we have a new Master Instructor,
A European affiliate is going to be opening site across the pond pretty quick,
and I’ve been working on the website.
Let’s take it all in order.
Congrats to Master Instructor John Newport.
Here is his win…
I have received many of your courses and must say that they have improved my martial arts immeasurably. Future orders for other courses will be coming.
I just completed fully reviewing the Aikido Course and had to send you something to let you know how it impacted my martial arts.
I have designed my own martial art and own a school, Taihei Tatsu Martial Arts. I ran into the problem of content to teach. I knew what I wanted to teach, but did not know in what order to teach it so that students could understand. Your courses solved that problem for me.
Most schools in which I was an assistant taught the same thing. The basic punch, kick, block and a form. Then mixed it up a little. The problem for me was that students did not understand the application so it was monkey see, monkey do karate. I did not want the same format for my system of martial arts.
I do not have a style of martial arts, I have a system. I prefer to regard it as a technology as it adapts to presented situations. Systems create the same result. Styles have flaws. Technology adapts to it’s environment.
Because of matrixing I was able to take my school to a whole new level. Students see how every technique makes sense. The removal of the mystic secrets of martial arts has opened the eyes of students and parents as to what is possible through martial arts.
My students…are able to see the holes in other systems and adapt to exploit those holes. My students understand the positioning of their body and what techniques are effective or ineffective in that position.
Even better I now have the ability to explain and show my students the “why.” I have studied martial arts for just over 33 years. I am a good practitioner and was an average teacher. Because of your courses I am now a great teacher with six year olds as students who can explain the intricate details of techniques.
Next month I will be introducing your Aikido course to my students. I must first clear my own Aikido knowledge of moves that do not work or are ineffective.
Thank you Master Case for making your knowledge available. It is truly an invaluable resource for martial artists. I cannot praise your work enough.

Thank you, John.
And well done.
A couple of things I want people to take note of…
John knew there were problems before he started,
knowing that there is a problem is what makes a man wise,
for it is this knowledge that leads him to a solution.
he has focused on the problem of style v system,
A style tries to take in too much.
A system has specific steps with concrete results.
The term I use for this is ‘Closed Combat System,’
Sounds like John has nailed it.
he has reasons,
real reasons for everything he does,
which makes it a science.
I have nothing but admiration for these Master Instructors.
They are a bright bunch of fellows who get the job done.
The future of the martial arts is in great and capable hands.
I’d like to take advantage of this moment to say
that John is Master Instructor number 50!
Is that a great number,
really made my day.
speaking of which,
let me move along
and admit that
I woke up today grumpy.
And after snarling and snapping a bit,
looking around for a dog to bite,
I began reading my wins.
for whenever you feel a touch of the grump
is look at the good things.
Don’t obsess on the bad things,
they are temporary and go away.
The good things last forever.
Just thought I’d toss that in.
Not that anybody out there ever gets grumpy.
got a fellow name of Peter
working on a website for the United Kingdom.
I tell ya,
There is a tremendous amount of interest in Matrixing over there,
and Peter is sitting on the cusp of Europe.
There is amazing potential over there,
a whole bunch of countries just waiting.
So I will let you know when this happens.
Gonna be great.
been working on the website.
Home page is different,
tweaking it a bit,
and I redid Matrix Karate page.
Cleaned it up,
Put in a bunch of wins
raised the price.
I need to do the Great Matrixing Tour,
need to make it happen.
the price was ridiculous low.
It is still low,
but not ridiculous low.
speaking of the low price,
I’ll give anybody on the newsletter
one week grace.
Order this week,
paypal me $19.95,
and I’ll send you Matrix Karate.
One week only,
then the shock of it all is over,
and you’re on your own,
gonna have to pay full price.
that’s about it,
except that because of Martin King holiday
post offices are closed,
orders go out tomorrow.
have a great day,
practice till you sweat
and love every bit of life.
Have a great work out!
