A Combatives Black Belt is one of the highest honors in Martial arts. It means that the person honored is at the master class level across all of the skills of the modern warrior. It isn't an award for hobbyists who train only in the aspects of fighting that they enjoy. It is for the most serious warriors in the world, those who have dedicated themselves to being what their brothers need them to be when they are in harm's way.
Few people who start training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ever make it to black belt. Still, becoming a blue or purple belt is quite an accomplishment. The average blue belt can beat almost anyone they meet in a fight and the average purple belt would most likely be the best fighter in any infantry brigade in the world.
The same thing can be said about people who take up action shooting as a hobby. Very few will ever be a master class shooter. Still, the average B or C class USPSA shooter or IDPA Sharpshooter is better with weapons and much more likely to win in a gunfight than the vast majority of people.
The people on this list are the ones that any warrior would want with them when going into a fight. They can all fight at the brown or black belt level in BJJ/MMA. They can shoot, know trauma medicine, and are fit and ready. And we are very proud to call each other our brothers.
