About Matthew Raymond Cohen

Sifu Matthew Cohen is the founder and creator of Sacred Energy Arts: a unique, integrated system of health and self development drawing from the teachings of yoga, qigong, and martial arts. Matthew developed this method after discovering that even though yoga, qigong, and the internal martial arts each stand alone as great health systems, that something powerful and transformative emerges as the practices join. Together they complement each other to create a complete practice.

Matthew has been fully immersed in the study and application of Martial, Yogic and Healing Arts for over 30 years.

At a young age Matthew instinctively gravitated towards yoga, discovering the hidden secrets within the breath, balance, and strength of the poses. Matthew’s practice continued to grow, obtaining certifications in Ashtanga under Tim Miller and Hatha Yoga under Max Strom, Sarah Powers, and Saul David Raye. Matthew has the highest Yoga Alliance certification as an E-RYT® 500 certified teacher.

At 12-years-old, Matthew began martial arts training at Kam Yuen’s School of Tai Mantis Kung Fu, eventually earning the rank of 5th degree black belt. He went on to attain the title of Guru in Kun Tao Silat under the masterful Willem de Thouars. Inspired by these teachers and their ability to draw great inner strength from these practices, Matthew went on to study the three great internal martial arts of China: Tai Chi, Xing Yi, and Ba Gua. Matthew had the good fortune to train many hours privately in China with the renown grandmaster Duan Zhi Liang. There he received the masters blessing to share his style of Primordial Chaos Qigong. He then studied under Liu Xuyang in Neija, Ba Gua, and Xing Yi. Matthew earned a position as a 6th generation teacher in the lineage and only person recognized to teach his style in the United States. Today Matthew is a highly sought after master teacher of Tai Chi as well as Qigong: The art of energy cultivation.

Matthew is great believer in the life long journey of the continual growth in the Sacred Energy Arts. He currently is learning and training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Master Jean Jacques Machado.

Matthew is based in Malibu, California and travels internationally teaching workshops, intensives, and teacher trainings.
