Close Combat, also known as Close Quarter Combat (CQC) was developed especially during the Second World War by Anglo-Saxon fighters based on martial arts from Japan (judo, karate and ju-jitsu mainly). In community fashion, it is designed by British Major W. E. Fairbairn. He also presented several Close Combat methods in his book "Get Tough! ".

Close Combat, which means Close Combat, was therefore conceived during the Second World War by British soldiers. They were mostly inspired by Japanese martial arts. In the Close Combat martial art, the goal is to neutralize one or more competitors. For this purpose, a range of lethal methods is employed. The simple goal is to act quickly and efficiently using all the means you can (bare hands, various objects, etc.). The Close Combat was designed for war, so the methods are highly dangerous. However, they are simple and relevant. Strikes are prioritized to sensitive points and methods are learned to be used when stress is at its peak. In this sport, the opponent systematically seeks to take the initiative of the assault and to destroy his adversary without concession.
