About this pro

I have been teaching Filipino Martial Arts (weapons, joint locks, strikes, kicks) since 1998 and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (ground fighting) for 5 years. I have been a police officer since 1993 and a police defensive tactics instructor since 1996. I can travel to you and tailor classes to individual student's needs. 

I love getting to exercise while helping people improve themselves!

    First off, Matt is very welcoming and makes it comfortable, especially for beginners, to dive into the world of martial arts. Matt can teach beginner through advanced levels. He has an awesome grasp of the fundamentals, but he can build these fundamentals into sophisticated systems for intermediate and advanced practitioners. In terms of his teaching, again very approachable format. Each movement is broken down into its individual steps. Very technical and practical delivery. It’s a great format for kids to learn too. Great guy... couldn’t recommend more!

    Matt Stokes is a great teacher. He is good with kids and adults. He will adapt his teaching style to explain things in a way that make sense to you so that there is a better understanding. He is very supportive and encouraging. He creates a safe environment that fosters growth.

    Matt Stokes is a detailed, highly technical BJJ instructor. He is a true martial artist and always comes prepared with techniques and drills to provide the best BJJ lesson possible.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

During private lessons, I can assess a student's skills and build a program based on their needs. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 5th degree black belt in Filipino Martial Arts and a 4-stripe brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have been teaching police defensive tactics since 1996.
