Matt Lucas

The one and only...

I’ve been practicing martial arts seriously for 30 years.  It’s my best friend and I’m still blown away by the depth of this practice.  Yoga and martial arts at one point were together.  I learned them in tandem once I became a teenager.  I had Sway back, bad painful bow legs, bad joints, and a slightly painful scoliosis.  The posture work and opening of Yoga with the Strengthening of Martial arts helped remedy what I was told were limitations.  Really they gave me a skill set of awareness of posture and forced me to approach athletics from a holistic lens. 

Now I’m fine, no pain, strong joint and spine, and I love to share this practice. I’ve studied and received black belts or equivalent in Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Persian Nabard, BaGua and also studied modern combatives such as SCARS and Systema.  I love them all…  My Passion is being able to translate these systems in a way that wont erode our bodies away using sequencing and mindfulness.  Come practice…
