  • Soldiers came to compete in a combatives tournament at Camp Arifjan’s Zone 1 gym, March 28, 2012.

In order to win, there has to be a competition of sorts,” said 1st Sgt. Luke Grim, first sergeant of the 56th Signal Company, and the non-commissioned officer-in-charge of the Camp Arifjan combatives program. “A brotherhood forms among competitors,” said Grim, “as the person across the ring also has to get through the pre-fight jitters and nerves. There is that handshake before the fight and the hug to end it.”
