About Master Matthews

"My sole job is making sure my clients achieve what they are seeking from Martial Arts, whether it's fitness, character, discipline, personal, physical, mental, spiritual.... "The first step to great self defense comes from the inside out... think, act, and conduct yourself as the person you wish to become; this habit will become your reality."

Kung Fu San Soo

Why learn KUNG FU SAN SOO over any other Martial Art?  KUNG FU SAN SOO is not a fad or sport.  It has been the Mother Art of Martial Arts for thousands of years using not just punches and kicks or leverages and throws, but all parts of the body and the mind.  All this is done in perfect rhythm and directed to effective targets of the body.  These techniques can be changed instantly, depending on your situation.  KUNG FU SAN SOO gives you extreme power, agility, balance, coordination, and long term wellness both mentally and physically.

Whether you are looking for a new fitness challenge or the ultimate in Martial Arts style such as Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kenpo, Judo, Aikido, Taekwondo, or other great systems, PHD Martial Arts and Kung Fu San Soo is worth checking into as it encompasses all of the above and so much more!
