Yes you have done well my padawan. Now embrace your anger and your journey to the darkside will be complete!!! :new_black
BTW have you succeeded in getting any other brass off their ass to train. I think I was too intimidating for many of them so the wouldn't show up. Now that you and Czar are doing it they shouldn't be as scared.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

A little advice (which I'm sure you won't take)...try to have a clue what you are talking about before you open your mouth. It will make your military life easier.
The point Lawdog was trying to make is that the Marine Corps holds recruits to higher marksmanship standards. That's not a slight against the Army, just a reality. For example, I believe the Army -even for 18x wannabes like yourself - runs their KD qual out to 300 yards. All Marines, even cooks and truck drivers, must qual on the same M16 out to 500 yards.
You will find similar differences in many areas of military life where Marines just set higher expectations than the Army counterparts. The list is substantial. Many soilders would have no problem meeting or exceeding Marine standards, so this is not a Marine > soilder cock measuring contest.

Style: jiu jitsu, judo.
I was in the ARMY from 1980 to1988
We did not have this back then, so I had to go outside of the ARMY to get the real stuff.
Back then there were only four or five tournaments through out the world.
Of course the ARMY said I was crazy and I was 11B series.
I am glad to see actual close combat training, HOORAH RLTW.

As to war fare training, the different arts as ARTEPS, and the movess as Common Tasks. And just list the training and moves but no belts.
I was a Training NCO, cerification in MMAL possible but for now there is no such thing.
You hold a belt for each different arts, that's how it usually is.
A program could be designed I see that it is possible .
Who ever cosigner it better know and live it.
