Matthew Ahmet (born 1988) is a London-born practitioner of Shaolin Kung Fu who is best known as the coach for Shaolin Temple's "Wheel of Life" in Superstars of Dance.[2] Ahmet is the only non-Chinese disciple of the Shaolin Temple to perform alongside the Shaolin Wheel of life show.[3] In 2009, Ahmet set up the Shaolin Temple Cheshunt home to the Shaolin Warriors London[citation needed] who performed as Team Shaolin in the fourth series of Britain's Got Talent[4] and were eliminated in the semi-final.

Ahmet is of Turkish descent. In late 2010, it was announced that he would have a reality show that was set to be broadcast in early 2011.[5]

Ahmet's dedication and approach to life is based on a fundamental principle that with focus and positivity anyone can make a change to their life. With this in mind, he works with people of all ages, providing spiritual guidance and motivation. He is becoming a sought after keynote speaker and recently presented the keynote speech at The Guild of Letting & Management's annual conference.[citation needed]
