MMA Hall of Fame: Chase Hughes '99

MMA Hall of Fame: Chase Hughes '99

Chase Hughes came to Missouri Military Academy in 1994 as a high school freshman from Houston, Texas. He attended MMA for four years, graduating with the Class of 1999. During his time at the Academy, he was a member of Echo Company, a dedicated Fusileer and a competitor in football, golf and wrestling. Over the course of a 20-year Navy career, Chase became a leading military and intelligence behavior expert, creating the Behavior Pilot System and a brand for himself. He has set the standard and produced multiple curriculums used by law enforcement and government agencies worldwide. For these accomplishments and all of his accolades, Chase is inducted into the 2023 MMA Alumni Hall of Fame for Business, Entrepreneurship and Leadership.

Holding degrees and certificates from the U.S. Naval War College, Thomas Edison State University and the American Military University, Chase is also a Certified Master of Clinical Hypnotherapy from the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

Throughout his military and educational advancement, Chase became aware of serious issues plaguing current intelligence operations, from interrogation to asset recruiting. Convinced the U.S. was losing critical intelligence opportunities, he believed lives were being lost as a result. His research led him to spend years deciphering the human matrix and developing a map for influence and behavior profiling called the Behavioral Table of Elements.

Chase has created tools such as the FATE Model, utilizing the four elements of evolutionary psychology; the world’s first rapid behavior profiling system for intelligence operations known as the “Six Minute X-ray” or 6MX; a police de-escalation modal called PEACE 4A; and the violence prediction course TFCA cycle. A No. 1 best-selling author, he has published five books about human behavior and profiling. In 2020, Chase was named a Top 40-under-40 CEO in America and one of the Top 20 CEOs in America by CEO Weekly. It is our honor to recognize his accomplishments with his induction into the MMA Hall of Fame.
