Matt L. Flanary, GM
8th Dan Black Belt
Founder and Master of Bin Son Jeontu, Matt Flanary began studying martial arts in 1982. His training soon included several different traditional arts that were combined and taught to law enforcement agencies, and soon after expanded to the general public as one style. His teachings focus primarily on quick and effective techniques for real life situations.
In 2013 Master Flanary was officially recognized as the founding father of Bin Son Jeontu, giving him the authority to set the footprint for his art. Given the ability to claim his style as a martial art he now ranks his students as their training progresses.
Master Flanary's primary goal is to teach others the skills that he has learned over the years so that they may better protect themselves. Being prepared in a bad situation is the key.

As a martial artist and instructor, Miss Hannah is great at what she does. She has been a true blessing to our students and our school.
