Title page  Manual 3



We are excited to announce the release of the the third manual in the Conceptual Learning Method series.

For those unfamiliar, Conceptual Learning Method, or CLM, is Pramek’s teaching and training philosophy.  Unlike many other styles and systems, we have a fully developed, researched adagogically based system for teaching, testing, and learning.

An example – most teachers and systems speak in terms of pedagogy.  But, pedagogy is based on the education of children, which is why we have looked teaching martial art from the point of view of adagogy, which is the education of adults.

You don’t deserve to be taught like a child, you have experiences and habits…so we won’t teach you like you don’t.

Most people who pick up the CLM tell us, ‘I’ve never read anything like this.’  And there is at reason – it’s not your traditional martial art manuals.  It’s applicable theory you can take and apply to any martial art.

The third in the series, ‘The Teacher and The Student’ is now available in our shop for purchase:

The third installment of the Conceptual Learning Method series, ‘The Teacher and The Student’ is a collection of CLM based essays by Matt Powell on how to best build and maintain the teacher student relationship.
