Everyone, who is interested in martial arts, when mentioning Russian hand-to-hand fighting has, as a rule, two questions. What is the Russian hand-to-hand fighting (hereinafter referred to as RG - hand-to-hand fighting)? How does it differ from the martial arts, at least from those that are cultivated in Russia?
To answer these questions we must first of all define the classification of hand-to-hand fighting. It seems to me that some reporters, including some specialists - hand-to-hand combatants, do not have a clear idea of it. In my opinion, we should distinguish between three main types of hand-to-hand combat: sports, army and police.
Anything that goes beyond the above classification seems illegitimate or derivative of the basic classification. Attempts to give a sporting character to Russian hand-to-hand combat are also unlawful.
Enthusiasts who promote "sporty" hand-to-hand combat are simply mistaken. Unlike sport combat, existing for the sake of competition, spectacular beauty, knowledge and demonstration of human capabilities, RB serves one purpose - preservation of life in extreme combat conditions.
A real hand-to-hand man:
A true melee fighter shows his worth when it is necessary not just to act but to act correctly, in the best possible way in an unpredictable situation, when there is no time to think and can not make a mistake.
A real melee fighter is a disciplined person, who has a sense of responsibility, who can instantly analyze complex combat situations, lightning quick to make the only correct decision and, not least, - masterfully wielding his body.
Hand-to-hand fighting is not a fist fight or a combat sport. It is objectively a kind of military action, to be more exact - a kind of close combat, aimed at a guaranteed defeat of the enemy.
"Hand-to-hand combat is a type of close combat where the opposing sides use martial arts techniques with various weapons, equipment, improvised means, as well as without them at a distance of direct contact with the task of striking each other. - Combat Manual of the Ground Forces Part III
Hand-to-hand combat is a combat using invisible weapons, which cannot be detected until they are used, and cannot be taken away while the person is alive.
The basic ideological components of the RB system are:
Spiritual beginning is the cornerstone of Russian martial arts ideology. It cannot be overestimated. Spiritual preparation should occupy a central place in the system of training, although at the initial stage of training, as a rule, it is present implicitly.
In thinking about the essence of the matter, one is confronted with a group of experiences, unusual concepts that are difficult to describe in a language other than that of religion. Will and Spirit, Power as a manifestation of the Will - all these concepts, which are attributes of spiritual teachings, are present in the hand-to-hand combat system.
"Military work is difficult, sorrowful and tragic, but necessary and serving a good purpose. The means are cruel and unrighteous. But that is why the spirit, to whom these means are given, must be strong and steadfast in its true love for Christ".
A good blade is forged, hardened and honed over the years. The hands of the master bring to perfection every detail. There are no unimportant little things. So in the training of a fighter there can be no trifles. But how to forge his character, temper his spirit and hone his knowledge and skills?
Among the many factors that determine a man's condition in the RB, the determining factor is undoubtedly the spirit of the man.
The spirit lifts up the hopelessly ill, it rekindles from a smoldering coal a fire of hope. With God and Faith in the soul, the human
Spirit grows and hardens. It is the Spirit that expands the boundaries of knowledge and increases a person's potential. Willpower, Desire, and Faith can do anything! In extreme situations they make a person all-powerful!
The main feeling that reigns over all thoughts in war in anticipation of battle and in combat is the feeling of fear. It is impossible to overcome fear completely. Only a man who is unaware of the danger to which he is exposed can fear nothing.
Overcoming fear depends not only and not so much on innate courage as on instilled purely human qualities. One way of overcoming fear is to develop the habit of acting in the right way regardless of what is going on in the soul.
"There is no man who is not afraid of death. And if someone tells you that he is not afraid, spit in his eyes: he is lying. And I'm just as afraid of death. But there are people who have the willpower not to show it, while others cannot help but run in fear of death. I have the willpower not to show that I am afraid, but my inner struggle is terrible, and it affects my heart every minute...".
General M.D. Skobelev
Among the specific ways (known from ancient times) to overcome fear is the use of narcotic drugs. In the old days this was a tincture of fly agaric, and in the present time also frequently used special compositions by soldiers of special units, acting in difficult situations.
There are also other ways. We should not forget that a person deprived of a sense of fear can die in the simplest situation, because he will not be able to feel and assess the threatening danger in time.
Man is a complex psychobiomechanical system, and any complex system is best studied on models. A model is some other object that reproduces the essential properties of the original system.
This object can exist in reality, be displayed in a sign form, or be abstract. In hand-to-hand combat according to Kadochnikov's system, modeling can be performed in all three of these types.
The purpose of creating a model is to enable better performance when faced with a myriad of situations in hand-to-hand combat, and to learn how to manage this performance with a minimum of energy expenditure.
Building a "world model" based on the most meaningful and comprehensive categories promotes proper perception and management of the situation in difficult situations.
Traditionally, common systems of martial arts describe the process of hand-to-hand combat as a set of techniques, i.e. memorized patterns of movements used in defense or attack in each specific case.
Hence the need to memorize a huge number of complexly coordinated movements.
In a real fight, when complex conditioned reflexes are blocked, the organism as a system appeals to unconditioned and conditioned elementary reflexes, and the method of fighting with the use of a large number of "automatic" techniques has an extremely low efficiency.
In traditional martial arts training, great emphasis is placed on feeling the active internal processes occurring in the body. Objective processes occurring in communication with the enemy (the object of control) are described formally, sometimes with the help of "lyrical" images or analogies.
The principles of survivability (preservation of life and health) are unified for any situational environment. As a consequence, while taking into account the individuality of each person, a different style is worked out, as a personal safety technique.
Only a special approach, a methodology of training allows the complex use of physical, spiritual and intellectual stability of the skill on a subconscious level. No instruction can provide for all cases and situations that arise in the application of various techniques and give appropriate instructions, and therefore everyone must exercise their competence, guided by their training.
This is one of the main principles underlining the non-aggressiveness of the system, which is supplemented by the rule - one should never engage in a fight if there are other options. Only a real threat (an attack) by the opponent gives grounds and the moral right to apply the system's combat knowledge and skills.
Whatever our attitude towards weapons, weapons, there have always been, there will always be! It will improve and evolve, because improvement and development is always associated with the fight.
