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.

My Description:

This DVD was filmed live at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton California. You will watch new recruits attend the USMC hand to hand combat school. The L.I.N.E. program has an emphasis on bone breaking and utilizing lethal force. This DVD is very easy to follow along with. You and your sparring partner will have a good time.

Official Description:

L.I.N.E. training is the Marine Corps' version of hand-to-hand combat which is taught to all Marines Corps uses these unique methods of self-defense because they are easy to learn, extremely effective, and can be incorporated into other martial arts systems.

L.I.N.E. training stands for Linear Involuntary Neurological override Engagement which means, that once learned, these movements become automatic reflexes in reaction to physical assaults.

These are the complete, twelve lessons which will 'arm' you with a variety of counter moves and counter strikes against physical attacks.

All lessons taught in this program are taught by Marine Corps Drill Instructors at the Marine Corps' Recruit Training Center in San Diego, California and occur during actual L.I.N.E. training classes.
