    Greg Thompson is the creator of SOCP (Special Operations Combatives Program). On March 23, 2010, SOCP became the first officially designated combatives program for all U.S. Army Special Operations Forces. SOCP is now the standard program for fighting in kit. It has been adopted by all Special forces Groups, USAJFKSWCS, Rangers, Range 37 (advanced skills battalion), Air Force PJ / SERE and other Special Units. Greg is also training Federal and State Law Enforcement, FBI, ATF, Border Patrol, and Special Contract Units. After September 11, 2001, he was one of a small group of civilians asked to work as a Federal Defensive Tactics and Air Marshal hand to hand instructor in Artesia, New Mexico. In 2004 UFC legend Royce Gracie gave out his first Black Belts to Greg and four other students at Greg’s School. Greg had been training with Royce since the early 90’s. Greg also is a certified instructor Kru in Muay Thai with Black Belts in several other systems.

    The US Army— the most modern fighting force in the world—relies on the latest technology in smart bombs, fighter planes, and smart ships, but when fighting in the battlefield, all the technology in the world can be reduced to two soldiers locked in hand-to-hand combat, where survival is the winning prize. The most technologically advanced fighting force in the world relies on the best and most effective hand-to-hand fighting techniques ever developed. In H2H Combat, Soldiers Edition, the creator of SOCP (Special Operations Combatives Program), Greg Thompson, demonstrates the same combat and self-defense techniques he teaches to the Special Forces and Army troops. You will learn modern clinching, effective striking, basic weapon takeaway, knife defense, and grappling techniques that may someday save your life. This book is not only a must for the young recruit as well as the battle hardened expert, but also for anyone who is concerned about personal protection in this modern and aggressive world.
