Dr. John Landry and I talk about combat knives, and the strengths and weaknesses of choosing a fixed versus a folding blade. Knives are a popular topic these days, which is why we chose to make this video. I’ve always been a folder guy, with my Spyderco Harpy at the ready, but Dr. Landry will […]
The other day I had to work with a student on the range – he had every piece of high-dollar equipment, down to the Krye pants. I’m pretty sure his battle belt cost more than my Glock (and that’s saying something), all of his rifles and pistols combined cost more than my 98 Land Cruiser. […]
The statement ‘stab them in the face’ has gotten quite popular as of late – with Pramek students spreading it, podcasts repeating it, and the 2A/firearms crowd beginning the say it at seminars.

Had a lot of people ask me…’Matt, when will we see new content?’ So, let me be candid – two decades in, and with Pramek at more than a decade now, I needed to take the early part of this year to get Pastless.net launched. It’s been an exciting few months, releasing two new personal […]
Recently I read a post by an MMA instructor stating, ‘Why are people making things more difficult than they are? Punch someone in the face…a punch is a punch, a face is a face. It’s not all this biomechanics and thought. Don’t overcomplicate what you are doing.’ I chuckled, wondering how many times this […]
There are a lot of ‘demonstrations’ of knife defense drills online, but very few are realistic. Usually the situation is perfect, the video highly edited for the perfect example, the student is smaller than the instructor and well coached on how to act, there is little to no true resistance. The knife attack defense is […]
On our newsletter we are doing a month of discussion on targeting the body. So if you aren’t a member of our newsletter, make sure you join!!!

Movement’s like we teach in, when applying The Gear, and in our upcoming (sssshhhhh!) movement program are all about application.
