Matrix Martial Arts puts Science into Art
Matrix Martial Arts is not based on the movie called The Matrix, but on a form of computer science. It is based on Boolean Algebra, which puts 3D programs on to 2D screens (computers, TV, etc.)
That it works is proven by the 100s of pages of martial arts testimonials I have received. These were not solicited by me, but just came in. They came from people with no experience to dozens of years of experience. They came from people who studied karate, learned Shaolin, practiced Kenpo, and just about every other martial art under the sun. It is not unusual for me to receive a win from some fellow with 25 years experience, an instructor, who has practiced Hapkido, Silat, Pa Kua Chang, and so on and so on and so on.
Here are a few of the testimonials I have received over the years:
There I was, doing a form, I was glowing and I had a certainty: I knew I was a Master. I knew I could be victorious in a fight but that I would never have to fight–my glow would melt any attempt to create a conflict. ~ Herb S
Herb was one of my early students, from back in the 1980s.
…my perception and awareness of my own body from the feet, legs, arms, etc., have gone up tremendously. The attention to detail seems never ending when studying and teaching. The ability to catch each detail, at the right time, is an important item to grasp if you want your student to really get what you’re teaching them.
Wiley took one of the first Master Instructor Courses I ever offered. The following win is a little lengthy, but it shows what YOU can do if you have the information.
First off, I would have to give you a little back history so you can fully appreciate where it is that I’m coming from. When I was about five, I started off learning Nagano Ryu from my father, who learned it from his uncle, who in turn learned it from his father, and so on. There wasn’t much too it – it was basically a garbled version of the 40 Monkeys, with some Judo basics, and no forms. [It turns out that this system is actually an ancient form of Ninjutsu that is no longer in existence today!] The main thing that I took away from this early training however was something that my father kept telling me, which was: “Practice one thing a thousand times and you will finally understand it. Practice it ten thousand times and you will be a master.” After about a hundred times of being thrown to the ground I got the picture. But, I also got the “bug.” I fell in love with the art, and have ever since been in the process of trying to become that master.
I spent my teen years learning Karate from an old Okinawan dude, and a sensei that wouldn’t give me my black belt until I could beat up every brown belt in the school. I learned countless forms, but barely any basics. After getting my black belt, I started fighting in semi-professional kick boxing matches. However, I eventually got beaten by a little Thai kid, and realized that all my years of karate training had little actual use in a real fight. So, I moved on to Muay Thai, and then Brazilian Jujutsu, and soon found myself gladiating in an octagon. Needless to say, those were the dark years of my art. (Though, I did learn some valuable up-close and personal lessons about what a real punch looks like and what it feels like to get your ass kicked!)
It took a real butt-kickin’ before I came to terms with the fact that I wasn’t going to become a true master through combat alone. So, I fell back on my previous training and started doing forms again. I decided that I would approach them from the viewpoint of how to make them actually work. After a while, I started to realize that the Old Masters just might have had something. A while longer and I re-kindled my purpose to resolve the martial arts puzzle and become that master that I always wanted to be. That’s right about when I met a guy at a party (Harry) who told me about this guy “Al” who supposedly already did just that. I was intrigued. I ordered some manuals and started pouring over them. I was so incredibly appreciative that somebody had already spent so much time researching and laying the path to a goal that I thought was going to take me a lifetime (maybe several.) My art expanded and I reached a whole new level.
Then I did the Master Instructor Course and it hit me. The Basics that are so concisely communicated in this course including the Matrix principle IS the solution. It doesn’t matter what “style” I call my art, because all styles follow these same principles. It doesn’t matter how hard I train or how many repetitions I do if I don’t train the right way. And I would never become a master if I didn’t know how it all fits together. Now I do! I can honestly say that I am now on the path that I have always sought as a martial artist. Thank you Al!
These wins are just the tip of the iceberg, and a good thing to do would be to go to the Testimonials page at Monster Martial Arts and do a search on your particular art. It might just pop up, and it might give you some ideas of what I’m doing and how this Matrix Martial Arts thing works.
