"Skills exercised by Combat Brain Training are valuable to all Warfighters and are increasingly critical for coping with complexity on today's battlefields. The Marine Corps boasts a long legacy of encouraging mental agilities of our Marines. ... After going through your training I am convinced that MPT can increase our fitness for Warfighting through improved cognition.”
- Battalion Intel Officer, Marine Corps Staff Instructor
“I had been out of the cockpit for over a year and I felt I was losing my mental agility. After just a few hours of MPT I feel I have it back! "
– F-18 pilot, Forward Air Controller
“Decision making is one of the most important skills in Stalking since they have to constantly reassess and refocus in order to accomplish the objective. The youngest Marine in the class practiced MPT the most and scored highest scores in the school in Stalking, Marksmanship and Overall”
- Scout Sniper School Officer in Charge (OIC)
“Marines had improvements in focus, in their ability to relax and clear their mind before shooting, could go through their shot process more easily since the training was allowing them to perform the steps subconsciously. This was from performing MPT exercises for just a couple days.”
- Marine Corps Shooting Team Office in Charge (OIC)
“We usually allow 24 hours to complete our 4 peak orienteering exercise, yet we were back by sunset – never happened before"
- Special Ops Commanding Officer
40%-50% of the class fails LandNav the first time and then some have to retest
several times. “This time they aced the test! 44 out of 48 passed on the first
try, the remaining four on second try. Best performance by far we have ever had
at the school.”
"Normal range is low 80’s, the two
MPT classes were 93 and 94!
Highest overall average scores in the history of the School."
- Infantry Squad Leader Class Chief Instructor
"I had the opportunity to observe John training Marines for several days. Hearing the direct feedback from the Marines and watching their improvement in performance was outstanding. The importance of this cannot be underestimated."
- Government Contractor
“I had not picked up a rifle for
several years before my qual this year. I worked with John for two weeks and
shot expert. This was my first time with an M-4 and RCO. Shooting is the most mentally draining activity I have performed since
flying a helicopter at night with instruments. MPT helped with the shooting, I
wish I’d had it when I was flying.”
- Marine Captain, former pilot
"I have my men practice at the end
of every day. It wakes us up and I know it will help us stay focused in
Afghanistan..This will help us in our mission to “Train, Mentor, and Advise”
- Marine Col., Embedded Transition Team Commanding Officer“
“MPT will make us stronger as individuals
and also make us a safer group as a whole with a heightened sense of
situational awareness and processing efficiency.”“I can read faster and really tackle
my assignments in class by focusing more effectively on the tasks at hand. It
is improving hand eye coordination in the cockpit and memorizing where key
instruments/switches are. I want to contact the naval Academy
and get MPT started there. These exercises will be very helpful to young men
and women at service academies.”
