More importantly, Matt is very down to earth and able to impart his knowledge and skills to others regardless of their ability or belt level.I really value having a coach who is internationally experienced and who is able to explain techniques in a way that I can understand and use to improve my own judo and grappling. I have been practicing martial arts on and off for 20 years and this is some of the best training I have done. Matt’s competitive record speaks for itself, but I can tell you his coaching ability is outstanding.”
