A Look At USSOCOM’s Human Performance Program from a CCT Perspective

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

In this USAF video by Andrew Arthur Breese for AIRMAN magazine, we get an inside look at USSOCOM Human Performance Program from the perspective of Combat Controller SMSgt Kenneth Huhman. I remember when he was a SrA and he was a great young man, very fit and full of potential. Well, these ensuing 15 years or so have taken their toll on him. Fortunately, the days of “take some Motrin and suck it up” are going away and sports physiology and medicine are rightfully being applied to our combat athletes. The Human Performance program is helping Special Operators like SMSgt Huhman overcome injuries and reach their full potential. Hopefully, one ay soon, programs like this will be available for military personnel.

John “Shrek” McPhee Introduces Gunfighter University

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014


John McPhee aka Shrek aka Sheriff of Baghdad is a top-tier firearms trainer. Now, he’s launched an entirely new way of providing feedback to shooters. Gunfighter University utilizes analysis of video of the shooter combined with online feedback. McPhee has been using the Coach’s Eye software for several years now and has even been recognized by Coach’s Eye for his innovative methods.

But, Gunfighter U takes the whole thing to a different level. McPhee offers an affordable option for those who can’t make it to a formal class by offering individualized coaching based on the videos you provide. He’ll take a look at the mechanics of your shot (stance, presentation and grip) and recommend changes. Additionally, he continues to offer class enrollment for those so inclined.


His methodology is straight forward. It’s a three-strep process that can be accomplished virtually anywhere you can shoot your firearm and record yourself.
