“ТАКТІКА Combatives” system is the main direction of the Ukrainian Combatives Federation.

“ТАКТІКА” is the Ukrainian national system of hand-to-hand combat and tactical training. The system was founded in Ukraine in the mid-1990s with the help of specialists in close-in fighting and martial arts, officers and veterans of the Armed Forces, Ukrainian National Guard, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. During the system’s upgrade, experts from the United States, Great Britain, Israel, and other countries were consulted.

Although the system is based on the time and war-tested Combatives techniques, TAKTIKA is not a compilation of existing systems and techniques, but a fundamentally new system, which takes into account the principles of biomechanics, psychology, and physiology, operates system analysis, decision-making theory, and other modern scientific methods. The existing international experience in hand-to-hand combat and applied self-defense were also taken into account.

Our Combatives is a part of applied self-defense and hand-to-hand combat of the “TAKTIKA” system. In 2010, everyone received the opportunity to train according to the Combatives program. In particular, there were training and applied self-defense coaching for women, adolescents, victims of domestic and street violence. Today, there are also TAKTIKA Combatives groups in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and other countries.

In 2014-2015, hundreds of people in Ukraine have learned the basic skills of self-defense, survival and emergency care under the Ukrainian Taktika program.

ТАКТІКА Combatives is a complex and adaptive modern self-defense system that was born in Ukraine.

  • military (army hand-to-hand combat)
  • civil (techniques and tactics of practical self-defense for everybody)
