Matakas Jiu Jitsu has been a huge blessing for both of my kids. It has given them focus, discipline and a community of friendships that are like no other. The coaches are wonderful and truly care about the progress each student makes.
Chris Matakas received his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt from 4th degree black belt Ricardo Almeida in 2015. Professor Chris was the Head Instructor of Ricardo Almeida Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Newtown, Pa for four years before branching out and bringing world-class Jiu Jitsu to the Burlington Township area.
Though successful in Jiu Jitsu competition and undefeated in Amateur MMA, Chris's main focus is using Jiu Jitsu as a tool for personal development for his students. He has published four books regarding using Jiu Jitsu to train our mind and body to become better versions of ourselves.
