    Just curious. I do some Brazilian jiu jitsu, and I was wondering if that'd get me some sort of credit. I know you get a badge or something for marksmanship, right? Is there anything else that you'll get credit for?

    Thanks.

    I doubt the US armed forces use brazilian jiu-jitsu as their CQC technique.

    Well then youd be wrong...they use alot of techniques BJJ claim as 'their own' as well as just about every other grappling style out there to learn.

    at the advanced level or the basic shit every infantryman learns?
     
  6. Army combatives sucks compared to a good BJJ instructor. But they use a lot of the same techniques.

    you'll get a lot of up downs and front-back-gos if you decide to start doing random shit during MCMAP/combatives instruction
