Pugil Sticks: Facing Opponents for the First Time After engaging targets on the Bayonet Assault Course, recruits will undergo more close combat training, this time against an actual opponent. Using Pugil Sticks, a padded pole used to simulate rifle combat, they must fight on wooden bridges and in simulated trenches. For many recruits, pugil stick training is the most intense physical combat they have ever experienced. They have to learn to act despite fear in order to outmaneuver and overpower an opponent.
U.S. Marine Corps drill instructors with Instructional Training Company, Support Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment supervise and train recruits with A Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, Recruit Training Regiment, on pugil stick fighting aboard Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, Calif., March 29, 2016. Recruits are taught pugil sticks to improve their ability to fight effectively in close quarters, with techniques from the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. (U.S. Marine Corps motion imagery by Sgt.
