Marine Corps Martial Arts Program: Hand-To-Hand Combat Training
U.S. Marine Corps recruits undergoing hand-to-hand combat training during Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) tan belt techniques at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. MCMAP is a combat system developed by the United States Marine Corps to combine existing and new hand-to-hand and close quarters combat techniques with morale and team-building functions and instruction in the Warrior Ethos.
Tan belt, the lowest color belt and conducted during entry level training, signifies the basic understanding of the mental, physical, and character disciplines. It is the minimum requirement of all Marines with a training time of 27.5 hours, and has no prerequisites. Recruits receive these belts after completion of a practical application test on all of the basic techniques of the Tan Belt.
The Marine recruits are with Alpha Company, First Recruit Training Battalion.

American Kenpo vs Karate, MCMAP, Muay Thai, Jujutsu
In this amazing compilation from 2016, my friend Manny Tenna has his American Kenpo black belt test. In this segment of the test, he continuously spars two styles of Karate (and if that second person is actually JKD, please let me know immediately, I will make the correction), one guy who has trained Marine Corp Martial Arts, a Muay Thai fighter (without use of elbows and knees) and a fellow American kenpo black belt who also trains what looks like Jujutsu. This happened at Arnott Kenpo in Eagle Rock. I guess we can call it a Kenpo Kumite. Out of all the Kenpo dojos I've visited, Professor Mark Arnott is the most genuine and humble person. If you guys want more footage from Arnott Kenpo, just let me know. I will gladly show more!

Today you get a little taste of what Marines go through during their Marine Corps Martial Arts Gray Belt course. This is the second course that Marines go through during their career.

This course was endured while on deployment in the middleeast. Instructed by SSgt. Maher and Sgt. Pabloaguilar.
They allowed me to wear the GoPro so I can make this badass video.
