I learned in the Navy as part of an elective Reserve course and used to practice with Fleet Marines assigned to my reserve unit. You can learn the basics with one of the US Marine hand-to-hand combat training manuals (I don't remember the number), but you will need someone to practice with.
I never had to use my training in extremis
; the one time a scumbag pulled a knife on me, I was carrying a 38 revolver.
He beat feet, so I didn't get a chance to conserve part of the world's oxygen. Interestingly, my wife used the same revolver 13 years later to save her life, when a paroled felon attempted an assault on her. He didn't stick around long either, and was re-instituted for parole violations.
