Modern Combatives is a functional mixed martial art form combining Brazilian jiu-jitsu, boxing, clinch hitting, takedowns and groundfighting techniques. Combatives also employs techniques borrowed from judo, kick boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling.
All matches will be conducted at the Lawson Army Airfield passenger terminal. Preliminary matches will start at 8 a.m. Nov. 4; final matches will be conducted the afternoon of Nov. 5.
The competition will be followed by a Combatives Symposium on Nov. 6 in Infantry Hall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Topics will include safety, trends, and training. The symposium is directed to level 4 and installation combatives instructors.
