Spetnaz, and for that matter, all special forces, secret police agencies, and military combat specialists are trained to kill with thier hands. Where
an MMA guy goes for the jaw, a military trained fighter goes to break a collar bone, snap a neck, break legs and arms in one simple and smooth move,
smash a rib bone through a lung, crack the sternum, and so on.
Except the SAS (at least in the 80s and 90s) often encourage head shots and MMA fighters don't stand 2ft apart from one another battering each
other's faces like broken children's toys.
I don't understand lot of comments in this thread ... according to some people Navy Seals, Spetznaz and others are trained some hidden techniques to
break sternums in single blows and consume opponents with lightening bolts from their eyes whilst playing guitar hero.
They then kill anyone left alive with mind bullets and float up into the air carrying a 600lb carry load and epically back hand Chuck Norris and hope
the edge of their hand doesn't cleave down a local city building killing thousands of civilians.
Quote from Andy McNab (SAS Operator):
Nine out of ten times the SAS's job is to stay out of hand to hand combat. We're not big enough to attack other soldiers. Our job is to sabotage
power supplies and communications. We have an ethic of shoot and scoot. Source
Except you quote most special forces soldiers outside of hollywood nonsense and they say they are taught simple techniques that anyone can use that
don't take a life time to master and are practical ... but they avoid it as much as possible.
I don't like fighting much at all but even a person like me can see it's comparing screw drivers to spades.
