Its just been a thought thats pressing me today, but why isn't there a great emphasis on teaching Hand to Hand combat in the British Army? It may be apparent that it rarely comes down to having to resort to bare hands, but surely it would be great Phys and a brilliant skill for all Infantry trade blokes? I've noticed the US Rangers (I know they are SPEZZHUL FARCES!) emphasise it aswell as the US Marines, and what about all the IDF in Krav Maga? Is it just Politicians are to afraid of squaddies on the lash beating students and coppers to a pulp?
