Speaking of military martial arts, here’s my newsletter speaking of this intriguing subject.
I remember when I was young and doing martial arts,
I lived in apartments
with guys filled with testosterone
and we punched each other all the time.
Cooking the eggs and throwing out blocks.
Kicking somebody so he had to drop the towel
when he came out of the shower,
just fun, fun, fun.
But that’s how you know
you’re doing the real martial arts.
Speaking of which,
let’s talk about the real martial arts.
The universe is just a bunch of stuff
flying through space.
Sometimes something flies at you
and you have to handle it
before collision occurs.
Isn’t that what the martial arts are?
Fists and feet,
whole bodies flying,
coming at you,
and you have to handle them
So when you are doing the martial arts
you are just practicing
how to handle the whole universe.
That’s why martial artists are superior,
While Joe Blow sits on the sofa
and watches reruns of Happy Days
Jim the Martial Artist
is practicing handling
the whole darned universe
one fist at a time.
Jim the martial artist gets so good,
that he can handle anything in the universe,
he is calm,
and in charge.
No wonder the martial arts are fun.
I didn’t mean to go all philosophical on you.
It’s just that
a fist to the face
is so beautiful
that it brings a tear to my eye.
I received the greatest win.
I love wins
that come out of the blue,
they blind side me.
I’ll be running full tilt,
trying to get the job done
Big old win
knocks me sideways,
You can see why I love this win.
I love a compliment,
I really love a compliment to the matrixing method.
Thank you, Dan,
for those kind words.
Thanks to you and the guys and gals
for being America’s muscle.
one of the things I look for
is people from different systems.
I am always saying
that Matrixing works
for every system.
While I have presented it as a martial art,
and shown it working in a variety of martial arts,
it is really a method for organizing data.
Doesn’t matter where the data comes from,
all that matters is that it is put in order.
here’s something for you to think about.
What if you took a soldier
matrixed his training,
matrixed his way of operating on the battlefield.
This would be a quite an undertaking,
because the modern soldier
is more than a march and shoot boy,
he is a technical wizard
with a variety of disciplines to use
before he gets to march and shoot.
the question remains,
what if you matrixed him?
he goes into battle
and he will know what his teammate is doing,
will have an intuition about it,
even if he can’t directly see or communicate.
He will be working off the same data base of knowledge,
a streamlined and simplified data base,
and he will know what his team mate is doing,
how he is responding,
just from the sounds,
just from the knowledge of where the bombs are dropping,
and the lines of fire.
He will know
and he will know how his team mate will respond,
and he can adjust his actions
so that he
and everybody in his squad,
and even company
are totally in synch.
that would sure make a sergeant’s job easy.
just thought I’d throw that out.
A lot of orders have gone to men and women
in the military,
and I sometimes think about
what would happen
in a matrixed world.
next week is thanksgiving,
so I need you to
break out the ax,
throw a rope over one of those turkeys
and get ready for
the yearly turkey slaughter.
Never thought of it that way, eh?
But it’s true.
It’s us against them!
Who will win…
read blooded ‘muricans,
or them thar turkey busturds!
I think we know the answer.
throw another log on the barbie
make sure you have lots of adult beverages
and someplace to hide the keys
until you sober up.
I just thought I’d put out a public service announcement, okay?
while you are thinking and drinking,
think about this:
if you ordered Matrix Karate,
or any matrix course from Monster,
you could have it in time
so you could practice it over the holidays!
Think about it,
lock yourself in a room
with a DVD player
and a change of underwear,
and you could learn a whole art!
You think you can’t?
That was one of the things I did with a fellow
when I was first discovering matrixing.
We locked ourselves in the dojo for a week,
and we worked out,
and a week later…
he knew Karate.
And he eventually became a third dan
in a Japanese system.
Just walked in their door,
freestyled their boys,
and received his belt.
put your order in now,
change your life,
handle the universe,
learn an art over the holidays.
what’s the alternative?
Reruns of Happy Days?
You guys and gals have a great weekend,
and I’ll talk to you next Monday.

“So the important thing in a military operation is victory, not persistence.”
~ Sun Tzu
That’s what Sun Tzu, the greatest military mind in history, thought of when he thought of military martial arts.
