Marines overcome challenges, improve close combat techniques on ship

Marines and Sailors with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit conduct leg sweeps under the supervision of Sgt. Johnathon R. Robinson (right), a Marine Corps Martial Arts Program black belt instructor with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st MEU, and a native of Larned, Kan., during training in the hanger bay here, Sept. 12. Those participating in the MCMAP training have to work around the challenges that being deployed on an amphibious warship presents, including time limitations, confined space, dim lighting and unstable fighting grounds. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward deployed MEU. (Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Codey Underwood)
