The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

In the first two articles
we have discussed why
the native American Indian
was the best light infantry in the world.
This included a discussion of their hunting prowess,
and their devotion to silence,
all of which combined to make truly great silent warriors.

In this part I want to discuss

To begin,
for most people
walking is a process of unbalancing.
people are standing like clumps, and to begin moving,
they unbalance their body
and fall in a direction.
Stick out a foot,
unbalance themselves,
fall in a direction.
I can’t even begin to tell you how inefficient this is.

At rest you should be able to move in any direction,
and without the need for unbalancing your body.

consider how the Indians were raised.
The woman cared for the child until the age of six.
At six the brave took over.
The child was trained to be totally and utterly silent,
and to move with extreme awareness.
Punishment for transgression in this fields was simple:
go hungry.
If the child didn’t master the skills,
then he didn’t bring home the meat,
and he went hungry.
And the family went hungry.
No excuses.
This attitude went towards hunting,
which was the main duty of the warrior,
and which led directly to combat.
No excuses.
You learned to use a knife the right way,
or you went hungry,
Harsh methods,
but they resulted in amazing warriors.

Here’s something that many people don’t understand.
The white man didn’t beat the Indians.
He infected him with disease.
It’s true.
The Indian had no defense for this kind of ‘germ warfare,’
and he eventually succumbed.
He didn’t lose in battle
so much as die out from disease.

that all said,
I liken the Indian hunting techniques to Tai Chi Chuan.
To sneak up on a wild animal
you had to move so slowly,
as slowly as the wind moved a tree branch.
You had to blend with the motion of nature.

You had to have a strong body to support this slow motion.
And you had to stand in a manner
in which you were still capable
at any moment,
of moving in any direction
as if sprung from a spring.
Not falling uncontrolled,
but legs loaded and ready to shove off,
in any direction.

if you want to move with total silence,
and yet be so balanced
that you can move in any direction
without the need to unbalance yourself
and fall uncontrolled,

Indian Silence, Zen and Tai Chi Chuan

Newsletter 834 ~ Subscribe now!

Were the Indians Masters of Their Own Brand of Zen?
part two

What a GREAT day!
Of course,
if you don’t work out,
you probably don’t really know what I mean.

This is the second of a five parts series.
Subscribe to this newsletter to get all five parts.

Last newsletter I made the point
that the American Indian
was probably the finest warrior in the world.
To back this up,
simply consider their attitude towards that great zen concept…

In zen you create a silence so absolute
that your spirit can manifest,
that the truth of you becomes apparent.

Indians had this zen attitude towards silence.

The mere fact of walking,
as described in the first part of this series,
can be used to create silence.
But that is only the first stage.
Perhaps some of you remember an old adage
that only fools whistle?
A bit harsh,
a happy person should whistle,
but when you are hunting game,
or sneaking up to a battle,
you can’t whistle.

you have to master the sounds of nature,
the tweet of a bird,
the call of a wolf,
the actual sound of shifting sand,
or wind in the rushes.

To master such sounds requires an appreciation of silence itself.

Consider this bit of zen:
it is not the sound you must hear,
but the silence.

as I am fond of telling students,
a candle in a coal mine
is brighter than the sun at noon.

Consider this when you are doing Tai Chi,
and don’t make a sound.

Consider this in Aikido,
and don’t let your circles make a sound.

Consider this in Karate,
or Tai Chi,
or other arts,
and quell the sound of your motion,
of your technique,
it is not just wasted energy,
but it distracts the mind
from the silence necessary
to manifest the spirit.

Here’s a link to Tai Chi,
which is a great art for pursuing silence.

American Indians and Pa Kua Chang

Pa Kua Chang and Indian Stealth Skills!
part one

Good evening!
I just finished teaching,
2 1/2 hours of bliss,
and I am in heaven.
Let me share a little of that heaven with you.
Here’s one of the things I was thinking about,
which relates to the martial arts.
how Pa Kua Chang relates to the stealth skills
of the native American Indians.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

I am going to write five articles on this subject,
so if you want all five,
subscribe to the newsletter.
The other four articles will be coming out over the next month.

The American Indians were arguably
the greatest light infantry in the world.
They could outrun horses,
they had thoroughly mastered such weapons as
bows and arrows, knives, hand to hand, and so on.
And, they were masters of stealth.

Think about this:
to put food on their table
they had to be able to sneak up on wild animals.
This meant they walked with no noise,
don’t rustle a leaf,
or step on a twig.
Do it so well that a deer won’t hear you.
Have you ever seen how big a deer’s ears are?

