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.

Marine Corps MARTIAL ARTS Gray Belt Course

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. Every course is different, based on the instructor. Marines are taught the same techniques and values, but physical training is up to the MAI.

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.
