The National Guard is holding its first annual national Modern Army Combatives Program (read: glorified Brazilian jiu-jitsu) next month at Ft Benning. Due to manning shortages in my office--and the fact that I'm deeply out of practice--I will be unable to attend this year.
I am, however, enrolling in a local jiu-jitsu gym this weekend (hey, it just opened!) and have every intention of participating in next year's event. Hopefully, I'll get some MACP certifications (at least level 2) by then.
