    Thanks for the info :cool:.

    So how long does it usually take for someone to progress from a tan belt straight out of boot camp to a black belt?

    I guess if you could find an instructor to have you put in the hours and training time you could do it over the course of a maybe a year or two.
    That's being extremely dedicated though!
    Bottom line being you would have to find the time, and an instructor.
    The shitty thing is the hours are not logged anywhere.

    I started on my grey twice already....this being the 3rd but I keep getting moved so I lose the credit for those sessions. If you're going to do it...go all the way and get it done.

    Thanks again for the info :cool:.

    What you posted above says MCMAP includes instruction in "edged weapons," are they talking about knife fighting with Kabar's? :x:

    And the actual tan, grey, etc. belt that you earn, do you actually wear that belt on your regular uniform on a daily basis or is it just for ceremonial type purposes?
