A drill instructor with Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, corrects a recruit’s execution of a lead hand punch during a Marine Corps Martial Arts Program session, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Nov. 25, 2015. For their first MCMAP event in recruit training, recruits began with a basic warrior stance. This technique is simply how to stand in a versatile position to be ready to strike or defend. Recruits then moved on to angles of movement, where they learned how to move step-by-step while keeping in the basic warrior position. Today, all males recruited from west of the Mississippi are trained at MCRD San Diego. The depot is responsible for training more than 16,000 recruits annually. Bravo Company is scheduled to graduate Feb. 12. - A drill instructor with Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, corrects a recruit’s execution of a lead hand punch during a Marine Corps Martial Arts Program session, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Nov. 25, 2015.
