In weeks 3-6 recruits experience a lot of physical learning. It's when the real work starts. Week 3 recruits get familiar with a bayonet. A bayonet is a knife that attaches to a rifle. Strength, leadership, communication, and an extreme amount of effort is what it takes to be a United States Marine. Week 4 recruits battle each other with pugil sticks. Pugil sticks are big padded sticks that recruits use to build up physical strength and encourage competition. At week 5 recruits learn the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program(MCMAP). At week 6 they learn how to face their fears and they do rappelling. In the end, the recruits EARN the title United States Marine when they graduate basic training at either MCRD San Diego or Parris Island, NC. In weeks 1-3 recruits get an idea of what marine life really is and how to discipline themselves in becoming a United States Marine. They learn life in the barracks with a D.I. (Drill Instructor) yelling at them every 5 seconds. There are two important skills needed to become a superior Marine. Tremendous physical strength and brilliant leadership.
