    You’re absolutely right, most Marines hardly ever train in hand to hand combat as much as they should. Lady had the upper hand in technique/training clearly. Id like to point out though, this devil dog is a tan belt warrior (white belt). There are some Marines who go that extra mile and actually train up to black belt and black belt instructors. I got out as a green belt and would never pin the hand to hand skills I learned in service, solely, against an actual fight.

      oorah! i trained up to brown belt before I got out as a Corporal in my 4 years. Tan belt warriors are completely different from black belt warriors. While we do lack hand to hand combat, you should test this chick out against a black belt

    In your email you are mostly correct, our service members lack in self-defense training. Some units do a bit more extensive training but not much more extensive, they are putting their butts on the line if/when someone gets injured. Even with training I know service members (all services) who couldn’t have won a physical confrontation with a drunk 85 lbs stripper. Bad example, they can be pretty tough. 😉

    This was great. However, if I was to get into a fight with a Marine (or anyone) my first instinct wouldn’t be to get on the ground; it would be to kick his butt (literally) or go for a quick lock while standing. Good vid though.

    You call it a “ju jitsu fight”??
    A jujitsu fight is two people fighting in accordance to the teaching demands of their jujitsu systems.
    This is jujitsu sparring or a sport jujitsu match. It definitely isn’t a jujitsu fight and it isn’t even a fight.
    And why wouldn’t any girl spar with a marine? (In my opinion the guy wasn’t giving it his all, l could be wrong.)

    Thank you for the education. Yes there is a HUGE misinterpretation when it comes to army combat, I never knew existed. These guys literally kill people, and so your like “wow everything they do has to be effective.” Then you read the books and they are like, a dumbed down, simplified version of the effective martial arts they are taken from, and end up almost looking like some kind of, eye gouging women’s self defense course. Which is effective against a street hooligan, but ya. Training for week in bjj is going to have you losing to a girl who’s trained it a year. Never saw that misinterpretation until you’ve brought it up now. And the movies don’t help lol. Then again, Steven Segal was in many of those movies, and we all know how that turned out. Maybe the rule of thumb is, whatever you take from action films, conclude the opposite. At least the the ones from the 80s-2000s.

    Yup, she got him, obviously had more or better training than he did.
    I’m sad to say it, but you’re right in your comments about the Marine Corps Trav.
    I’m a Viet Nam era Marine (once a Marine, always a Marine), and even in war time the hand to hand stuff we were taught in Boot Camp was CRAP, the old “classical mess” as Bruce Lee used to call it, you know, hand on hip reverse punches etc.
    The only practical empty hand stuff I learned, I had to learn on my own.
    In those days however, one advantage of Marine training that we DID have, was that we fought a lot, against members of another unit or branch of service, or amongst ourselves.
    Why?
    First of all, the training was miserable, long hard hours, sometimes with little sleep, with no days off, in the heat & the sand & the bugs, being locked at attention, cussed out & struck (yes, beaten) by some asshole drill instructor or drill sgt.
    We learned not to move an INCH, unless we were told to do so, or we’d be punched, kicked, or even worse, the whole platoon would be punished for our mistake, by doing bends & thrusts, push ups, or some such thing.
    It was called “discipline”, & was necessary for Marines (combat & otherwise), so during training, most of, if not ALL of us remained in a steady state of “pissed offness” just waiting to get the word so we could go off on some unlucky bastard & vent our rage.
    Kind of like a mistreated pit bull on a chain just waiting to sink their teeth into someone or something.
    In advanced infantry training, we were in companies of about 360 men each, consisting of 3 platoons.
    We were told by our NCOs that if we could kick our squad leaders ass, that we could take his place as squad leader, so you know how that went.
    If someone from another platoon or company walked through our formation while we were starting to form up, we were to beat their ass on the spot.
    Sometimes a drill Sgt. (who carried a weighted billy club up his sleeve) would march us into another company, and there’d be 100-200 guys throwing down in the street.
    Oft times we were looked down on if we didn’t have facial scars from fighting, which caused some of us to fight at a “drop of the hat”, until we got our stripes, always hoping that someone would start something with us, so we could get our stripes & lose the stigma.
    Of course, guys with rough skin from acne or whatever didn’t usually have that problem.
    Nowadays, I’m told, fighting is not allowed in the Marine Corps (except on the battlefield), and Drill Sergeants or Drill Instructors are not even allowed to TOUCH a recruit or CURSE at them, —-WHAT???? And there are women around.
    Anyhow, as you know, fighting, with or without training, conditions the mind & body to take & give out punishment & teaches some skills, even if in an unorthodox way.
    Didn’t mean to be long winded, but thought some of that might be of interest to you.

