MCMAP Mission Statement
The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) is a "whole Marine" program, which emphasizes the complete development of a professional warrior, and is a key component of the ethical warrior concept. MCMAP is designed to improve the warfighting capabilities of individual Marines and units, enhance Marines' self-confidence and esprit de corps, and foster the warrior ethos of the Corps. The focus will be on the personal development of each Marine in a team framework, using a standardized, trainable, and sustainable close combat system with three disciplines'; physical, mental and character. MCMAP is not a sport but a distinctively weapons based system, integrating combat equipment, tough realistic training, physical and mental challenges, shared adversity, combat conditioning and tactics typically found in the combat arena.
