Today is the birthday of the Marine Corps! First formed on November 10th, 1775 - the Marines are now 243 years old.
To celebrate I wanted to share a little info on their martial art program. Yup, the Marines practice hand to hand combat. Named MCMAP (Marine Corps Martial Arts Peogram), it began in 2001.
MCMAP is a blend of many martial arts, drawing heavily from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling and Boxing.
Watch this video of UFC fighters taking part in the MCMAP program:
Fantastic MMA gym. I was looking for a place that was not too "Cobra Kai" but had serious training. They let you go at your own pace or push you if you want. Inclusive is the best word. I am down 50 lbs, look and feel great.
