Combat is typically between opposing military forces in warfare. Combat violence can be unilateral, whereas fighting implies at least a defensive reaction. A large-scale fight is known as a battle. A verbal fight is commonly known as an argument. Combat effectiveness, in the strategic field, requires combat readiness. In military areas, the term is applied also to personnel, that has to receive proper training and be qualified to carry out combat operations in the unit to which they are assigned.
Combat may take place under a specific set of rules or be unregulated. Examples of rules include the Geneva Conventions (covering the treatment of people in war), medieval chivalry, the Marquess of Queensberry rules (covering boxing) and several forms of combat sports.

Combat in warfare involves two or more opposing military organizations, usually fighting for nations at war (although guerrilla warfare and suppression of insurgencies can fall outside this definition). Warfare falls under the laws of war, which govern its purposes and conduct, and protect the rights of combatants and non-combatants.

Combat may be armed (using weapons) or unarmed (not using weapons). Hand-to-hand combat (melee) is combat at very close range, attacking the opponent with the body (striking, kicking, strangling, etc.) and/or with a melee weapon (knives, swords, batons, etc.), as opposed to a ranged weapon.

Hand-to-hand combat can be further divided into three sections depending on the distance and positioning of the combatants: 1. Clinch fighting, 2. Ground fighting, and 3. Stand-up fighting.

What Marine Grunts (Infantryman) see on a daily basis in Iraq and Shitghanistan (Afghanistan). What Marine POGs (Non-Infantryman) claim to see when they get deployed but they never leave the wire and sit on the FOB (base inside the wire where they are protected) the entire time with the Army, Navy, and Air Force. But they will sure talk shit when they get home like they did something trying to score some pussy. Don't let them fool you girls. If you are not a Marine Infantryman (0311, 0321, 0331, 0341, 0351, 0352) or a Navy Corpsman (8404) and even the Staff and Officers... sometimes (0302, 0306, 0369) then you ain't shit.
Marine Infantryman 1: "Man, do you know what I hate worse than POGs claiming to have seen combat?"

Marine Infantryman 2: "What?"

Marine Infantryman 1: "The Air Force. What the fuck do they do?"

When a female massages the prostate of her male partner (through the rectum) usually during oral sex.

This action usually leads to larger orgasms and more seamen. Messy!!
