How MLMPI Preparatory Academy Began
From Bullied Youth to Professional Athlete & Youth Advocate
MLMPI Preparatory Academy (MLMPI) is an Emotional Intelligence based school system to support our youth to become passionate, loving and inspired to live life. Daniel Puder the founder is a Deputy Sheriff, Undefeated Mixed Martial Arts Fighter and WWE’s Tough Enough Champion. While Daniel is now a retired professional athlete, Things were quite different for him when he was growing up. He struggled with being overweight and was also in Special Education classes throughout the majority of his schooling, which caused him to be an easy target of bullying. When he began to hear of the kids who were committing suicide from being bullied, he felt a personal connection to the issue and knew that something needed to be done to change the mindset of our youth! Rather than simply saying a few public words about this issue, Daniel was compelled to create a program and university accredited curriculum that provided long term solutions and could be implemented in schools and corporations around the world. To ensure the success of every student, every teacher at MLMPIPA must have either a teaching certification, equivalent four-year degree or specialized skills, knowledge or expertise in a specified field.
