Why I Chose MCMAP…

MCMAP is for People Who Want to Kill

The reason I chose the marines (MCMAP – Marine Corps Martial Arts Program) to pick on for my latest martial arts book is interesting.

Second, on inspecting MCMAP I could see that they had fallen into some of the traps Martial Arts systems fall into.

The basic techniques are drawn from boxing, not Karate or kung Fu or some other martial art.

The grab art techniques were out of order, and selected for reasons that go against the grain of self-improvement.

The relationship of techniques was not well addressed.

Don’t get me wrong, the thing works, and well, and especially in view of the fact that they are training a bunch of fellows that are often short a clue.

But it could be better.

It could be a real martial art where people actually suffer enlightenment.

And one of the questions I entertained, as I tweaked and rearranged MCMAP, was whether the marine corps would want enlightened troops.

On one hand, the soldier would be smarter, he would be prone to analyze, and intuitively, any situation.

But would he follow orders and go into the guns of the enemy?

Man, that was the $64,000 question.

And I think the answer would depend on the quality of leadership, and the information passed down to the grunt.

If a fellow went through MCMAP, and did become enlightened, he would have to be educated as to the value of the mission before charging forth. It would take smart leaders to do that, and the mission would have to make sense.

An enlightened man is as willing to put his life on the line as an unenlightened man. Maybe more so.

But he’s not stupid.

The fellows at the Alamo likely knew they would die, and just to buy a little time for their fellow Texicans to make up an army. They made an educated and enlightened decision.

And, should MCMAP take hold and begin transforming today’s modern marines, they would have to make the same enlightened decisions.

And I think the fellows in charge are going to have to be smarter, and communicate in a complete and thorough manner, their mission goals.

Anyway, it is a conjecture, but it is backed up by the fact that armies of the east have engaged in this type of martial arts training for millennium.

Guaranteed, whether you are a martial artist or a marine, or a marine to be or whatever, you will find the work scholarly and effective. After all, it is based on the martial arts of a very unique group of killers.

A True Survivalist Martial Art

This is the Martial Art that Survives

I read the so called martial arts that survivalists put forth, and I have to chuckle. Mostly, they are garbage.

survivalist martial artSuper spy pens that will kill people.

15 ‘Fight Enders.’

But the real truth is that if you want to survive you have to train for it. You have to get the discipline, get the conditioning, and teach yourself a real martial arts.

A real martial art that has been designed by warriors for warriors.

Not an art designed for children.

The United States Marines designed a good martial art. Those guys train themselves to kill. They are dedicated to the mission to stay alive.

So learning the martial art that they practice is a step towards serious survival.

Their art is called MCMAP. You can get if for free on the net if you look around.

There is one problem with it, however. It is designed for boots. For guys who don’t know how to fight, Some of the training methods are simple, for large numbers of people who can’t always count.

So I wrote ‘Fixing MCMAP.’

MCMAP means Marine Corps Martial Arts Program.

Fixing MCMAP fixes all the mistakes the military made, and changes their not bad martial art into a true martial art.

It aligns the training, takes out confusions between empty hand fighting and weapons fighting, puts the science of hte martial arts into the training drills, gives a series of freestye drills so that the individual can REALLY learn how to fight.

And how to survive.
