The mission of G.I. JuJitsu is to serve the
Warriors of the Armed Forces of the United States of America by
recognizing their outstanding achievements in the martial arts. History of JuJutsu.
G.I. JuJitsu was established to recognize the combatives skills of the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
The Army and Air Force have adopted the Modern Army Combatives Program and the Marine Corps and Navy have adopted the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). G.I.
JuJitsu understands the commitment and dedication of today’s Warriors and strives to recognize their achievement.

cost associated with the promotion. You will simply receive your promotion certificate by email within one week. If
you have any questions or comments please use our contact us page.
It is often troublesome for
members of the Armed Forces to move up in rank within the martial arts. Many Warriors have decades of experience
in the martial arts but have not been awarded rank because of the
expeditionary nature of the Military. The invariable moving, training, and deployment cycles make it challenging
for members of the Armed Forces to achieve rank in a given discipline.
JuJitsu offers promotions to members of the Armed Forces who have been trained in their service’s combatives program.
For example, a soldier who has completed the Modern Army Combatives Program level one instructor course, now called Basic Combatives, will be promoted to Green Belt under G.I. JuJitsu.
G.I. JuJitsu is chartered under the Midori Yama Budokai. The Midori Yama Budokai is an organization for
the propagation of martial styles and techniques with the purpose of maintaining traditional values and intent of the original martial arts styles.
Anybody certified in Modern Army Combatives can register their experience with G.I. JuJitsu in order to
receive a promotion in JuJitsu. This is a great way for Modern Army Combatives Instructors to obtain civilian credentials
for their military training. America trusts these men and women who serve our country to teach her sons and
daughters hand to hand combat (the ultimate martial art). In an attempt to recognize their training and commitment
to the martial arts, G.I. JuJitsu will promote anyone certified in Modern Army Combatives to an equivalent belt in JuJitsu.
Please understand that this is not a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Promotion. This is a traditional JuJitsu promotion
under the G.I. JuJitsu Club which is chartered through the Midori Yama Budokai. Please refer to the chart
to see what belt you qualify for based on you certification in Modern Army Combatives.
