Punch that guy as much as you can.
If that’s an order you’d love to carry out, the Army has a place for you: The All-Army Boxing Team.
The Army’s boxing program gives Soldiers, the chance to fight their way through its rankings, and if they win enough, they may even find themselves representing the U.S. in the Olympics.
“I Tell these Soldiers, ‘Write your own story’,” said Staff Sgt. Charles Leverette. “Somebody gave me an opportunity, and now I stand before you as All-Army Boxing Head Coach.”
Army boxing consists of a series of programs with hard-won victories as the admission price to each successive level.
An Effective and Efficient Method of Self-Defense for the Professional Warrior
Damian Ross gets it. If there was ever an instructor who knows what works and what does not work, he is the man. He is the president of the Self Defense Company ™ and creator of the Guardian Defensive Tactics Police Combatives ™ system as well as the Self Defense Company’s Training System Combatives ™ program.
I have been training since 1974, in a myriad of martial arts and defensive tactics systems. I have been a Police Defensive Tactics instructor since 1995. I have taught martial arts since 1989. I can tell when a system has what it takes to keep you alive and when it is strictly for sport, for show, or simply for profit. The Self Defense Company’s Guardian Defensive tactics Police Combatives ™ program is the real deal!
Remington Arms has a long history of manufacturing shotguns for law enforcement and military applications but until recently the most popular model, the Remington 870 12 gauge pump-action shotgun, was a converted hunting shotgun with a shorter barrel and a few tactical upgrades. Now, please do not misunderstand me, the 870 is a fine shotgun that is highly reliable and will last a lifetime, even in unforgiving environments. I have owned a Remington 870 shotgun, which I have used for police patrol and tactical duties, for over 25 years. I have also been a Remington armorer since 1995; therefore, I am very familiar with, and fond of, Remington shotguns, especially the 870.

Master Sgt. William Moore, 898th Munitions Squadron first sergeant, won his second professional mixed martial arts fight Jan. 14 at the “King of the Cage” fight at the Buffalo Thunder Resort in Santa Fe.
Moore’s first professional fight was at a Wounded Warrior benefit as part of a military professional card in April 2011. He also won that fight, and has won both in the first round.
A VIOLENT social uproar can happen any minute due to natural disaster, power outage, or demonstration-gone-bad.
Sure, you may be one of those “preppers” who are fully stocked with ammo, survival seed packs, 27 cases of Spam, and a case of Budweiser.
But there’s one area that unfortunately most people are completely unprepared for…and you need to correct it now!
Here’s the question you must answer…
Are You PHYSICALLY Prepared
For A Crisis?

Anyone familiar with the Portuguese language and Brazilian jiu-jitsu would know why coach Vincent Carlucci chose the name for his team.
He calls it “Team-Choco,” and it couldn’t be any more appropriate.
In Portuguese, “choco” means 10-armed giant squid, and after a few minutes of watching Brazilian jiu-jitsu, it is obvious why team members would want to emulate the fast, powerful and slippery cephalopods.

In what Air Force officials called a “grand slam” for the Fitness Center on the Medical Training and Education Center Campus, the Air Force Box-Off tournament Jan. 20 and 21 was a big success.
“The Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines packed the house,” said Ken Hack, the center’s director.
“All branches of the services were at the event and also included family members, active duty service members and Department of Defense civilian employees.”
Thinking of taking on a new hobby this new year? How about studying mixed martial arts under the tutelage of Master Jorge Ordonio? It’s more than just a work out, it’s a completely unique experience.

Mission success has been the norm at Travis over the past several years. With excellent ratings in exercises and award-winning teams in nearly every squadron, Travis is known for providing top-notch global mobility. However, a piece of being successful is preparing for when things do not go right.
Several Travis aircrew members received survival training Tuesday at an undisclosed location.
The survival training is one piece of the Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape program, and is focused on preparing survival students for if and when an isolating event occurs, said one survival instructor.
