Going up against a Marine in friendly competition is one thing, but going up against a Marine Corps martial artist in hand-to-hand combat takes it to another level.

Everybody knows the Marines are tough, and the Marine Corps martial artists are as tough as they come. In the latest episode of “Reporter vs. Marine” The Daily Caller’s Ford Springer travelled out to Raider Hall at Marine Corps Base Quantico where he did his best to hang with some of the baddest Marines in the business. Of course, it turned out exactly how you would expect. (Reporter vs. Marine: The Physical Fitness Test)

“Reporter VS” is a web series where The Daily Caller puts its reporters into the shoes of professionals who face adversity that is unimaginable to a pencil pushing member of the fourth estate. At most news outlets, reporters might be afraid to try, and fail, at a new task. But not at TheDC. We have no problem filming our reporters’ fails and then broadcasting it to the rest of the world. If there is such a thing as blue collar journalism, it would probably look something like The Daily Caller’s “Reporter VS” series.
