Air Force Combatives Program

U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Brian Cantu, an Air Force senior combatives instructor, with the 621st Contingency Response Squadron, Joint Base Mcguire-Dix-Lakehurst, oversees Airmen practice grappling techniques, March 16, 2022 at Muñiz Air National Guard Base, Puerto Rico. The 22 newly graduated Air Force Combatives instructors, all from different sections of the 156th Wing can pass down the knowledge they’ve acquired to other Airmen and assist in developing an always ready fighting force. “For us as instructors, just being able to see the Airmen grow in the aspect of having a mentality of ‘You know what? Size doesn't matter, as long as I use proper technique’ we’re good to go,” said Cantu. (U.S. Air National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Rafael D. Rosa)
