January 27, 2020
Hey, hello & welcome to the first EVER episode of Chew The Chat Podcast with Sam Souls. 
This episode is part 1 of 2. It’s a fascinating story with our guest Matthew Frost. 
Matthew is the founder and owner of Function First Martial Arts Academy. Matthew left school not early enough and set off travelling after trying to enter the workplace
and realising his wanderlust was simply too strong to ignore.
Being a hardcore Punk Rocker living in a bus travelling the UK and helping to pioneer
the free party culture in the late 80’s and early 90’s Matthew's high octane life style caught
up with him and a brief holiday at her majesties pleasure gave Matthew time to build a
new plan for his future.
Off to Europe he went on his release, sound system in tow helping to build a lively,
high octane scene with moments of life changing impact from Portugal to Poland
but ultimately burning out and in need of some soul searching introspection. On his arrival back to the UK he began to repair his perspective and re build his
energy levels and his confidence and found martial arts. In true Punk DIY approach
Matthew realigned his energy and began a martial arts journey that led him to run a
very successful full-time academy with five full-time staff and now complete with a
float centre and cryotherapy facility his Academy is a leading light in the UK.
Matthew also uses that Punk ethic and energy within his dealings on the stock exchange
and renovating houses and snowboarding.
His deep fascination with learning new things and creativity continues to thrive and inspire.
Enjoy this part 1 guys it’s an inspiring white knuckle bus ride!
