USSR Militia Close Combat: Club, Knife, Shovel
Secrets of Communist Police Hand-to-Hand
63 pages; 10 chapters and 1 appendix
After WW2, the USSR formed a massive national police force called the Soviet
Militia. Its job was to enforce the laws of the Soviet Union. Besides numerous
annual killings, that Soviet Militia found itself embroiled in many hand-to-
hand combat situations. The e-book, USSR Militia Close Combat: Club,
Knife, Shovel describes the training and philosophy that was an important
part of the Militia recruit’s curriculum. Within USSR Militia Close Combat:
Club, Knife, Shovel the reader will learn offensive and defensive ripostes
employed by the Soviet Militia against Hooligan and Soviet Mafia, alike. USSR
Militia Close Combat: Club, Knife, Shovel also describes counter thrust
combinations of hand-to-hand fighting used against criminals employing the
knife or club. In USSR Militia Close Combat: Club, Knife, Shovel the
reader will learn that the major hand-to-hand weapon of the Soviet Militia
was the club or baton, and how that weapon was used to wrench, hold, break
and/or suffocate any who took on the Soviet Militia, hand-to-hand.
"In the combat training of Spetsnaz soldiers great attention is paid to their ability to engage in hand-to-hand combat and
to use hand-held weapon . . . an entrenching shovel is of special importance . . . it is a formidable weapon of the close
"the entrenching shovel is an excellent throwing implement - the range of aimed throw made by a well-trained specialist is
10 meters or more."
A weapon used as a hand-to-hand fighting tool, and, when used in the right hands, a throwing weapon also!
Again - - from Suvorov: "In the hands of a Spetsnaz soldier the spade is a terrible noiseless weapon . . . The little spade
can be used in hand-to-hand fighting against blows from a bayonet, a knife, a fist or another spade . . . Finally a soldier is
taught to throw the spade as accurately as he would use a sword or a battle axe . . . As it spins in flight [the spade has]
accuracy and thrust. It becomes a terrifying weapon. If it lands in a tree it is not so easy to pull out again."
