This is the US Army's manual on physical fitness training. Beginning on p197, we see an section on wrestling, hand to hand training, and boxing.

The wrestling section definitely tries to channel the feel of old Greek vases, I feel.

Cheers!

Remarkably low guard in boxing ! No gloves, so old-timey bare-knuckle stuff (with open palm blocks ??)
