  • Integrating boxing into combatives training: Lessons learned

    The Modern Army Combatives Program (MACP) has greatly increased close-quarters combat training and proficiency in our Army. With inclusion into professional military education and widespread official tournaments, MACP has also improved the Warrior Ethos, confidence and lethality of our force. Although striking is a part of the MACP curriculum, the focus of the program remains on grappling skills due to risk mitigation factors.
    Unrestricted striking, like that in the sport of boxing, is typically reserved for more advanced MACP training and competition. For over a century, the boxing program at the United States Military Academy has successfully trained cadets in boxing through a deliberate risk mitigation process, balancing safety and realism while meeting training objectives. USMA recently conducted gender-integration of the boxing program, requiring all cadets to complete boxing in order to graduate, removing the last existing gender barrier in the U.S. Read More
