Are you training your neurology to be better on the gun? Matt Powell of Pramek and Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics combine for the first firearms focused fitness video. It’s all about getting faster, stronger, and more accurate using specialized exercises designed around firearms.
We are happy to announce the Pramek course list has been revised and courses have been added for the remainder of 2014 and into 2015. These seminars are at low prices for the high quality education that takes place. We have added new additional advanced ‘full weekend’ courses that many schools will find extremely interesting. […]
In this video, Matt Powell, while teaching at Pramek Cleveland, demonstrates different types of ground movements with weapons. This is not meant to be direct firearms instruction, but how to utilize weapons training to reinforce proper movement mechanics. In the online and social media world, ‘rolling’ with pistols has become a fad. Matt specifically discusses […]
We’ve had some questions about the ground fighting video on Youtube. Leverage on the ground is vital to submission and escapes, but the word ‘leverage’ is composed of ‘lever’ and in this seminar we taught various classes of levers in both stand up and ground fighting. In a Pramek guard to lever submission, we rely […]
We would like to thank Wolf Fitness Systems for being a gracious host, once again, to Matt Powell to teach the first ever master class. It was a hit and the group had a great time – we covered both stand up and ground. We will be adding some video soon, and more photos, but […]
As we gear up to begin releasing new videos for 2014 and close down filming for 2013 (we released a lot of material this year), we wanted to share one more free instructional on Youtube on leg attacks and the screw. One common question at seminars that we get is, ‘Yea, but does that takedown […]

Congratulations to the first ever Level 1 Pramek instructors. These new instructors are a great representation of what we do, and although they might not always get it perfect, they get it. They get Pramek. Combatives, movement, science, being a teacher and not a demonstrator, innovation, honesty. After training with myself, leading strong training groups, […]

In this video from the ‘Combative Striking’ clinic at Wolf Fitness Systems, Matt Powell demonstrates using a three point strike to break through an opponents upper frame hand position. Try it with a training partner, you’re sure to find positive results. As Matt explains, this is a committal strike – best used with a short […]
Which are you? An instructor or demonstrator? Or are you a teacher? In this video, Matt Powell discusses the difference between an instructor and a demonstrator. The difference between the two is the difference between a student who learns, and a student who excels to a new level. This question is exactly why we created […]
Combative striking isn’t about boxing…it’s about striking for effect. It’s about doing the most damage to the aggressor while taking as little damage as possible. Here’s video from a recent Combative Striking and CLM seminar in Cleveland, OH to explain!
Friends We really owe a lot of thanks to Wolf Fitness Systems for an excellent seminar…and I’ll be returning quite soon. But, just a little bit ago ESIK Productions uploaded a video of the seminar I didn’t even know what made…! It’s video of a few parts of our seminar set to some great music […]
Do you take pride in your work? I’m fortunate to have patient students. Your students are your mirror – they show every scowl, every scar, every bruise, every problem. Or they show every laugh line, lesson learned, every ‘light bulb’ moment. Do you have a broken mirror? Do you have a mirror you don’t like […]
You Never Know How Many Lives You Will Save… by: Aaron Cowan Founder, Sage Dynamics Pramek FFA Instructor When I attended my first instructor level course; the class that would allow me to begin training law enforcement officers, I was given a piece of advice I have carried with me ever since. “You will never […]
Friends Over the weekend we hosted our first Weapons Mastery Series class in Atlanta…a success, our FFA instructor Aaron Cowan taught an amazing 8 hours of Handgun Fundamentals. 400 rounds and blisters later, we left exhausted and challenged. Video’s coming soon 🙂 I have often spoke of why we have divisions within Pramek for instruction, and it […]
