1. Undisputedly, Marine Corps Basic Training is harder physically and mentally than any other branches basic training. Not only is it worse physically, recruits are forced to remember grueling amounts of information. Over 70 days out of 90 are used for training.

8. The motto of the Marine Corps Martial Arts program is "One Mind. Any Weapon." Recruits must learn how to combine unarmed techniques from various martial arts with armed techniques designed for hand-to-hand combat. More than just self-defense training, MCMAP fuses together mental and character building with combat disciplines.

9. Marines must be ready to move towards the sounds of chaos without hesitation. The success of their mission demands complete focus and confidence. During week nine, Drill Instructors focus on building confidence in recruits by motivating them to overcome the 11 unique challenges of the Confidence Course.

10. The Crucible is the final phase of Marine Corps Recruit Training that tests every skill learned and every value instilled. Recruits will be challenged for 54 continuous hours with little food and sleep. To complete this final test, recruits must have the heart, the body and the mind, the desire and the ability.
