Sunshine Coast, QLD: Matt Fiddes, a UK-based celebrity trainer and bodyguard to the late Michael Jackson, was in Australia in October 2023. The founder of Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Sunshine Coast was in the country for the Sunshine Coast’s Martial Arts National Championships.
The Matt Fiddes Martial Arts National Championships have been running for many years. But the 2023 edition set a new record as the largest yet, with over 400 participants from local and interstate regions, with some of the competitors as young as three years old.
In addition to interacting and taking pictures with parents, participants, and spectators, Matt Fiddes’s visit was part of creating more awareness about Sunshine Coast martial arts. To many, Matt is a revered figure, and his presence played a vital role in generating buzz around martial arts. After his successful tour in Australia, more people are likely to make the decision to enrol in martial arts programs.
Matt Fiddes also spent time connecting with the local Sunshine Coast community. He is known not only for his celebrity appearances in TV shows like “Rich House Poor House” but also for being a thriving business figure. During his visit, Matt talked to different audiences about how Australians can build wealth and offered insights on how people transitioning to new careers can handle the often tricky and unclear journey.
Another agenda of his Australian tour was navigating how his brand, Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Sunshine Coast, and the community can deal with youth crime. According to Ryan Canavan, the director of the Matt Fiddes Martial Arts group, one effective approach to tackle youth crime is by establishing more schools like theirs in communities.
Speaking about the championship event via his official Facebook page, Matt Fiddes noted: “I would like to thank Matt Fiddes Australia and all the franchises, instructors, and students for looking after myself and my family so well! Super proud of you all! MF Australia has become something that I am extremely proud of! The standards, growth, ambitions, and dedication to raising the standards of MF martial arts are outstanding!”
