Thus, in an attempt to highlight the originality of Fairbairn's material, the term did not appear in the edition of the book. Fairbairn and others expanded on this system to create the Close Quarters Combat system that was then taught to the troops.

This system was built on Defendu, but modified for military applications, rather than police and riot control. The original Defendu was oriented towards self-defence and restraint, while the Close Quarters Combat system concentrated on rapid disabling of an opponent, with potentially lethal force.

The militarised version of Defendu is described in the military manual All in fighting , used as a supplement during WW2 CQB-training. This book was later published in a civilian edition, missing the chapters on bayonet-fighting and rifle sighting, under the name Get Tough!
