For most of us, the “martial” in martial arts is anything but an indication that what we’re learning is war-like.

After all, we’re civilians being taught how to defend ourselves and/or compete in tournaments rather than train for CQC or to improve our combat fitness.

That’s not the case for one MMA fighter — who also happens to be a CQC expert.

And in this FREE download — From MMA to CQC: Tim Kennedy on Army Combatives, MACP, SOCP, Combat Fitness and the Future of Close-Quarters Combat — the MMA-fighter-turned-Texas-National-Guard-staff-sergeant explains:

  • how 9/11 changed his mindset about being “just a fighter” vs. making a difference as a practitioner and teacher of combat fitness and modern CQC methods
  • his Army enlistment, which led to deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan
  • his involvement with Special Forces and being put on a HALO sniper team
  • what role Modern Army Combatives (MACP) and the Special Operations Combatives Program (SOCP) play in the close-quarters combat training of Special Forces personnel

What is SOCP, and How Did It Develop?

“Greg Thompson and Matt Larsen saw a deficiency at the higher level of [CQC (close-quarters combat)]: You can’t shoot a double-leg takedown and get on top of a guy when you’re in a small room because his buddy will come up behind you and smash you in the head. You can’t close the space and knee a guy you’ve pinned in the corner because his buddies will swarm you,” Tim Kennedy explains in this FREE download, From MMA to CQC: Tim Kennedy on Army Combatives, MACP, SOCP, Combat Fitness and the Future of Close-Quarters Combat.

“You have to have a heads-up, prepared-for-anything martial art that’s fast, dynamic and dangerous,” Kennedy says regarding the need for combat fitness among troops during CQC. “You have to be able to do damage and then get back to the important stuff. Recognizing that, Greg Thompson developed SOCP. Now every Special Forces member trains with it.”

How Are CQC, MMA and Army Combatives Connected?

According to Staff Sgt. Kennedy of the Texas National Guard in this FREE download, the deployed personnel who have real-world CQC experience are eager to teach what they’ve learned about combat fitness and continue learning new self-defense moves for their own arsenals. He believes this influx of true combat data “will revolutionize martial arts” from the theoretical and practical perspectives.

How Does SOCP Compare to CQC Methods Developed During World War II?

“There’s something to be said for the traditions of Army combatives,” Tim Kennedy says in From MMA to CQC: Tim Kennedy on Army Combatives, MACP, SOCP, Combat Fitness and the Future of Close-Quarters Combat. “But now we’re fighting a different type of war against a different type of enemy. If our combatives program doesn’t change, we’ll die.”
