ok so i recently watched a documentary on millitary hand to hand combat and i'm at a loss. to me it seems like the army is training there students how to fight better then the marines MCMAP system. let me go into further detail. aside from of course other than non trainable factors both systems cover weapons, and bare fist combat. however from what i've seen the army combatives being more recent seems to have enphasised applications and tons competitive sparring as its main bringer of skill. i've not seen as much sparring or competing from the marines. this is the documentary i saw. this is the army part [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6yJ_-urZxY"]Military Combatives MMA Mixed Martial Arts - Close Combat - Part 1 - Recon - The Pentagon Channel - YouTube[/ame] this is the marine part. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syHn1FL7R8k&feature=related"]Military Combatives MMA Mixed Martial Arts - Close Combat - Part 2 - The Pentagon Channel - YouTube[/ame] i understand both have the difficult task of properly training you in a slow amount of time, however to me it seems like the army's format of doing it through making you fight seems to do it better. this seems kinda of weird since the marines are first fight. if i'm wrong please tell me.
