I think it is very productive to look at the history of different warrior cultures and analyse the qualities that made them so successful. This is not going to be a quick read about a trendy workout program for an unrealistic outcome. I am simply going to go over some ideas that the Roman Army had for getting their troops ready for battle. The purpose is to give the reader a few ideas about how to take historical examples and adapt them to current weaponry in order to help them train to a higher level of proficiency. Keep in mind that I am going to have to leave alot of stuff out since this is not a book, but rather a quick jot about incorporating historical examples into current training methods.
Throughout history, warriors of all types learned the hard way that physical fitness pertaining to their style of fighting was absolutely necessary. If we look at warrior training from successful militaries around the world and throughout history, there are many examples that show a pattern of focus on methods of conditioning and fitness priorities.
This is going to be a general overview of the history and concept of using a knife to defend yourself against imminent death. This kind of combat has been around for centuries and has alot of lessons behind it, if you are paying attention to your history. There is absolutely no free lunch in this type of combat since sometimes you are just going to break even in terms of returned damage. Nevertheless, this is an important discussion as many people carry bladed instruments, or multiple, just in case the situation gets so bad that you have to revert to this ancient and deadly art of defense.
On my blog and on my channel, I started out just looking at gear and doing discussions on related topics. This chapter I am going to be starting has to do with guns and gear, but in a way that provides a big picture. I have always enjoyed war history. The fighting we have done since the beginning of our existence can tell us alot about how to avoid the same mistakes. In war, there are so many variables that have an effect on the outcome. I am hoping to dive into a few examples of what kind of things can determine an outcome.
