ANCHORAGE - Wednesday JBER hosted the US Army Alaska 2014 combatives tournament.

Soldiers from all three bases in Alaska met on JBER to take part in an annual combat tournament.

It's called combatives, a hand to hand sport that is much like mixed martial arts.

Wednesday at the championship matches soldiers stepped up to exercise their skills to win.

Your Alaska Link was there to watch these men and women go head to head.
