Lines of travel and follow-up with European military CQC/unarmed combat, unarmed offensive assault actions

Military unarmed combat ranges as well as methods and means of striking and stamp kicking employments are based on the military science of close quarters combat.

The reasoning is to increase the chances of enemy incapacitation or elimination by sudden surprise action deliberate military battle proven methods.

Fast mapping assessment under actions on close quarter combat encounters will constantly identify available targets and European military CQC skills provide the capability for secondary target contact as well as continuous targeting through cohesive unarmed offensive and counteroffensive assault forward unarmed offensive assault relentless targeting.

Relentless forward target destruction is designed so the combatant can maintain momentum close range and destroy exposed targets until the objective is achieved.

Target selections in military unarmed combat are always vulnerable human senses or human anatomy life-support targets.

This is best achieved by the right tools for the role and achieving the objective of unarmed combat threat neutralisation by employing CQC unarmed striking and stamp kicking skills that provide expedient enemy threat neutralisation.

Muscular or body tissue targets are not considered primary targets especially against an enemy in full battle dress boots and body armour. In military unarmed offensive assault, the best means of enemy threat neutralisation is by covert silent overkill battle proven enemy threat neutralisation.

Any strike that is directed upward such as chin jabs should include raking or multiple bent fork finger’s eyes gouging if the eyes are in contact range.

Any strike that is round house as in diagonal upward or horizontal elbow strikes should have a retraction secondary elbow strike or hand edge strike component if secondary targets are in range.

The trailing leg on executing entry unarmed long-range offensive assault stamp kicks will immediately slide through to re-form a CQC stance enabling the execution of a secondary stamp kick or continued strikes targeting vulnerable human anatomy senses or life-support systems.

Stamp kicks are never retracted as this compromises momentum and is a take on means over the military CQC primary threat neutralisation modus operandi of pressing the assault until the threat is taken out.

Battle proven combinations at point blank bodily contact range also include upper and lower quadrant targeting by means of rapid cohesive simultaneous striking stamp kicking and kneeing unarmed offensive assault actions.

Many of the unarmed offensive assault continuous cohesive combination actions are based on enemy’s predictable autonomic human reactions to deliberate targeting of life support human anatomy CQC primary targets that may well expose or make other targets vulnerable to simultaneous destruction.

Striking is to penetrate vulnerable human bodily senses or life-support systems or cause life-threatening internal injuries.

Multiple or combination striking skills to the most vulnerable of human anatomy targets increases the chances of threat neutralisation for the battle field by considerable.

Stamp kicking under unarmed offensive entry assault or from point blank bodily contact range provides the capability to destroy the integrity of the knee joint or knee cap immediately decentralising the enemy and leaving them exposed to ground continuation assault.
