Born in New York April 17, 1966 the Shidai Shidai Saint Colon Matos living in the most dangerous places in New York began practicing Kung fu at the age of four with the Shidai Shidai Gui of Lung Chuan Fa Kung Fu in New York City. As a child he excelled skillfully in martial arts. At first his teacher only saw a child who liked to jump and fight and incorrigible character. But Master Gui was a very wise and humble man, little by little he gained the trust of that restless child and who asked many questions. His interest in the arts led him to practice six hours every day until he achieved his goals as an athlete and student, little by little. During several years he was in Chinese competitions, which obtained many successes, which filled with pride his teacher who looked after him as his son. He spent eight years of intense practice until he became one of the most important young men of his teacher and was accepted as his disciple.
Despite being twelve years old, he managed to obtain his black(Sifu) rank, which was only a range of disciples and adults. Then by destiny of life he has to move to Puerto Rico with his mother and his brothers to live permanently. After several months of searching, he manages to meet his next master teacher Juan Ferrer with whom he practiced for 7 years, Shen Lung Chuan Fa Kung Fu, while still under his former teacher, and continues his training as a young man until adulthood with his two teachers. After four years of practice he was promoted to the second level of mastery Shifu, being the youngest to hold that rank. During those years in addition to practicing Kung fu he practiced, in free time Tae Kwon Do, boxing, jujitsu. Goju.
In 1984 he began teaching in Mayaguez, thus achieving his beginnings in the path of mastery and the development of his teaching skills. For several years he achieved many successes with his students. He then leaves his school to one of his students to continue his studies at the university and develop his skills and to fulfill what was entrusted to him by his teacher Gui, to become the guardian of his organization and to take care of everything related to the Lung Chuan Fa in Puerto Rico and spread it around the world. From this moment the Shidai Saint was recognized to the rank of Shidai and successor to his teacher, that way his teacher could retire and enjoy the path achieved at the end of his life. From that moment began the development and evolution of the Lung Chuan Fa. For several years he practice Japanese Karate (Gujo Ryu) with Shijan Osvaldo Acosta, Tae Kwon Do with Bill Soporobús and Alberto Morales and several other masters of other systems. After compiling everything necessary I develop an innovative project and presented it to my teacher with the achievements obtained during the years since my last promotion. From that moment Bai Lung Chuan Fa Kung Fu was recognized as a system and the Shidai Saint Colon Matos as the highest ranking teacher and his fourth level (Black Dragon) Shidai Shidai. In this way, with all the documents and blessings of his teacher, Saint Colon began teaching two of his disciples.
After a while he started his second school in the town of Añasco, attracting hundreds of young people and adults from all the towns. From that moment the first project of drug prevention and juvenile delinquency had begun, it was so successful that he opened his third school the following year in the town of Las Marias. During that year there were many successes in the community, then Shidai Shidai Saint decides to join forces with the FKC International Chinese Kung fu Federation and thus achieve its goals and growth. Shidai Shidai Saint Colon realized the problems that women in our society were going through and decided to start the first martial arts project for women only and the first in Puerto Rico with women of all ages. Since its inception Shidai Shidai Saint has managed to help people in the community through martial arts and sports. Currently after 49 years of practice in martial arts, he was recognized as teacher of the year twice and was exalted to the Latin American Hall of Fame. He holds Sibok’s degree in Shaolin Kempo, Senior Master in Lung Chuan Fa. Additional has been recognized with his system and the degree of Sijo or Shidai Shidai(highest degree awarded to the founders in Kung Fu) by several national and international organizations, currently continues to teach in three schools with 200 students, coach of the international Shaolin Warriors team. Only God will say what his course will be and destiny will guide his life. With super-motivated students and more and more people joining the family, it’s remarkable that the martial arts are taking a different course in the future and all is teaching has been for free during his 30+ years of teaching. this is my way of giving back so much blessings. God Bless!
