I got there and no one was there. I'm guessing that either the class isnt going as well as he hoped or i was in the wrong area. I popped to Lauralhurst for a bit of pushing hands so it wasn't a complete disappointment.

That's great! I hope he gets a consistent enough core group to see Yizong take off in Portland.

He has very small group at the moment but i wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
If anyone in yamhill county or Beaverton was wanting to train i am sure he could be convinced

I've been to three classes with Matt now and his skills are world class. I highly recommend him and he really needs more students so if you're in Portland I'd say come and get some of the good stuff. BTW he's currently only holding classes on thursday and sunday.

Best,

S

I can personally recommend Matt very highly. Do you know if he's training in any other arts these days besides the Yizong stuff?
