USA Combatives Championships

From 2005 until 2012 the US Army hosted a Combatives or hand-to-hand combat championship each year. Individual Soldiers and teams representing their units traveled from around the Army to see who were the best trained in the Army. This tournament was created to give Soldiers who dedicate countless hours to training a chance to showcase their skills in front of their pears, encourage unit commanders to emphasize Combatives training in their units and served as a symposium for the exchange of best practices and ideas between the trainers from around the Army. In 2013 this tournament was canceled due to budget cuts. USA Combatives would like to revive this tournament as well as host US Army style Combatives competitions across America.

I assume we will be able to raise enough money to hold the championship, considering the number of people we have trained and the number who have competed in past tournaments. On the outside chance we do not raise enough, what we do raise will be used to hold smaller tournaments around the country.
