Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coaches
Matt McPeakeBrazilian Jiu Jitsu Coach
Over 30 Years of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu experience
Brown's Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu is proud to be affiliated with Professor Matt McPeake. He has been training in discipline of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for over 20 years, brininging a wealth of knowledge to our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program. He received his Black Belt after being tested by the council of travelling Black Belts at the 2018 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Globetrotters Maine Camp, and is currently affiliated with Jay Page's Jiu Jitsu Academy in Phoenix Arizona.
Matt's teaching philosophy focuses on defence and escapes, and is rooted in concepts that are applicable in self-defence and combat sports. His reasoning behind his defence-first philosophy is developing one's self-confidence and assurance that if you're comfortable defending an opponent's attacks, you are in much better position to launch a counter-attack when opportunities are presented.
Professor Matt has a very calm and comfortable teaching style and takes extra time with his students to help them learn to the best of their abilities.
