Matt Currie’s martial journey began 34 years ago with karate lessons. After trying kickboxing and Muay Thai in his early teens, he eventually began training in Tae Kwon Do and earned his black belt in 1999. Matt now holds the rank of 5th degree black belt and instructs Qi Gong, Wing Chun, both traditional and sport TKD, as well as general self-defense and some weapons. As managing director of Five Chamber Martial Arts Canada and founder of Lonewolf Martial Arts (a certified TITF school), Master Currie hopes to answer a small part of the global call for each of us to positively impact today’s youth.