The way they walked was very specific.
They did not walk heel to toe,
they did not place their heel down first,
the placed the front of their foot down first,
so they could feel a twig,
or any other surface that was going to cause noise
sufficient to alert an animal.
So they placed the front of the foot down first,
then rolled to the heel,
and they were aware,
feeling with their feet,
sensitive to whatever they were walking on.
And they walked fast enough to close on an animal
before the animal went elsewhere to feed,
and without alarming the animal.
That takes incredible skill.

this method of walking is very similar to the way
students of Pa Kua Chang walk.
The precise way of walking in Pa Kua Chang
is to place the whole foot down,
sensing the ground through the feet.
This eliminates slippage on icy, grassy, wet whatever surfaces.
it breeds silence.
it enables the student to grip the ground.

This method of walking
is commonly called ‘Mud Walking.’
Walk so you won’t slip in mud.
Walk silently,
with no wasted (as in audible) energy.

There are differences here,
but here is the point:
both methods are used to build awareness.

It is awareness that makes a better martial artist,
not muscles,
not speed,
not anything else.
It is awareness,
of environment,
of the opponent,
of whatever is going on around you.

It’s funny,
when I hear people refer to Indians as savages
I have to suppress laughter.
They adapted to their environment,
they built a technology
that made them possibly the finest warriors in the world.

If you just study them,
if you consider how you might use their methods,
how you might improve your awareness,
you will find that they were geniuses of combat.

let’s be honest,
I haven’t studied Indian combat methods in depth,
but I have studied methods that closely align.
Here’s the link to Pa Kua Chang.

Think about what I’ve said here,
and then bury yourself in some Pa Kua,
it will be well worth the journey.

Stay tuned for four more articles
concerning the martial arts
and the stealth abilities of the American Indian.

and have a great work out!

A Different Martial Arts Learning Curve

Newsletter 832

Martial Arts Learning Curve!

Happy fall work out!
Cooler weather,
hotter work outs

yoga martial arts style

Click on the cover!

did you know there is a learning curve to the martial arts?
Of course there is.
There is a learning curve to everything.
And the curve can be sharp,
low and slow,
wiggly waggly here and there.
But here are two things that your mommy never told you, and a different way of looking at the learning curve inherent in mankind.

most people don’t want to learn.
They know there is a curve,
but they don’t want to apply it to themselves.
They are satisfied
accepting what some so-called authority tells them,
and they never look at what they are really doing.
They work out and don’t think.
Mindless exercise.

and this somewhat extrapolates on the first point,
and shows what the scale of learning in the martial arts actually look like.

At the bottom we have the people who want to fight.
They just like the freestyle,
the reality,
they are often quite vocal
always backing up opinion with the offer
to prove what they say with their fists.

Near the bottom we have the physical cultists.
They work out to get a good body,
maybe impress people.
No thought of what the martial arts does for mind/spirit

In the middle we get most people.
They talk about chi,
and research what has gone before,
but they don’t look into the future,
they are not scientific about what they do.

Above the middle we get dedicated artists.
These are people who sense what is going on,
and are pushing themselves forward,
and making inroads as to what
the martial arts are really all about.

At the top you get the matrixed martial artists.
These are people who realize
that there is a truth behind the martial arts,
And that there is a scientific way of getting to that truth.

To sum up this learning curve
and the people embedded in it…

image and symbolism
pseudo intelligent but bad data
dedicated artists attempting to rise above
logic and science as a method

that all said,
here are a few examples.

At the bottom are the people who want to dominate.
Who inhabit chat rooms only to put down,
who insist that arguments can only solved
by fighting.

Above the bottom
are the idiots who listen to the dominators
and actually believe them.
These guys are mindless drones,
wanna be dominators,
on their way down,
but not there yet.

In the middle are people,
people like you and me,
but with one large problem.
Their data is wrong.
No matter how hard they work out,
they are cursed.
they accept methods that,
even if efficient,
are so couched in ancient terms
that they are near useless.
They learn Japanese
because you can’t understand Karate unless you speak Japanese.
They meditate
without any idea of what meditation is.
They are firmly ensnared by the classical,
and have never picked up a dictionary,
or done anything to translate the mass they are stuck in.

Above the middle are people
who have felt the energy,
who are exploring concepts,
who are trying to resolve the mass of unordered data
that is the martial arts.
I can’t tell you how many of these people have written me,
are aware that matrixing has given them the final order,
has propelled them,
has uplifted them.

