ITBP troops to get advanced unarmed combat training to deal with Chinese soldiers





The face-off with Chinese soldiers at the Galwan-Valley along the India-China border in 2020 has triggered the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), which guards the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China, to start training its soldiers in advanced unarmed combat techniques to gain better combat skills in taking on opponents.

The 3 month-long training module comprises 15-20 different fight maneuvers taken from various martial arts techniques like karate, judo, and Krav Maga.

In September, the Indian and Chinese troops carried out disengagement from the Patrolling Point 15 in the Gogra-Hotsprings area.

However, there has been no development yet on fixing the standoff in the Demchok and Depsang regions.

About 98,000 defense personnel in ITBP troops are deployed to guard the 3,488 km long Line of Actual Control (LAC) running across from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh.
