Meet Matt Perrins
Matt Perrins began martial arts in 1985, at the age of 13, with two goals in mind. Matt hoped his martial arts training would allow him to become a World Champion by 25 and to instruct the sport as a profession.
He reached those goals, becoming a World Champion at 28 years old, and he’s owned a martial arts school since 1996. Moving forward, Matt’s goal is to help others accomplish their goals through the benefit of training in the martial arts.
