In which took part more than 20 instructors and adherents of army hand-to-hand combat from Poltava, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, and Kryvyi Rih.

At the training, the participants clearly examined how the system for the application of cold steel protection is being developed using the example of the basic installation of the US Army - FM-3-25-250, conducted a comparative analysis of this system with the Marine Corps and Special Operations Forces, mastered and strengthened the practical skills of using weapons in hand-to-hand combat.

The training program included the following topics:

I. An example of the formulation and solution of the issue of the development of hand-to-hand combat as an example of one of the conferences held under the auspices of the Command of the Ground Forces (theory);
