    PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - Recruits of Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, sharpened their Marine Corps martial arts bayonet techniques during pugil stick training June 24, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C.

    Recruits train with pugil sticks, which represent rifles with attached bayonets, to simulate a close-range encounter with an enemy. Bayonet training, along with other hand-to-hand fighting skills, is encompassed in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, which contributes to the mental, character and physical development of Marines. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate Sept. 6, 2013.
