Matt has practiced martial arts most of his life and has traveled around the world to seek out the very best teachers he could find in a variety of systems to give him a better understanding of what makes a complete martial artist. This journey of knowledge has led Matt to train extensively in Wing Chun Kung Fu, Dog Brothers Martial Arts (Kali & Weapon fighting) & Satria Fighting Arts (Pencak Silat). He has also trained in many other arts including Muay Thai Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Taekwondo
Matt has taught people from all walks of life; from housewives to serving members of the armed forces and security services. He has also run bespoke Self Protection courses at schools and colleges and has taught seminars at martial arts trade shows, dojos and combat gyms as a guest teacher
In 2013 Matt started training privately with Steven and Laarni Benitez in Pencak Silat and their Satria Fighting Arts, being accepted as an apprentice instructor in 2014. This beautifully deceptive and explosive art allowed Matt to fully harness all his previous training and to continue to explore many new skills.
In addition to martial arts, Matt has completed a number of Kettlebell and fitness trainer courses and offers personal training in Forest Row, East Grinstead and the surrounding areas.
Matt Tucker now teaches at his full time studio in Forest Row, East Grinstead offering a variety of martial arts & fitness classes for both adults and children. In 2015 Matt is launching his new Warriors Kids and Junior Warriors children’s classes.
