Martial Arts

Matt has been teaching martial arts for the past fifteen years privately in Los Angeles, California and at the world-renowned Sharkey’s Karate School in Naperville, Illinois, home of six world champions including Mike Chaturantabut, Craig Henningsen, Chris Brewster and Brendon Huor.

Being on the cutting edge of extreme Martial Arts, Matt has trained some of today’s top competitors in the sport. As a fourth black belt, a world champion martial artist, and a NASM (National Association of Sports Medicine) certified trainer, Matt has combined his knowledge of body mechanics with his vast martial arts experience to create the safest and more efficient training regiment, using proper body alignment and cross training techniques. Matt has broken down every aspect of the sport from performance and presentation to basic kicks, making it easy for anyone to learn the martial arts, sport karate or acrobatic kicking.

In 2006, Matt completed Matt Mullins’ Basic Tricks, his first book on extreme martial arts and tricking. The book takes an in-depth look into how to develop your technique to perform extreme martial art moves and tricks.
