Basic Combatives (Level 1) certified trainers are capable of teaching basic combatives basic core techniques. They can implement basic comtatives training at the Squad level with oversight from Tactical Combatives (Level 2) trainers.

Tactical Combatives (Level 2) certified trainers are given a more detailed understanding of basic core techniques, and are given a broadened knowledge of some more advanced fighting techniques. They can implement basic combatives training at the Platoon level with oversight from Basic Combatives Instructors (Level 3).

Basic Combatives Instructors (Level 3) are authorized to teach the Basic Combatives Trainer course as well as run Battalion sized Combatives programs with oversight from Tactical Combatives Instructors (Level 4).


Modern Army Combatives Course MTTs are currently available for Levels I & II certification. Level I is five days in duration and is the base level for every Soldier in the ARNG. Level two is ten days in duration and builds on the skills introduced in the Level I course. Both Level I and II have incorporated quick strikes and other moves previously taught in Level III and IV. These changes allow Soldiers to subdue an opponent without the need to take them to the ground.
