...Living or dead...This IS a dream!
What would it be?
Who would instruct?
The "who" would be more important than the "what" but it would cover all aspects of combatives. The noted "martial artists" in my list would not be picked to teach battlefield tactics but are chosen for their personal insight into mortal combat (and all have been personally engaged in a lethal fight with the possible exception of McGivern).
Just off the top of my head (so I am probably leaving out a bunch) and in no particular order:
King David, Jim Bowie, Nathan Bedford Forest, Wade Hampton, Commodore Perry Owens (that's a name not a rank, and I may have gotten it wrong), Frank Hamer, Jeff Milton, Alvin York, Herbert W. McBride, Ed McGivern, George S. Patton II, Ernest Khouma (MOH winner, killed 250 men in one fight), Jeff Cooper, and the list goes on....
Food for thought,
