This gives me a golden opportunity to pick their brains!
I study and collect WWII hand to hand combat manuals, and train in a similiar combatives system for self defense.
I was wondering if the Wermacht/WaffenSS vets here might tell me about the unarmed combat training they recieved (if any)
Any details at all you could provide would be gratefully accepted.
Thank you in advance,

Modern military seem to be taking a more martial arts route, but that's off topic here so I'll leave it there.
