Combat sports in the military?

I just found out from an old friend, who recently got out of the marines, that you can do combat sports such as boxing and wrestling in the military. He didn't do any, and we didn't talk about it much, but I was wondering about it. Are those the only combat sports you can do? Do they like train/compete all the time or something? Just wondering how it works.

In addition to the World Class Athlete Program, each Post or Fort has it's own local teams.

The Canadian military got rid of the combat sports, they even took checking out of hockey.

Major Bob has shoulder fired the correct.
