Hi, I'm Drill Sergeant Seria Bullock, I'm a drill sergeant here at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Today I'll be answering a question from a civilian, Jason from California, Moore Park. His question is; "In basic training do you learn hand-to-hand combat such as martial arts?"

Yes, we actually do a thing called 'Combatives.' It's like a week long course, but we cover it within two-days. So yes, we do hand-to-hand combat in basic training.
