Staff Sgt. Sean Lockhart, 1st Battalion, 106th Regional Training Institute (left), grapples with Staff Sgt. Theodore Albright, 204th Engineer Battalion (right), during the New York Army National Guard's first annual Combatives Tournament, held here July 27. Combatives is a combination of Judo, Jujitsu and other techniques which enables American troops to prevail in hand-to-hand combat. The 1st Battalion, 106th Regional Training Institute (RTI), organized and held the tournament, and winners may have an opportunity to represent New York State in the All Army National Guard Combatives Tournament to be held at Ft. Benning, Ga., in 2014. Diaz is trying to free himself from a Albright's lower arm bar hold, and Albright is trying to pull Diaz down, using his legs as a counterweight to gain leverage.