    Krav is effective. I work security on the side. Ive trained in JKD in the past and Krav for the past few years. I chose it for its fluidity, flexibility and evolution. Similiar to JKD, Krav is an expression of the practitioner and encompasses multiple systems i.e. aikido, but Jitsu, judo, wrestling, boxing, karate and Muay Thai just to name a few. The techniques and principles adapt and evolve based upon the given situation. That’s why it us used by the IDF. However, unlike our military and law enforcement, they’re hand combat training is required and is ongoing. They are expected to advance to Black Belt status. And even then, they continue to train. They are also faced with real life threats from civilians and radicals daily not just on the battlefield. So they regularly apply what they train. The Marine in this video clearly lacks the basics of ground training.

    A great video to show the effectiveness of BJJ. Not quite a fight to the death though in all honesty. When in difficulty the marine would have been raining down blows to try to escape, not just pulling against the choke. I understand the impact using a girl has but that must be the smallest marine God ever created!

    Hey Trav.
    Great video. As an Ex Royal Marine Unarmed Combat Instructor.
    One of your UK Cousins. I can confirm that there is not a huge amount of grappling taught to our forces in the UK either.
    However. Obviously the emphasis in Unarmed military combat is to inflict as much damage and try to kill the person in front of you by the quickest and nastiest means.
    When we did our Instructor course at Lympstone. Staff PTI Trog Royal (R.I.P)
    Told us.
    The first rule of unarmed combat is to try and arm yourself. E.G you are face to face with the enemy and there is an entrenching tool at hand. Pick it up and cave their head in. They are rules.
    If you manage to get someone down and locked up. You stamp and jump on them them with you hard soled combat boots.
    If you get the thumb in their eye. Hook it to the side and gouge it out. (Very nasty and bordering psychotic actions)!!
    If this guy was not trained in the grappling arts but obviously the girls is. He did not stand a chance. There was not punching or kicking either.
    Well done to the young lady. Keep up the great work.

    Interesting to see how training/agility/confidence completely nullifies a huge strength disparity. She was confident in her training,expected to win, and so dominated. Brute strength is largely irrelevant against an intelligent, talented fighter.

    Bit of a dick move by him as he attempts to backwards slam her just before he taps as well. Deserved the loss.

    And true, military people aren’t good at unarmed combat as a result of their routine training. But the opportunity exists to train most martial arts and many of them take it.

    He really didn’t know what how to maximize his advantages.

    Military had to train with the realization that if you are in hand to hand combat, the winner is the one who has an armed friend show up first.

    If that was concrete, when he slammed down after he was in the choke, that could’ve been a game changer. But she bested him. Did he take it easy on her? Wonder how it would’ve gone with full on striking, etc.? Kudos to her and congrats to you.

    Girl’s got some grappling prowess, for sure. Let’s not forget, however, that many military martial arts programs (including MCMAP) are designed to end fights swiftly, brutally, and permanently. Fighting an enemy COMBATANT under life/death circumstances, as opposed to an OPPONENT in a controlled environment, does not come with the luxuries of fair play or “tapping out” when you’ve had enough. In sports and sparring it’s probably a good idea to release your armbar when your opponent taps. When literally fighting for your life (not many people in civilized society know how that feels), it’s perfectly acceptable to rip that fucking arm off and commence flogging them with it.

    Sorry, but she took him to school, pure and simple, and she’d do the same to 99 out of 100 Marines.
    All military means is that you’re dumb enough to fall for nationalism and recruiters lies.
    I’ve trained military and police, and, not shockingly, they all suck in a fight. It’s not that they’re all aussies or anything, it’s that the training is horribly inadequate FOR A FIGHT. Why do you think cops go for their weapons so often? It’s because they’re scared out of their minds that someone will get hands on them.

    Good demonstration of submission grappling and tournement rules.

    This has nothing to do with real combat. If it did, he would have fish hooked her mouth, jabbed his fingers into her eye sockets, palm slapped her ears to rupture her ear drums, punched or elbow struck one of her clavicles to break it, or just grabbed some fingers and bent them back at 180. If he was in her guard he would have slammed a knee continuously into her tail bone/ L spine to break or rupture a disc. If she was on top in Mount half mount he would have pulled her down and sunk his teeth into her neck or a nipples, then ripped his head back and forth like a pitbull to sever flesh.

    I love MMA/Boxing/BJJ.

    I hate the fact that people who train these systems think they are superior to Combatives where a fight ends in debilitating injury or death.

    All 3 ‘sport’ systems above will build a superior foundation of structure, physical strength/stamina , leverage, proprioseption, etc.

    Hell, Travs’ head movement program alone is an amazing investment to develop these good foundations.

    You have to remember that in a fight outside the ring the goal is to end the fight brutally and as horribly as possible. Period.

    I can’t accept this challenge as authentic combat, they make it as real as possible but no dice; meaning the choke hold wasn’t applied as it should; one arm locking into the other, both arms were their but locking in. In my opinion the marine gave in because he’s a gentleman, even though their was a back slam from the marine, but you can see him walking away after he tapped out with a smile as if to say; ah! Let her have this victory, i’m getting paid anyway; maybe not. The woman can fight though.
