U.S. Army Combatives – FM 3-25.150

9-08 Two Against Three


When fighting two against three, you should maneuver to the flanks either together or separately.

a. Together. If you can get to one flank together, with the help of restrictive terrain if possible, use strikes to attack one opponent at a time until you have defeated all three.

b. Separately. If you are separated, one of you defends as in one against two while the other attacks the remaining enemy with strikes and then comes to the aid of the first.
