For more Marine Corps techniques, please visit the main Marine Corps Martial Arts Program section.

Target Areas of the Body (Cont.)

Neck

The entire neck is vulnerable as it contains vital blood vessels, the trachea, and the upper portion of the spine.

Torso

The clavicle, ribs, solar plexus, spine, and internal organs are vulnerable to attack.

Groin

This is a very sensitive area.

Extremities

Significant damage to joints and structure can cause immobilization or loss of the use of that limb.

Weapons of the Body

The weapons of the body are divided into two groups: the arms (to include the hands, forearms, and elbows) and the legs (to include the knees, shins, instep, toe, heel, and the ball of the foot). See figure 2-1.

Basic Warrior Stance

The basic warrior stance provides the foundation for all movements and techniques in a close combat situation using the feet, hands, elbows, and chin.

Feet Apart

Place the feet shoulder-width apart, take a half step forward with the left foot, and turn the hips and shoulders at approximately a 45-degree angle. Distribute your weight evenly by bending the knees slightly and adjusting your feet in order to maintain your balance.

Hands Up

Loosen your fists and bring your hands up to chin level or high enough to protect the head without obstructing your vision.

Elbows In

Tuck your elbows in close to your body protecting the torso.

Chin Down

Tuck your chin down taking advantage of the natural protection provided by the shoulders.
