Re: Aikido And the military.
fm 3-25.150 is the Army's Combatives Manual. It is not a program for a unit. We use that as a base manual for training. Each unit sets up there own program based on the dynamic of the unit, and the pool of experienced instructors etc.
Did not mean to mislead anyone in thinking that I was reinventing the wheel.
Don't think I could come up with anything new or profound that anyone hasn't thought of before!
