Agility and Strength

The teachers received instructions on holding a simulated rifle with fixed bayonet and different ways to neutralize an enemy during close contact. The above picture shows a Marine Drill Instructor leading the teachers through several of those type exercises.

The below photos show Marines demonstrating the proper method of negotiating physical obstacles. This course is used to test recruits' agility and strength to navigate obstacles similar to ones that might be encountered on a beach invasion or in battlefield fighting.

Several younger teachers attempted some obstacles after impromptu challenges by colleagues. Although clumsy and with struggle, they mustered adrenaline to conquer their obstacles to a cheering crowd.

Return here on March 25 for an update. Have a good week!
