        Woohoo, done, done, & done. It's real hard at first, then tapers down. The first two days were all I could take. I was at my limit. Start of the third day, I told myself, gotta to make it to lunch. Still at my limit. Just come back from lunch. Just make it to the end of the day. Day four was the Achieve the Clinch drill, which was an easy day. Tough mentally, but easy physically. Day five was just the final test. Simple & easy. I was able to get some good video, but i'm not allowed to post it online. Level 2 coming up in January.

            This looks very exciting. There are a lot of Level 2 courses taught by NG RTIs, but I think the only Level 3 course out there is the one taught at Fort Benning.

              Sir, Yes you are correct. Levels 1 & 2 are taught locally. Levels 3 & 4 are taught at Ft Benning.

              SGT Juggernaut, Yes we had two students drop with rib problems. We started with eleven students; certified five.

                Wow thats quite the wash out rate! And thats only level 1. I **** at grappling, or any hand to hand for that matter. I suppose I should push to go through at least level 1, it could save my life some day.

                  Grappling is the best workout, and really comes in handy. The knowledge gap in between someone who knows nothing and someone who knows just a little bit is amazing. I've been able to make my smartass friends look silly at times.

                  I'd love to get into the combatives program, but I practice MA on the civilian side anyway.

                    Would you say that the programs at an RTI that are run many times throughout a year are a higher caliber than those that run maybe only once a year at an RTI? Of course we can always say...it's a certified course...blah..blah.

                    But it's like trying to compare "most" OCS programs through the RTI with something like Accelerated OCS.

                      It is quite the workout. On sunday we did 4 hours of combatives training and ended the session with a round robin. I grappled with 5 different people for 3 minutes each, one right after the other. I was spent, and I'm a cardio maniac running marathons, free running, rock climbing, swimming with full ACU's and boots, and ruck marches. 15 minutes of grappling burnt me out and left me pretty sore the next day. Its a completely different way of exercising, and one thing it taught me was that I can't expect to out muscle or out last my opponent, form and technique will make all the difference in the world.

                        Do you get to do level 2 and 3 in the Guard?
                        And what about lines?

                          I have to say, you are def in tune with the search bar, you have been bringing it back on the threads lol.

                          But here are your answers:
                          -Yes, you can get level 2 and 3. You have to pass the prior classes and test into level 3.
                          -What do you mean by lines?

                            It's all about technique and leverage. Our DS was talking about his days going through and teaching combatives at Ft. Benning. The words straight from his mouth were: "You learn just enough in level one to get your a s s kicked, which is what will happen if you go out in the street and think you can win a fight in a bar with what you learned. Level two and three you learn how to take an a s s whooping. Level 4 is when you really learn something." Cracked me up.

                            Then he starts talking about how he got his teeth knocked out, then the younger DS's said: "They wear head gear now." He throws his hands up and says "What? Aaaaahhhh shiiiiiii.." We were all cracking up.

                              A couple of months ago, I went against a female and she was good.

                              The new movie Warrior looks like its going to be good.
