Get martial arts training. Go there now.

I've been training martial arts for over 30 years. TKD, BJJ, other initials too, as well as, Persian Systems, Chinese, Japanese, Philipino. I've been teaching and coaching for over 15 years. Pro fighters, law enforcement, I've worked with actors and stunt teams, nationally and internationally. I love martial arts and I love sharing martial arts. I just came off a great TV show as The trainer and one of the lead stunt performers on Into the Badlands on AMC. We were made up of members of the Jackie Chan Team along with the legends from Master Dee Dee (Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Jet Li's Double, Etc...) It was a great honor and challenge. I stay very active in this field and help people rediscover the longevity that is often forgotten about in such a "performance" based culture.

Contact Matt for stunt work. Go there now.

My real passion is taking care of high impact performers and getting actors and stunties focusing on having longer and healthier carriers, this business can break you. I've worked with some of my heroes and some of the best in the world. It's always an honor and a pleasure.

I am also a member and dear friend of the infamous THE STUNT PEOPLE

I studied precision stunt driving in Dublin Ireland at the great Stunt Drive Ireland school. 

 

Book a private personal training session with Matt. Go there now.

Now that I'm back, I'm taking clients again. You'll learn in depth the connections of function, power, grace, and how it all ties into a practice. Develop effortlessness through effort, communication, awareness, emotional intelligence, and how to turn the goal oriented lens into a longevity oriented lens. Let us meet and then we can get to work. Yoga, Martial arts, Persian stuff... I'm grateful to have a head start on many things that are just now entering into the fitness and training world such as club swinging, "slow" work, Stress inoculation, etc... all things that are now being studied and implemented in  Human enhancement departments for military and other groups that are just realizing that breathing and relaxation is good.

A lot of our yoga needs "little tweaks" and those "tweaks" can turn our practices into real moments of expansion. Find the mindset of realizing the simplicity of these systems. Just remember. 

  • Yoga was developed by poor people in a time of suffering with a lot of time on their hands. So lets learn to observe our lives NOW. 
  • If you keep bending a paperclip it WILL break, so let's learn to fortify our structures as well.  
  • If you can't walk with it, it doesn't exist, so... find the ways to integrate the relaxation that we find on the mat into your day to day
  • Discover that there's a lot more dynamic range to Yoga than we give it credit for. Did you know that it's also the OLDEST KNOWN MARTIAL ART?

Listen to some music. Go there now.

I write songs, it was my job for years, I still make records. Music keeps me in love with humans. I play Rock n Roll. I love loud guitars and feel that a bands job is to CRUSH!!! 

Influences include: Fugazi, Metallica, Led Zepplin, Tom Petty, James Brown, Pleasure Club, Radiohead, Iron Maiden, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson... Nevermind, I could go on for days, and if you can't... start exploring more music. There's so much good stuff out there y'all!!!

In a perfect world I would be a better writer, I would write for a tv show with a group of exceptional people. However, my biggest fear has been releasing my writing. Thus over the past couple years, I've been doing it in small increments on my blogs. I've received some great opportunities since working in TV to get my beak wet and practice even more. Looking forward to growing this part of my passion.

In music my songs have always been "Lyric Driven." now my love for writing is moving towards being: 

  • More long form
  • Less about "Girls" or "The Abstract"
  • It rhymes less
  • Funny sometimes
  • Not songs
