Posted on 10/31/2022

MCMAP training teaches Marines the skills required in unarmed combat, weapons of opportunity, rifle and bayonet tactics, and edged weapon techniques. It focuses on hand-to-hand combat, the combat mindset, combat conditioning, and close-quarters fighting. Mental, character, and physical aspects are three disciplines emphasized in the martial arts program.
