    Staff Sgt. Randy Camacho, a martial arts instructor trainer with 9th Communication Battalion, presents a graduation certificate to a Marine who recently completed the martial arts instructor course at Camp Pendleton, Calif., June 12. The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program is broken down into a series of levels, represented by belts. The first belt a Marine earns is the tan belt, followed by the gray, green, brown and black belts. To train new Marines, the instructors must go through the martial arts instructor course. The physical portion of the training involves intense conditioning, such as cohesion drills, sparring and warrior case studies. The case studies involve exercises or training scenarios, which simulate what Navy Cross or Medal of Honor recipients faced during their combat experiences.
