How do grabs work – Matt shows you from a recent seminar.
I remember when the argument first started on forums. It’s an age old argument but technology has forced it to change. Instead of seminars or magazine reader write-ins, it had shifted to the digital space. ‘Mixed martial art is more effective than traditional martial art.’ ‘A traditional martial art master can overcome any mixed martial […]
Strategy? Biomechanics? Distraction? Power development? Proper form? It’s all here – in 4 hours of education. Combative Striking is the ultimate in innovation for striking.

Mug her if you dare. Pramek Germany with the awesome footage of one of their students destroying the mitts!
Matt co-instructs with Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics on close quarter combat pistol retention. A great 17 minutes of stellar instruction.
We often discuss levers in releases from grabs, but what about the concept of the screw? Watch the video below, or buy the full one hour instructional at http://pramek.com/p-shop/product/the-screw/

The physics of dive defense. Often times we see struggling when defending against a waist grab or dive because the mechanics and physics need adjusting. In this lecture, from our ‘Combative Rotation’ manual, Matt deep dives the physics, and we even give you a link to see it in action in a video from 3 […]

This isn’t a fitness video of people lifting weights holding a pistol – this video combines the scientific process of CCIA (Combine, Coordination, Integrate, Assimilate) from Pramek with the firearms instruction of Sage Dynamics. F3 is a method of fitness that constantly reinforces proper technique while making a shooter faster, more accurate, and stronger. Matt […]
You don’t always have to fight off the wall – sometimes, you can fight along it. It is common to use strength and power to overcome an opponent, but when the opponent is bigger and stronger…going through the opponent just isn’t an option.
Pramek’s newest, ‘Against the Wall’, releases! We are pleased to announce the release of our newest instruction, ‘Against the wall: Fighting in Confined Spaces.’ In this 2 hour instructional video, Matt Powell shoots in three locations teaching the science, movement, and methods of fighting in confined spaces. Moving from the studio to a basement to […]
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 […]
Pramek spans beyond martial art, combative, and movement training and explores our science through a variety of means. Over the weekend, while filming a new video series, we took the Simunitions FX equipment into Matt’s basement for a force on force study of on-cover and off-cover techniques. The relationship between Pramek and Sage Dynamics is […]
