Sifu Matthew, CEO of The Martial Arts of Wellness

The Upreneur podcast has partnered up with SCORE, hosted by Jeremy Straub, to help bring engaging conversations with today’s top leaders and business owners. On today’s episode, we sat down with Sifu Matthew to get his insight on how his love of martial arts inspired him to create a business, the Marital Arts of Wellness, how to align your mind and body to become self-aware, and, how being your authentic self is vital to your business.  

Sifu Matthew is a Kung Fu Master, world renowned healer, athletic performance expert and founder of The Martial Arts of Wellness (MAOW). He is a master of understanding the electromagnetic forces of the body in relation to strength, wellness, and performance.  He is known for his ability to regenerate body tissues, ligaments, and bones rapidly to activate the healing process.  He has worked with many thousands, including pro-athletes and Hollywood stars. Some of his groundbreaking work includes regenerating dogs’ hips, dissolving arthritis, and preventing numerous degenerative conditions from surgery. 

Sifu Matthew’s creation of the Martial Arts of Wellness came from his more than 41 years of experience in the martial arts, which inspired him to discover an intimate process of how electromagnetic forces interact within and without of the body. With this scientific knowledge, Sifu Matthew was able to heal his own body completely from several major chronic debilitating injuries from competitive sports. Some of those injuries included: an ankle with bone spurs and a severed nerve cut accidentally during surgery which left him with constant pain and irreparable structural damage, a finger that was shattered with no room for pins and was predicted to have arthritis and no movement, and a host of other conditions that had no response to traditional or alternative medicine.

Matthew was able to heal his injuries permanently through mastering an understanding of his own electromagnetic forces, precise elements and angles of motion needed to activate these forces for healing.  His understanding of these forces came from studying through interaction the precise trajectory of the creative force cycles that are responsible for our health or disease.
