Today's ground soldier may be required to carry up to 60 lbs. of equipment when on patrol, or in any situation where they might be engaging the enemy. Unfortunately, mobility is then sacrificed in the name of protection. In a close-proximity situation, the modern combat soldier is at a decided disadvantage compared to his more nimble opponent but this is nothing new in the history of warfare. On the battlefields of medieval Japan, the Samurai faced a similar situation. This created the need to devise a new defense method that you can learn from today.
