Ye, I know they do participate in (to the best of my knowledge) Kickboxing, k1 Kickboxing, Judo, Boxing for certain and possibly Karate at the interservice level, I would assume there are a few more within the Corps alone.? I did here somewhere that Thai boxing may also appear which would be excellent

I believe with Karate, they only do Shotokan or Goju ryu Karate.
I was hoping they would implement Kyokushin or any one of it's off shoots like Ashihara
particularly for the marines as Kyokushin is a harder form of karate.
Ashihara however trains more realistically in that it allows for grappling and a form of slipping around your opponent called taisabaki.
Maybe when I'm in, I could sort something.

I heard that the Marines have a quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu set up as well.

It's not really a set martial art, just a combination of stuff that works if you've got kit on. Think they call it RMCC.

Do you have to have a background in most of the sports or can you go as a begginer?

You can't do it in training, I asked when I was at CTC and the time/energy just isn't available.

You don't need much experience to join afterwards however, the association usually jacks up some training weeks during the year so it's not just about competing.

Perhaps the most famous 'after hours' training establishment for self defence/combat training being the 'Union Strasse’ where you could practice your skills in the disarmingly named ‘Naval School of Dancing’.

Many being graduates of Sensei ‘Mad’ Jock Fitzpatrick, 1st Dan Pink Belt in Origami.
