June 1, 2022 – Marines assigned to Task Force 51/5th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (TF 51/5) completed the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) black belt culminating event aboard Naval Support Activity, Bahrain.

The culminating event included various exercise stations and sparring matches where Marines used techniques learned throughout their MCMAP training. TF 51/5 responds to crises and contingencies; coordinates, plans, and executes operations; conducts theater security cooperation; and advances emerging Naval concepts at sea, from the sea, and ashore in order to support U.S. Central Command, 5th Fleet, and Marine Corps Forces Central Command theater objectives.

The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program consists of a belt ranking system that begins at Tan Belt and progresses up to 6th Degree Black Belt. Each belt level consists of specific techniques of the four components of the physical discipline ... Rifle & Bayonet, Edged Weapons, Weapons of Opportunity, and Unarmed Combat. Techniques begin with fundamentals and become more difficult as each level is reached. In addition each belt level has a corresponding number of Mental and Character discipline requirements that help develop the Warrior Ethos in conjunction with the increased levels of lethality ... with the ultimate goal to become a Master-at- Arms, the epitome of the professional warrior.
