[IC] M.I.M.A.P. (Work in Progress)

Recommended Posts

Mobile Infantry Martial

Arts Program (M.I.M.A.P.)


Chapter 1. Overview


The M.I.M.A.P. consists of three disciplines: mental character, and physical. Each discipline is divided and presented systematically to troopers at each stripe level. Those disciplines taught at lower stripe levels are then reviewed and reinforced during following training and at the next belt level. Many skills specific to one discipline reinforce the strengths of other disciplines. Martial culture studies strengthen the mental character of troopers through the historical study of war, at the same time reinforcing the importance of character to a warrior and a martial society. What makes this a complete program is the synergy of all three disciplines, which are inextricably linked to each other, and to the advancement process within the stripe ranking system. Commissioned officers are required to certify that the trooper meets annual training requirements and the prerequisites of each specific belt level and possesses the maturity, judgment, and moral character required for advancement. This ensures that as a trooper develops increased levels of lethality with additional physical skills, he also develops a commensurate level of maturity and self-discipline.

  • The study of the art of war.
  • War-fighting

    • The study of mobile infantry history, customs, courtesies, and traditions.

Stripe Ranking System

The M.I.M.A.P. consists of a stripe ranking system with five basic levels; tan, gray, green, brown, and black. The colored stripe levels are identified as user levels and are designed to progressively develop the physical skills and lethality of the individual trooper so that he becomes a stronger link in the mobile infantry chain. The user's responsibilities include participating in all technique classes, tie-ins, warrior studies, and sustaining techniques. Troopers must also participate in the appropriate belt-level drills and free sparring. Troopers are responsible at all times for their individual actions and conduct.
