Site adjustments!

We are making adjustments to our various sites, so if the site is down, non-functioning, looks different – please excuse the mess. The adjustments will be finished quickly.

A Review: The Helix

Hi Team:

Finally, a movement program that was efficiently designed for the purpose of combat and everyday use. There are many so called joint mobility programs out there that will have you moving around in “the six degrees of freedom” but only one program will train you to move efficiently seven days a week on the job, and in everyday life! That program is called The Helix: Standing Movement. Matt Powell does a great job of showing us the mechanical levers and how they apply to our human anatomy’s efficient movement. He also shows you how to move so you can get the job done in a fight for your life or performing simple everyday task more efficiently saving your body years of unnecessary pain. There is no wasted time when you train in Pramek, the warm up is efficient movement training that develop practical movement skills for combat and life. Other programs just have a warm-up and then they train. This program is your training from movement to application!

The Cleveland DLP Group has been practicing this program for three-weeks now and every week our movement keeps getting better. We are simply amazed how well this methodical program has guided us into efficient combative movement with the added bonus of keeping our joints healthy for every day uses. One member of our team has had limited range of motion in one of his shoulders and now after a few weeks of following the Helix program he finds himself able to use his shoulder more every week!

For years, many of us in the Russian martial arts and other martial arts communities have been awed by the ” Magical Flowing” movements we have seen by the “Masters”. Folks, the good news is that “Flowing” is no longer reserved to a Spetsnatz master, or some master from the far east. “Flowing” is really point by point joint rotation which is fully disclosed to those who purchase the Helix: standing movement program. Matt and his Pramek team break movement down from the simple joints individually as well as in kinematic chains! Training that was once only available to elite groups is now available to those of us willing to study and implement the training methods provided in the Helix. Superior Movement is available to all of us who practice the Helix standing movement program with diligent study and daily practice!

Sincerely,

S. Lardieri, Ohio

The Gear is in final production!

The Gear is in final production – finishing off our 3 part movement series!

In celebration, a reminder that ‘The Helix’ and ‘&’ are available!

Oldie…but goodie.

Great video of Matt teaching the Cossack Sabre….
Most ‘Russian style’ teachers do not teach these types of weapons. As an ode to Pramek’s Krasnodar lineage, Matt did a 40 minute video on a traditional Russian weapon.

What’s going on…

Hey everyone!

So, I wanted to get in an update before heading home tomorrow and spending the weekend filming and shooting.

I have three words for you: video growing pains. Every organization goes through them.

We have hired a new web firm that is amazing. You will see a lot of changes coming. Pramek.com is completely changing. Pramek SPIKE is done (just waiting for a few small changes).

Pramek videos….

The videos are up for download to our repeat customers and DLP groups. We are working out the final kinks and then the web firm will finalize the design. You will see it this coming week to be able to download at will.

SPIKE – this is an important project for me. The new site is awesome. But, deals we have been working on for months are finally coming through and finalizing to allow us to move forward in a mass manner.

Now, the videos: This weekend we are finishing some videos. You will also see a lot of new content…constant content….of videos for instruction which is showing Pramek as we release the videos.

We are trying to narrow our focus on very particular areas. Get the information into very small packages that are palatable for the next year of growth.

You’ll see after The Gear…Levers and Fulcrums. Then you’ll see a whole series that no one has shot before like we will.

All the while working on more videos.

The growing pains are finally being grown through to get us set up. I always knew 2011 would be a tough year, but didn’t want to wait until 2012 to begin releasing. I learned a long time ago it is better to just go ahead and get going now than wait for the perfect plan…because you end up with birth pains in the perfect plan anyway.

So, keep an eye out – especially next week into the week after – the site changes will be awesome :) I’m excited for what we’re turning into.

balance….

I once had a teacher who told me, ‘You can not prepare for when combat starts, you can only prepare for when combat has begun.’ His meaning was that combative violence is fast, unpredictable, it can happen with little provocation and little notice.

I’ve put a lot of thought into this concept – that you can not truly prepare for when combat starts, only for when it has begun. To simply be a good fighter and not worry about seeing a fight coming – or one would simply not enjoy life waiting for the next fight to start. But when it does, you would be ready in mind-body-spirit.

Just like violence. Continue reading
