I teach one thing and one thing only;
: 'Self Defense on the street, for the street'! No tournament competition-no false promises of helping you lose weight-or especially teaching how to break boards or bricks with your bare hands!!!! Just realistic self defense for anyone when you need it
I not only love training in the Martial Arts. But in teaching as well!
Sifu Matt Lovio is very passionate about martial arts. He has studied under several prominent martial arts masters. He teaches several styles of martial arts. I am studying Hsing I Chuan with Sifu Matt. I am interested in the internal side of the martial arts both in its health benefits but also in its martial applications. Sifu Matt emphasizes the concepts and principles behind each form versus just memorizing techniques. I like his open minded approach to martial arts. It allows for self expression as I advance in the art. He is patient and casual when he conducts the class. This fits my personality more than a military approach to martial arts classes. Classes are held at a park one on one. The benefit is you get to train outdoors. The drawback is it can get distracting with the traffic noise and sometimes onlookers. So far so good though. I started training with Sifu Matt back in February and I feel I have learned so much in that short period of time. I want to learn everything I can about Hsing I Chuan and then move on to other Chinese styles.
I've enjoyed being taught by Matt. He is passionate about the martial arts, an expert in the field. It's been an honor to be taught by Matt, I can see the progress and his teaching style is ideal for novices such as myself. I highly recommend him for anyone who wants to learn and grow in the martial arts.
What is their objectives?
I attended Pasadena City College as a 'Creative Writing Major, and minored in English'. Currently on hiatus, and hope to return. I'm also an actor, writer, and published author.

$240.00 per month
$425.00 for a demonstration
$525.00 for a one day seminar, $1000 for a two day seminar; on up.
My prices of course, are negotiable
Back in 2005, is when I first began to teach. I've had a blast ever since, and want to continue to teach.
Only adults so far, but I teach to all.
Unfortunately, I've never done a big event before. And I've always dreamed of conducting a seminar. I've seen some and there a lot of fun to go to.
Depends upon of what your goals are;
: are you looking to get in shape-improve your tournament game-or just learn how to protect yourself? Make sure to interview the teacher, is he/she overly strict or passive? Do they pay attention to their students, or not? Do they yell too much, too demanding; or worse..... Charge a high price with little results?
No questions, ask the instructor if you could watch one of their classes. If they currently have no students, then ask if he or she can give you one quick free lesson? If they say no to either, they may be very busy. And it is plausible, but still..... You won't see how they are like?
