Can anyone provide any info on this self defense curriculum...I think it is taught in USMC Basic. I know Paladin sells books/videos on it, but I was hoping to get some first hand accounts...what it entails and so forth. Thanks

The course taught during boot was a joke, I know, I went through it.

ATeaM - That's Pugil sticks you are talking about, which are to simulate bayonet combat.

As to line training, it's all very basic common sense stuff, and if you've had any sort of self-defense training, you probably know most of it.
