The competition is designed to test the hand-to-hand combat skills of the army's leading combatives practitioners for both men and women in eight separate weight classes. Held over a three-day period, first day bouts consisted of mostly grappling, while day two featured open-hand strikes and day three progressed to pretty much full out mixed martial arts fights. The final day also featured a tactical competition where teams of fighters paired off.
Also held during infantry week are the International Sniper Competition, the Best Mortar Competition and the Best Ranger Competition.
