Marines overcome challenges, improve close combat techniques on ship

Sergeant Johnathon R. Robinson (right), a Marine Corps Martial Arts black belt instructor with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, and a native of Larned, Kan., conducts a “tie-in,” a values-based guided discussion, during Marine Corps Martial Arts 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)
