    Just sharing this clip I found for laughs. Thought of putting it on P&M but I thought a few BJJ guys would enjoy it more.

    If you join and are ridiculously good at an Olympic art, maybe. My old TKD instructor was in the Air Force and the majority of his time was spent doing TKD stuff.

    We used to do fun competitions like this in the Marines. It builds comradery and is pretty damn fun. The Marine corps has it's own style and belt system known as MCMAP. That being said, I saw a decent blue belt school a MCMAP black belt with ease.

    I was attached to the 101st during my last Iraq rotation and I was told that certain Commanders there would put on exercises like this on a large scale. We are talking 50+ if not more folks doing combatives at the same time. Would love to get in on something like that...

    yeah it's a last team standing type of deal. we always say the person who wins in the unarmed combat fight is whosoever buddy shows up first.....

    it doesnt look much like BJJ because it's not. you've got such a huge turn over rate in the army (the majority of soldiers only do one enlistment of three to four years) that it really inst practical to spend a huge amount of time and money training someone to teach the program. so the army has taken a few very basic gracie jj moves and come up with a three week program (level's one and two of a four level program) to teach other soldiers how to smartly defend themselves without a weapon.

    lucky some people take the program and run with it... it inspired me to find a bjj gym and add outside training to what the army's taught me and i've loved it ever since. it was a bitch to unlearn all my bad habbits though.... i got a little bit of cauliflower ear in each ear from months of getting triangled ha! anyway here's a video of a competition my unit put on right after i left.

    Soldiers look like they're roughing it and not much BJJ...But remember, soldiers train to kill. In a life or death situation, the last person I would want to fight is a soldier....

    Yeah it seems a bit limited. My lil bro is in the Army, seems like the military combatives are preety limited, I guess you could get to be a Blue at best in em. Mostly it's just young guys wrestling, with some know how about subs.
