To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter of reference for Matthew Bayley. I have known Matthew for the past five years and have worked with him as a guest speaker in a course at Beth-EI College of Nursing. Matthew has presented information regarding self-defense techniques to students enrolled in the Women's Health Care Issues course. Matthew has been a dynamic speaker on all occasions. He presents a comprehensive overview of the problem of assault on women. He presents factual data and makes the information real, yet it does not overwhelm the students. He quickly establishes the idea that each student can learn self-defense techniques and can become more knowledgeable about self-protection. The techniques are quickly learned, and students leave the presentation feeling empowered. Matthew's sense of dedication to his mission, and his sense of humor make his presentations fun as well as very useful. He is consistently able to obtain and hold the student’s attention, and provides support, and encouragement as the students learn the techniques.

I would recommend Matthew highly in any presentations that he would offer.

 A Parent's Thanks 08/19/2017

Thank you, for all of your kind and guiding words to the kids today – your interactions with them are priceless and will carry a life long impact. 

I keep forgetting to tell you.  Do you remember when you pulled me aside to talk about  (---------'s  )challenge with his tracking of his foot movements?   Well when we got home that night he pulled me aside and showed me his foot.  He had a huge bruise from a tendon strain (or something like that) that I did not know about.                                                                                                                                                   That you caught that change in his movement is just amazing. 
Thank you for all that you do for our family.

Since 1977 the Vail Academy of Martial Arts has been the one constant in martial arts education in the Vail Valley.  Children and adults benefit from a wide variety of blended martial arts programs.  Grand Master Mathew Bayley, a 7th degree black belt in Chinese martial arts and a 3rd degree black belt in ju-jitsu, is also widely recognized as a successful educator.  This combination of martial arts and educational expertise is found nowhere else in the Vail Valley.  The Academy offers programs tailored to youth and adults, in a range of settings from classes to private instruction. 

Rather than teach one style of Martial Arts, Master Bayley teaches a martial arts system that integrates techniques from a variety of ancient and modern disciplines.  By combining major martial arts systems from China, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, and Golden Gloves boxing, Master Bayley teaches students to become complete, well rounded martial athletes – the foundation for a successful cross training regimen in all other sports for youth and adults.   


YOUTH PROGRAM:
Ages five to twelve years old. 

CHARACTER BUILDING IN A COMPLETE ATHLETIC PROGRAM

Mathew Bayley is both a professional educator with over 40 years’ experience and a Grand Master of the Martial Arts, so his youth programs are designed to instill self-esteem, confidence, and self-discipline in the framework of a unique martial arts curriculum.

Master Bayley’s success in developing children’s empowerment and self-protection programs is recognized at the national and state levels.  Awards include a National Certificate of Appreciation from the Girl Scouts of America, Commendation from The National Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse, and a Commendation from the Commissioner of Education for the State of Colorado, 




​​  OTHER  PROGRAMS

PRIVATE LESSONS 

A limited amount of private lesson time is available for serious, mature men and women, who can commit to sixty-four hour of close quarter combat training.  The private lesson curriculum is equal to or exceeds the hand to hand training required of elite special operation troops. In addition to the empty hand training each students becomes skilled in the three major styles of advanced Indonesian and Pilipino knife and stick fighting.  
 
SEMINARS 
The Vail Academy of Martial Arts offers award-winning consulting workshops at your location or ours including Corporate Team Building, Executive Hand to Hand Combat Training, Travel Safety Through Preparation and Awareness, Women's Self-protection, College preparatory empowerment self-protection program for high school senor women 

 Mother/Daughter Safety Program and Children's Safety & Kidnap Prevention. 


 Adult Program

 To be clear, the adult program is not a sports martial art class.                                                  It is an Urban Close Quarter Combat Class.


Master Bayley is certified as a Defensive Tactics Instructor for law enforcement; he has trained with, trained under, and has been the instructor for elite units of every branch of the U.S. military. He developed this class for adults who wish to learn how to protect themselves and their families. 

There is, however, another unique aspect to the adult program:  it is adaptive.  That is, it is designed specifically to minimize athletic injuries that adults may suffer in any kind of sporting endeavor or athletic training.  In martial arts, adults often ask: “Can I learn an aggressive self-defense system without getting hurt?”  Yes indeed, the chances of injury can be greatly reduced with the proper instructor.   

As an example, during Desert Storm, Master Bayley worked with helicopter pilots, instructing them how to defend themselves against multiple attackers if they were shot down behind enemy lines.

A pilot injured in this type of training cannot deploy, so safety in training, even in highly dangerous environments, is paramount.  The Army selected Master Bayley as the instructor for this rigorous training because of his reputation for keeping pilots safe and injury-free. 

If the ability to protect yourself and your family is a skill set you want to acquire, this is the program you  been looking for.
