There are people you meet in your life whom you may not to spend very much time around but leave a deep impression on you. My friend Chris Matakas is one of those people. A Ricardo Almeida brown belt and instructor, Chris is an amazing example of a man that has given himself completely to martial arts and become better for it.
Every time I am lucky enough to see Chris, he ALWAYS has a smile and a hug for you, he is so genuinely happy to see you it’s contagious. I remember a long time ago I asked my hockey coach what makes a player great? His responded by saying “A player that makes everyone around him better.” That’s exactly what Chris is, that spark in the gym that makes everyone better because he wants to see everyone grow and live to their potential.
Chis has now written a book titled "My Mastery" and I really want all of you to pick it up, not only because this is my friend and I want to see him driving around in a Maserati (Even if he had the money I doubt he would be caught dead in one) but because I think he can help you. He can help us, be happier, be better, be more courageous to follow our dreams. I just ordered my copy, I just hope he signs it for me when I see him!
