Re: US Army combatives and aikido

Just trying to help you guys US. ARMY uses a system based upon B Jujitsu,... as it was developed by the Gracies . The truth is,.. that the system was gonna be... RIP but the guy,... got his posterior,... ungracefully wup,... on a UFC match by a guy called (The Specimen)..... the problem started when the announcer introduced him.. as.. a... US ARMY AIRBORNE RANGER in UFC 4 or 5,... and the Match doesn't last more than 35 seconds ... basically... he went for a shoot to the leg and didn't saw the knee coming in .....and..... poooof...... that was it..... of course this was seen as a discualifier of the system........ and then someone asked well,..... who the hell won the first 3 or 4?..... the answer was.......... a Brazilian named Gracie Sir and that was it I hope, I could tell you it was more complicated than that,... but no... that was it......... NOW......... not all soldiers fall under this rule of B Jujitsu based combatives specialized units S. Ops have the ability and budget to get specialized training from other sources,... this include G.Barrettes and Delta..... If you search the manuals for example, NAVY S.W. T you'll see portions made by Shidoshi Frank W. Dux formerly DUX RYU now F.A.S.S.T....... If you look at seminars for ST 1 or 2 on the Atlantic region, you'll see Paul Vunak as one of their favorite instructors..... if you go to the west side you'll see Frank Gucci, Rorion Gracie among others, this one type fits all is only for main force units, it doesn't apply to U.W. guys..... hope you have a better perspective
