US Navy SEAL(ret) Lt. Larry Yatch and his wife Anne, a Defense Intelligence Analyst, began Sealed Mindset after Larry's medical discharge from the Navy in 2010. Larry, who had served multiple deployments to Iraq commanding SEAL Team 3, needed to find some way to continue his life mission: defending the United States and its citizens. Anne, came up with the concept of translating the critical situational awareness skills that special operations warriors must have to survive deep behind enemy lines into a training system that would protect the weakest person on the street. Those situational awareness skills and the defensive skills Larry learned as a SEAL created the foundation of the Sealed Mindset training method.
Larry is currently the CEO of Sealed Mindset Leaders, a corporate leadership development company
Anne is currently the chief operations manager for MindsetMatters, a team dedicated to the future of America by educating young people in leadership, communication, and personal development.
