The Human Combative Behaviour Presentation

Here is a first for Low Tech Combat.

I have spent a lot of time putting together a slideshow presentation all about Human Combative Behaviour. It combines some fantastic imagery and touches on many of the key points from the Manifesto aimed to educate people about human to human violence.

Here it is:

It is a very nice and presentable way to express some of the ideas contained in the Human Combative Behaviour Manifesto which is completely free to all email subscribers.

To watch the presentation above just click on the right (or left to go back) arrow to go through the slides. There are 51 slides in total packed with valuable information about human violence.

It is an exciting and new way to present valuable information to what is most likely a new group of people who find professional looking presentations a great way to learn new knowledge.

Feel free to share this around. The link to the slideshow at the slideshare site can be found HERE. You can view the above Human Combative Behaviour presentation there as well as many other great presentations as well.

I hope you all like it!

  1. Greetings,

    Very fine presentation. Thank you for sharing it here!

    All good wishes,


  2. Yes, I think the distinction between socially motivated and predatory violence is potentially very valuable. And I found this a very well constructed presentation that makes the point clearly.

    Perhaps nitpicking but I think the application of statistical data to the categories may overstate the significance of the distinction a little. The assumption seems to me when I run through this presentation, and I may be misreading it, that we are uncovering a natural fundamental division in biology, and then applying it to humans. If that's the case, I don't think that is quite what is going on.

    I think we are looking at perhaps different overlapping motivational engines for aggressive behavior that diverge especially in mammals but don't ever really turn into distinct kinds of behavior except when we limit ourselves to the stereotypical cases.

    Rape especially for example is probably both predatory and status related behavior. I think the same is true if to a lesser degree for assault, robbery, mugging, kidnapping, etc.. The presented clustering of properties in most cases can probably be explained in ways other than that dominance and predation are fundamental biological kinds of behavior.

    Perhaps most interesting and valuable though, the idea that we can predict the course of aggression to some degree by evaluating factors like the presence of other people, the presence of a weapon, the emotions involved, and so on. To the degree we can use the model to do that, I think it is a great idea to pursue.

    kind regards,
