Basic Training With MACP Founder Matt Larsen

In their September and October hard copy issues, Black Belt magazine will publish articles on Matt Larsen (US Army, Ret), who is considered the father of the Modern Army Combatives Program (MACP). While on active duty Larsen was the primary author of Field Manual 3-25.150 (Combatives) which spells out the program in great detail. Taking a page from Mixed Martial Arts, MACP works hand in hand with the physical fitness regime to make movements second nature. Additionally, MACP teaches Soldiers weapons retention skills and limited knife fighting.

Be sure to drop by Black Belt’s website and check out the videos featuring Matt Larsen.
