Matt is about as well respected as a martial artist can get. When we asked people who they looked up to most in the martial arts world, nine times out of ten Matt’s name came up. It probably has something to do with the dozens of world championships he has won and that he’s a really nice guy who’s willing to help others improve their skills.
Matt has been inducted to numerous Halls of Fame, including Quebec Open, Ocean State Nationals, Just for Champions, and New York State Championships. His work ethic is incredible and should be used as an example for all training in the martial arts.
