U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Matthew Maloney is a Martial Arts Instructor (MAI) assigned to the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. As an MAI, he is responsible for training, mentoring, and leading students through a challenging curriculum that includes physical and mental fitness, moral development, and hand-to-hand combat. Maloney, from St. Louis, Missouri, was the honor graduate of his Martial Arts Instructor Course. He is driven by the pursuit of perfection. "I take pride in being a Marine others look up to as they take part in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program," said Maloney. "The Marine Corps is a warfighting organization and MCMAP is a great way for Marines to learn about what it means to be an honorable and courageous warrior." he said. 24th MEU Marines are always preparing for the next deployment, and MAI’s like Maloney are crucial to maintaining tough, realistic training standards that will ensure Marines are capable of addressing and overcoming challenges while deployed.
