Matt Coleman:

To be the beast, you must free the beast within. It's a mantra. It's a mentality. It's a lifestyle that's engrained in my soul. From the minute my alarm sounds at six AM till the moment my skull hits the pillow at one in the morning, I transform into the beast. I am constantly charging forward and attacking life at full speed. There's no other way to live.

I spend the morning doing construction. It allows me to support my family. In the afternoons, I'm teaching combat and self-defense to a growing legion of students. It empowers my community. And as for the night, I stay after hours in the gym and train for upcoming fights because I'm hellbent on conquering my dreams. But, to me, fighting is more than a road to meeting a goal or dream.

My brother passed away eight years ago. He was special needs, and was trapped in a house burned to death. That nearly crippled me and, really, the martial arts were the only outlet where I could unleash that anger, frustration and despair. Somewhere, along the way, I fell in love with it and I began to dream of a new dream to be a fighter and run a successful gym and now, with a special needs child of my own, a family to support and a community behind me, I am determined to show everyone that dreams can, and do, come true.

If you're not living your life to the fullest, then you're robbing yourself from the potential and I refuse to waste my potential. Time is short, and, for me, there's no other way to live. Be the beast. I am the beast.