At the top we have you,
the matrixer.
The fellow who has seen the order of the martial arts,
has experienced the logic,
who has started to speed up,
has seen the sure and steady path
into the real ability of the martial arts.

where you?
I know not only do matrixes read my stuff,
but sometimes others,
low and almost low,
sometimes looking and sometimes not,
read things i’ve written.
So where are you?

Are you stuck on the downward path?
Trying to dominate others?
Or are you on the upward path,
finding the real education in the martial arts,
opening up your abilities
as quickly as you can?

Here’s the most important link a martial artist can ever find.

The Actual Logic Behind the Martial Arts

Newsletter 830

Martial Arts More than a Gimmick

martial arts system

A complete Martial Arts System! ~ Click on the cover!

Happy Heat Wave!
Happy Work out!
The only way to beat the heat
is to work out,
get so hot
that reality is cool.
It’s true.

I remember when scientists
tested Koichi Tohei
and he sped up and slowed down his heart.
Just sat there and thought about it,
and the scientist couldn’t believe their instruments.

So why not convince yourself it’s cool?

Let’s talk about matrixing.

I often say I invented matrixing,
but the truth is
I stumbled across it.
Another way of saying it is
I made so many mistakes,
there was nothing left
but the right way.

I used a truth table
out of Boolean algebra.
Lot of fun.
Lot of work.
Made everything fit.
Analyzed motion
until there was logic.

But you won’t see all the hoops I jumped through
when you order a course.
The martial arts are separated in specific geometries.
So you just order a course,
and the data is perfectly laid out,
and you go through a few arts,
and you have it.
All the geometries.

I have provided a few records of what I did.
One record,
for instance,
‘Matrixing: The Master Text.’

This shows a few of the matrixes I drew,
and you can see the exact progression of steps I took.

if you want the absolutely nut
that grew the mighty oak,
you have to read Neutronics.
Philosophy, you see.

And here is where it really all came from.

One day I was sitting in my back yard,
tapping a piece of rebar on the cement,
Ting, ting, ting.
it was like a giant gong went off.
I could see all reality.
I understood reality,
and a simple phrase jumped into my head.

‘For something to be true,
the opposite must also be true.’

That was it.
From that simple realization
and verbalization,
I grew neutronics,
which manifested in Matrixing.
But you would have to read
some books on Neutronics
to understand that process.

the reason I tell you all this
is that there’s a lot of newbies to the newsletter.
And I know I’ve sort of said it in a quick nutshell,
but they need to understand
that there is more to this stuff than a gimmick.

When somebody says,
that Al Case,
he’s a quack…’

Ask if they’ve read the testimonials at

When somebody says it’s a trick,
‘you can’t learn the martial arts that fast,’
Ask if they’ve ever seen me take a guy to black belt.
I do it in three months,
and the thing was recorded on
The Three Month Black Belt Course

And so on.
only believe your own eyes and ears.
Make your own decision.
If a guy says I am junk,
and he has never done my courses,
you better think about whether you should listen to him.

I’ve got 50 years experience,
I’ve written dozens of books
and produced many video courses.

All the proof is here.
You just have to want the truth.

It’s Quick and Easy…if you are willing to learn.

Okey dokey,
enough for you newbies.
Hope I’ve enlightened,
and not frightened.

I’m going to write about
in the next newsletter or two.
That’s a whole mother trip.

You guys and gals…

have a great work out!

Where do you Focus the Eyes When Fighting?

Newsletter 828

Where Do You Look During Combat

Happy Tuesday!
It’s great for a work out!

martial arts system

A complete Martial Arts System! ~ Click on the cover!

one of the biggest,
most frequent questions I get,
when I’m teaching,
is where do you look
when you are free styling.

and this is really bad,
I get kids who freestyle
while unconscious.

Would you like to fight while unconscious?

Let me explain.
If you were in the middle of a street
and a car came barreling towards you,
would you look at the car?
Or would you look at the driver?

Kids and beginners always say,
‘I’d look at the car.’
I make the noise of somebody being smunched,
run over by a car.

Here’s the thing,
the car has no mind.
It is a piece of metal and machinery.
The car has no direction,
except that which is fed into it by the driver.
So you look at the driver.
You look at the person behind the wheel,
you read his intentions.

Read his intentions.
A car has no intention.
Only a human being has intention.

So you must look at the driver of the car.

that means,
when you are fighting,
you must look at the eyes.

