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. MACE Mission Statement Train and educate students in two standardized programs of instruction: Martial Arts Instructor and Martial Arts Instructor Trainer Courses; support Tan Belt training for The Basic School; and provide sustainment for the National Capitol Region. Ensure the overall development, sustainment, and instruction of the associated curricula built around established character, mental and physical disciplines. As the functional proponent for the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, responsible for the development, sustainment and implementation of policies, procedures, and standards for MCMAP.
