Pfc. Andrew Starke (top) and Spc. Joel Hernandez, both of the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry, grapple 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. Starke is trying to get a choke hold on Hernandez. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Patricia Austin, Joint Force Headquarters, New York Army National Guard)
