MCMAP Vs Krav Maga


MCMAP, or Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, is a fairly new martial art that combines new and existing hand-to-hand and close quarters combat. Some techniques use riffles, bayonets, edged weapons and weapons of opportunity. MCMAP uses influences from  boxing, jujitsu, judo, sambo, karate, aikido, escrima, arnis, hapkido, taekwondo, kung fu, kick boxing, and just about every other martial art on the planet. What is awesome about MCMAP is it gives users a variety of tools at their disposal to pick the best one for the situation, much like Krav Maga.

MCMAP teaches character development, responsible use of force  and leadership as well as the actual fighting portion. In comparison, Krav Maga only teaches the students to avoid conflict and to target vulnerable areas when conflict is unavoidable.

Krav Maga is known as the go to martial art for the Israeli Defense Forces. Like MCMAP, it combines various forms of martial arts creating a devastating, effective form of fighting. Krav focuses on avoiding conflict whenever possible and neutralizing a threat with brutal counter attacks.

When you compare the two they’re really similar, but which would win in a match up?
