Entrepreneur, creator, business innovator. From teaching military units to speaking at technology and security conferences, Matt takes the best of both worlds - entrepreneur experience and corporate success - and combines them into a relatable, teachable method. Authoring multiple books, online courses, and Matt's background gained from teaching around the world gives students a relatable, experience guide to personal development and growth.
Founded in 2004 by Matt Powell, Pramek was created to apply a scientific process to martial art. Leading the charge in an industry that has shied away from scientific explanation, Pramek has grown from a small group of practitioners to a recognized system of thought and study.
Filming hundreds of instructional videos, Matt changed the way that martial art is studied with a principle based methodology that anyone could learn but could be applied to any martial art.
Having taught thousands around the world, Matt realized the biggest challenge in martial art was that teachers were rarely taught how to teach and students were never taught how to learn. Matt, working with a group of researchers, develop the CLM, or Conceptual Learning Method, a four book pedagogical series that today is the basis for gyms and schools world-wide.
While many entrepreneurs leave corporate America, Matt has stayed. Combining his studies in Pramek with his studies in business, Matt combined the two into a successful career in leadership in security integration.
Learning alongside self-made millionaires and CEOs, Matt recognized that his business success was based on his application of Pramek. This led to Matt developing the PEAK, or Potential Enhancing Applied Knowledge. PEAK has produced multiple new projects, including UNDO and CONFIDENCE.
These hybrid courses on Udemy involve books and video instruction, with hours of personal instruction from Matt and workbooks.
Additionally, Matt is an avid outdoorsman, hiking, backpacking, and vanlifing his way across the southwest.