The eyes are the windows to a man’s soul.

Look at the eyes,
and you can see the intention.
You can see the thoughts.
You can see the intention.

Not at first.
At first you see eyes.
You see flesh and tissue.
with practice,
with dedicated dedication,
you will,
at last,
see the thought behind the body.
The spirit behind the flesh.
The ‘I am’ directing the action.

I know,
I’ve heard all the theories,
even been told to do them,
and even believed them for a while.
Look at the chest.
Use peripheral vision.
See the whole body by unfocusing.
But you’re still looking at the vehicle,
and not seeing who’s driving.

even without eyes,
you’ll start to perceive
things happening,
but it will be slow and faulty.

Who do you think is looking through those eyes?

Here’s the funny thing,
I was teaching a kid the other day,
and I made him look at me,
really look at me,
the ‘I am,’
and not the body,
and he broke down.
Went into the giggling hysterics.
Couldn’t look at me.

When I was a child and in trouble,
parents lecturing me,
I’d look down,
and immediately got the:
‘Look at me when I’m talking to you!’
They didn’t want me going unconscious.
I had to stay there and take my punishment.
Funny thing,
after a little of that,
I didn’t want to get in trouble.
It was just too hard looking them in the eyes.

This video clip is how you use the blinding steel material…

So that’s the key,
it will help your martial arts tremendously,
it will help your matrixing fantastically.
here’s something simple,
if you can’t look at it,
you can’t fight it.
And that means you can’t fight.

Because if you’re not looking,
then you’re unconscious.

Okey dokey.
Thanks to all who have purchased
Tiger and Butterfly Martial Arts,
it’s on Amazon.

the system I do,
right after Tiger and Butterfly
is the Blinding Steel course.

In otherwords,
I teach the hard stuff with the Tiger/Butterfly,
then I do the weapons,
which is Monkey Boxing,
then I finally go through the Matrix Kung Fu.

Funny when you look at it that way,
goes to show how advanced some of those
four original matrixing courses are.

The Best Three Martial Arts Forms

Newsletter 827

Which Three Martial Arts Forms Should You Study?

Again, thanks to all
who have purchased the
Tiger and Butterfly Martial Arts System.
It’s available on Amazon.

martial arts system

A complete Martial Arts System! ~ Click on the cover!

got an interesting email.
The question was,
If I could only study three forms,
which three forms would you recommend?

Quite interesting.
I mean,
I’m always telling everybody
study as much as you can,
there’s no end to knowledge,
learn as many arts as you can.

if you could only study three forms…?

I recommended

Those are out of the Pan Gai Noon course.

Why would I recommend those?
Because those three forms
focus on grounding,
and dedicated hand motion.
All three forms teach one how to move in any direction,
and yet keep your ground,
and use that ground in your hand techniques.
There is a tremendous swirl of energy
up the body in those three forms.
the energy is easily manifest in the hands,
and the hands,
almost perfectly fit the ‘slap-grab’ concepts
which are outlined in Binary Matrixing.

This is not to say the forms of classical Karate aren’t good,
they are,
but they are ten,
and the request was for three.

this doesn’t mean Shaolin isn’t good,
but Shaolin spreads out over a number of concepts.

why not Matrixing?
There are three forms in Matrixing?
Because the purpose of matrixing
is to put logic in the martial arts.
What good is all that knowledge
if you can’t apply it to a variety of martial arts,
to more than three forms?

So I was sort of caught,
hoist with my own petard,
I believe it is called.
I wanted to say matrixing more than anything,
but if you only had three forms,
then those are the three.
They give more internal energy,
contain more face to face,
hand to hand combat.

I can’t resist,
I would recommend the iron horse
(kima shodan/tekki 1)
as a fourth form.
Just because it causes
oodles and oodles of pure energy.

that all said,
the reason the question was so good,
so appropriate,
was because when I write a book
I always think it is the best.
You have to, or why write?
So I think a book is the best,
but it may or may not be,
I have to wait to see what people say.

And the idea that one could study only three forms,
aligned with my purpose
in the Tiger/Butterfly book.
My purpose,
as always,
is to put together
a better martial arts system.
Each time I sit down to write,
I am thinking,
how can I make this better,
how can I formulate what I’ve done,
into better and better art.

How can I give people the purest information
to cause them the quickest progress,
and the most profound experience
in the martial arts.

So if the question had been,
what seven forms,
then I would have rejoiced mightily.

three forms.
What a question.
You guys feel free to consider your choices.
