The Three Month Black Belt Course is really the ultimate in Online Martial Arts training.
The way to do it is to simply watch the videos and do the material on that belt level.
Each level has a form, two man form, applications, and the Matrix.
So you get a partner and do the basics each lesson. You watch a segment of the basics, see my student doing the basics, understand exactly what he is doing, and then do it yourself.
Then you do your two man form, making sure you work on it exactly as I tell you in the video. Check your partner out and have check you out, and make sure you have perfect form by using the drills I give, and by reading written material on the Matrix Karate course.
Do the Two man Forms, back and forth, until you can do them as easily as walking.
Then do the Matrix Forms. These Kata are simple, yet make the connection between form and fighting.
After the forms, do the Matrix. Make sure you don’t bang on the each other too hard in the beginning. Get to the point where you can do the full matrix in 15 minutes or less, and with good control. Sloppy control counts for nothing. Time for the mini-matrixes aren’t important…just make sure you understand the moves and can do them easily without thinking about them.
You have to stop thinking about what you are doing. This is not memorization work, but a logical format which will pull you along.
The important thing is to do it until you remember it without thinking. This should only take a half a dozen or ten times through.
And don’t use too much force, let the force grow.
Finally, do some freestyle. Make sure you do the level of freestyle you are supposed to do, and don’t get ahead and do full freestyle until you are supposed to. Remember, you arelearning, and to break the program will hold back your learning.
Finally, when you can do the material as good or better than my student does it on the last tape, you are there. This doesn’t mean you stop training. On the contrary, you have just started. You will be experiencing intuition and all sorts of things, and you must make sure you keep training, keep learning.
Remember, you have knowledge, but you don’t have experience…you must train hard and overcome this problem.
That’s how you do it, so write me and let me know of your successes.
