This week we are at Fort Benning, the center of excellence for Army Combatives. It’s an honor and privaledge to be invited here since this is home to the Modern Army Combatives Program.
Yesterday we did our Leadership Brief for 24-7. Modern army combative (MAC) founder Matt Larsen was on hand to show his support for our research and system. Matt has been a proponent of our program foe many years and has injected small elements into some of his courses.
Last year I flew down to help support the war on terror and met LTC Axelberg and trained a bunch of his soldiers. We stayed in contact throughout the year and he was finally able to coordinate an extended training block.
Tomorrow we will have over 30 drill instructors in our course that will focus on specific scenarios to support the soldier’s mission when they deploy.
Our training supports MACP and other combative programs by focusing on Realistic, rigorous and relevant scenarios!
SPEAR coaches Tony Torres and Cliff Byerly ran them through their paces today with additional scenarios and force on force to be covered over next 2 days. More to follow.
Pictured above, some of the soldiers get introduced to the fundamentals.
