Mr. and Mrs. Mattevi have been operating full-time martial arts academies since 1994. Beginning in Duluth, MN, they operated academies in Superior, WI, and Greensboro, NC. Even though the Mattevis have moved on to Arizona, the academies continue in the Twin Ports of Duluth/Superior and Greensboro. Their programs consisted of traditional Korean Song Moo Kwan, Muay Thai (kickboxing), and Gracie Jiu Jitsu.

Martial Arts: It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are!
The Martial Arts Academy began with the premise that the knowledge and physical disciplines handed down through centuries of masters can directly enhance the quality of life in this day.  We believe that the concept of readiness, balanced with a peaceful existence, can equip us to face the everyday challenges which inevitably cross our paths.

It is our hope that this site will awaken the reality that within you there is person of great potential.  Whether it is realized through the training offered by our academy or through some other medium, it is your personal responsibility and quest to harness that potential in the most constructive and fulfilling ways possible.
