Matt Fordham

BJJ Purple Belt – Assistant Instructor

Matt started his Jiu Jitsu journey in 2013, training at the old Maroochydore academy under Alex Breckell which was later taken over by Black Belt Paul Chapman, Matt then moved with Paul and the Maroochydoore club to the new and larger location in Kawana Waters where it merged with Infinity Currimundi to create the current Infinity HQ.

Soon after changing gyms he tried Mixed Martial Arts for the first time and found his true passion, to better himself in martial arts.

From this newfound focus he began training ferociously in Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu, starting the never ending journey to become a formidable fighter.

He began helping out in the junior classes eventually becoming a valuable and experienced assistant instructor. After 3 years and multiple competitions as a Blue Belt he earned his purple belt in 2018. Still training and learning daily Matt is persistently honing his skills and responsibilities as a martial artist and a full time instructor; always trying to be stronger, faster and smarter than he was yesterday.

Matt is our assistant instructor for junior classes and can be found at the academy on the mats taking kids classes 6 days per week.
