I belive you're 'taught' alot but wether you get to do it unless you're in the Royal Marines Visual Team I don't know. You get taught how to rip peoples throats out and balls off.. It was on Commando: On The Front Line. (Obviously you don't get to practise this else there would be no Marines and alot of Medical Discharges, if you are lucky enough to have survived *text deleted*).

I'm told you do a few hours' worth of unarmed combat on the mats in CS95 during Recruit Training, basically it focuses on "how to bring a man down".

The Commando Display Team undergo a fair bit of training in this area (2 or more months' worth) and last time I saw them, it shows, as they are brilliant to watch. They use a great deal of humour in their displays if you watch closely, they always seem to end up black & blue too as they don't always pull their punches.

My advice, if you ever get the opportunity to watch a Commando Display Team in action, make every effort to go and see them.

So basically.
1. Shoot them
2. No gun or ammo? Throw something at them * repeat as is necessary
3. Get too close to you, pull out a knife, broken mirror, toothpick whatever is handy and stab em * repeat as is necessary
4. Nothing to stab with? Poke out an eye, pull off testicles/ear, ram combat boot at high speed into them *repeat as is necessary

In case you have no weapon are they have loads of ammo coming at you with AK-47's run like hell and call for artillery? Or ambush them, capture their weapons and give the other bastards their bullets back?
