Where on the web can I find resources on military training techniques?

I have been interested in incorporating some military training into my standard workout routine. I am interested in both American training as well as Israeli, and any others that would be interesting.

I am also interested in both the survival techniques (possibly hand-to-hand as well as weapons handling), in addition to the general calisthenic routines.
When I say “Weapons Training” I mean more along the lines of managing a weapon in hand to hand. If I need to disarm someone, or if someone tries to disarm me.

I am already working on athleticism, I just wish to use military information as an all around workout to be prepared in different events… to keep me on my toes.

    WHY,what do you have in mind?MMMMMM!!!

  2. As far as calisthenics and physical training is involved, the U.S. Army does not have a work out program which will make you an elite athlete. Special Operations soldiers don’t even follow the Army routine to a T. Army outdoor Survival techniques are not really as in depth as you may be looking for. I recommend Outward Bound courses for Survival. Many former soldiers have published videos and books for combatives (hand to hand). You can find those videos at rangerjoes.com.The US Army is using Brazilian Ju-Jits-Su for their hand to hand techniques. You can take those classes in any city. Weapons training is not something that the US Military will publish to the public. I recommend going to a shooting range and asking some local pros on weapons proficiency.

    You’ve already explored the Krav Maga option, probably.

    Try http://www.russianmartialart.com/ if you’re talking more about disarms. If you’d like to do real weapons handling, try http://www.valhallashootingclub.com/ for size.

    By the way, a lot of materials on combatives and weapons use in the military is open source and available to the public.

    As far as resources for that go, Ranger Joes is crap. I love them, order a lot from them, but they’re a tactical gear shop. If you want books and DVDs, goto http://paladinpress.com
