It is impossible to capture even the simplest techniques in pictures. Any technique is a fluid motion. A static picture can not convey all the subtle movements. You also need a partner for most techniques. The only way you are going to learn is to study under someone knowledgeable. Visit all the dojo's in your area, and see which one fits you. Each art is different. Each art has different strengths and weaknesses. If you truly want self defense, look for a dojo that does less tournaments and more "practical" self defense. Not saying you can't use Tae Kwon Do to protect yourself, but many of their modern kata's are designed to be safely used in a tournament setting without causing injury. I could write a book about picking a dojo, but I'll keep it short. The list below is based on my personal experience and is by no means comprehensive, nor is it intended to be a put down to any one. It represents the dojo's in my area.

Tae Kwon Do: + readily availible in most areas. very popular. lots of kicks and punches . - Can be geared towards tounaments. limited weapons training. May discourage firearms.
Karate: + also popular. Many kicks and hand strikes. - limited weapons training.
Akido: good blend of strikes and holds. Teaches some weapons use. -may not be available close to you. can get somewhat mystical. You can see examples of this in steven segal movies, but don't let that scare you away.
Kung Fu: + many strikes. Great way to get in shape. - can be very mystical can be hard on the body. Bruce Lee's art before he developed his own.
Ninjutsu: + blend of Strikes and holds. Extensive weapons training including firearms. -can be somewhat mystical. Dojo's may be hard to find. Finding authentic dojos can be even harder. Similar to Akido in style. Look for one that is part of the Bujinkan system.

I studied ninjutsu before I had to direct my money towards family. Obviously, that's the one I know most about. I have never seen a movie with authentic ninjutsu. When I was training, most trainees preferred the term shinobi to ninja, due to hollywood.
Good luck.

Amber, you appear to be aware of the limitations of learning such techniques from a manual. In my opinion, the only value manuals like the ones you describe have is for review by those who have already had, or are currently taking, live instruction. Learning self defense from a manual is much like trying to learn to ride a bicycle or learn how to swim by reading about it. As a former martial arts instructor (Shaolin) I strongly encourage you to find an experienced and qualified instructor in your area. I admire your determination to learn these skills and wish you well in your quest.

I personally enjoy Muay Thai, which is mostly striking (hands, knees, feet, elbows) and clinching (someone's arms wrapped around you while facing eachother, and your arms wrapped around them) and phenomenal conditioning. Muay Thai is not the same thing as kickboxing. I'm looking for a good Krav Maga school around here. Check out bullshido.net for some school reviews around the country. Ideally what you do will give you some experience w/ stand-up and some ground game; the difference is that for a self-defense mindset one shouldn't worry about how badly they can mess someone up but how they quickly they can get away from the situation. Don't try to stay there and slug it out with them if you don't need to.
If I were you I'd check out youtube and google "MCMAP" or "Marine Corps Martial Arts Program" and see what they have available. The wrist locks are nice and can be practiced at a slow pace w/o risk for injury.
Also, I am unsure if you can access this without a CAC card (issued by govt to military and employees) but here is the MCMAP Martial Arts Center of Excellence website:

Check out the Russian Martial Art of Systema as taught by Vladimir Vasiliev. Many are skeptical of it at first, but let me tell you: It's the real deal. There are no techniques to memorize, only a few general principles off of which everything is built.

Depending on where you are, you should look for a Ryu Te school. Awesome self defense, joint locks pressure points, excellent technique. Not a quick fix school though. This art is comprehensive so it wont be a two week course, but the knowledge is invaluable!

Get a gun.

Not to be sexist but women just aren't strong enough for hand combat. Besides that it would take years to become proficient at it, and even then it's worthless because of the aforementioned strength issue. I got to a very high level of training in Marine Corps h2h and even though you can use an oponent's mass against them you still need strength to get them moving.

I'm a 240 lb gym rat and not to be arrogant but only a bullet from a gun could stop me if I got after someone half my size which the average woman is. Not that I would because that's just gross but please don't get a false feeling of safety around some pos out there.

There are a few strikes that require little strength like an eye gouge or cupped hand strike on both ears but they require you to be very close and precise.

While I agree, if you've got your hands on her already, the gun may not do much good.

That is true, if you're pinned that bad the only thing that's saving you is repeated headbutts and eye gouges. You don't need to waste money on schools to teach those pre-school easy but effective moves.
