Sensei Matthew Warde
Sensei Matthew joined Xen-Do as a Sensei in December of 2019, looking for a career and lifestyle change. Since his martial arts journey started, there has been a constant struggle with balancing his training and his working hours, but here at Xen-Do School of Martial Arts they are one and the same.
Falling in love with martial arts at a young age back home in Cyprus, Sensei Matthew took a few karate classes before finally being signed up to a Tae-Kwon Do school at 14 and his martial arts journey began. He was awarded my 1st Dan black belt after 4 years of training and have since trained in different martial arts such as Muay Thai. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing.
Having medalled in both Tae-Kwon Do and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions Sensei Matthew am really looking forward to representing Xen-Do in our next tournament.
Outside of the dojo and martial arts, he practice and teach Archery in London. Sensei Matthew also enjoy listening to music, watching old films, and reading his collection of graphic novels and comic books.
"The opportunity to train 24/7 with professional Martial Arts instructors of different backgrounds and with students of all ages has been a dream come true and I walk into the dojo every day with a big smile on my face."
