Lt, realize that there are alot of juvies in this forum..few with any experience in anything let alone the military.
Each step you take in the military you will learn some sort of H2H. Speaking for the Army that is. If you go Ranger you will learn more. SF even more..Det D...still more. All are taught in blocks of instructions...no belts given. ( the marines award belts and there system looks good so far). So you are not going to learn MA per say. As most operations are weapons ( gun ) dependent that will be the focus of your training...you being an radio operator you'll learn all about comunications.

My advice..if you want to get on the teams..learn a language current to todays needs..like farsi...learn your craft well..and as someone suggested keep getting stronger...working out. Go to school if you get a chance...most operators have a college education. Try out for the teams if it is in your soul...never quit!!!
As far as MA...on the outside I would learn BJJ and or SCARS. Good luck...now drop and give me 50 pushups you scum!!! Ed

Mongoose,,if you're joining the military simply to learn how to fight and to stand up to bullies,,Please stay home. Study martial arts, pump iron, take steroids if you feel so inclined but don't go into the Army. You'll be miserable and a poor fit. On the other hand, if you want to grow up a bit, serve your country, learn some work and life skills, earn tution money and you're okay with the idea of combat duty, by all means sign up. If you really want that ranger option hold out for it as a contact gaurentee BEFORE you sign swear and ship.(otherwise there's a good chance you'll never see it). Army h2h is kinda sorta BJJ based at the moment. It'll change soon enough so dont be too focused on exact details. As for prep? I lost conditioning in basic/AIT. Got some of it back in jump school, and hit a plateau in the 82nd where we did a LOT of running and calesthenics but not much else. The exceptional performers trained on their own time (weights and MA's). Having a good areobic base will get you further than just about anything else. Try for the fastest two mile time you can manage (thats th PT test distance) and a 12 mile march in under 3 hrs with 50-55 lbs combined gear (thats the other standard). Good luck and keep us informed. K-
