Trench Raid.

This is coolbert:

Here is a very interesting web site that describes some of what is known about World War One [WW1] combatives [martial arts] as used by soldiers during a TRENCH RAID.

"WWI Combatives???"

BY: Carl Cestari.

Carl and Clint still teach the martial arts techniques of DEFENDU! The martial arts "form" as espoused by William Ewald Fairbairn [referred to as WEF in the web article]. An all-encompassing martial arts form that includes elements of wrestling, boxing, jujitsu, kung fu, knife fighting, firearms, and just plain "gutter fighting"!
