Matthew Clay in Columbus - Columbus Martial Arts Academy

Matthew Clay

Coach Matt is originally from Okinowa, Japan! As a military kid, he moved an uncountable number of times until he wound up in Columbus. He started martial arts when he was 17 years old, and is a 6 year veteran of the Military. He loves the mindset that martial arts gives - that even when things are hard, you can’t quit. He holds several medals from grappling and from MMA competitions.


His favorite things to see as a coach are the major changes in kids lives. He believes the effects of a regular practice can be seen in every aspect of a person’s life. His favorite part of martial arts specifically, is the intense physical fitness it gives.


Outside of the studio, Matt can be found running either around town, or at the gym followed by weights. He practices wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, and Muay Thai.
