Increasing Intelligence with the Martial Arts
Good sunny morning to ya!
Did you know that every time you work out
you wake up a little bit more?
Physical and mental,
it comes together.
All you have to do is work out.
I read the most interesting stuff the other day.
It was all about the educational process in America,
and it was backed up by a huge book,
showing how the american educational system
has been under attack for nearly 100 years.
what does this have to do with Martial Arts?
How do you measure intelligence?
The school systems say it is how much you can remember.
How many facts you can store in your head.
Not even close.
The real measurement of intelligence
is how fast you can think.
A large database obscures speed of thought.
Besides, the database implanted in you by schools,
is a fake database.
It has nothing to do with reality.
Your real database is how much reality you are aware of,
and the measure of intelligence
is how fast you can deal with the facts of reality.
How fast you come up and implement a solution
when somebody tries to punch you in the face.
That is intelligence.
to be crude about it,
who is going to survive better?
A fellow with a large and cumbersome database
artificially implanted by the school system,
that doesn’t deal with reality?
Or a fellow who is aware of his surroundings,
and can deal with anything that happens
in quick time?
so that brings us to the martial arts.
There is no better method
for making a person aware of his surroundings,
than the martial arts.
There is no superior method
for learning how to have a high IQ,
than by making the lightening quick decisions
that go along with handling a punch to the face.
If you talk to people who are successful,
you will find a higher percentage of people
who studied martial arts.
They are more intelligent.
there are drawbacks.
if you are learning to fight,
but not control yourself,
it doesn’t work.
You get beat up,
and can even damage your database.
You might end up smart,
but you’re also stupid.
Decisions are tainted,
that sort of thing.
if you are not learning forms,
and learning how to make them work
then you aren’t really getting smarter.
Because they are artificial databases
that have to do with how fast and accurately
one moves their body.
That relates directly to reality.
I remember the first time I learned a form.
It was a really simple thing,
but it took me a couple of weeks to learn the whole thing
and then I kept forgetting it.
a few years later,
the last form I learned for Black Belt,
a sizable form called Botsai,
I learned it in one setting.
And I could do the form,
and I didn’t forget it.
So my intelligence went up
because of all the sweat I put into the martial arts.
And the intelligence was directly connected
here’s something interesting,
right after that I lost my reaction time,
and there is no faster thought than intuitive.
intuition opens the door
to seeing when things are going to happen
before they happen!
And it was all because of learning forms.
there are faster ways,
the method I learned by was severely flawed.
The Matrix Karate forms,
because they are logical,
a beginner can do in a lesson or two.
He doesn’t have to keep learning,
struggling to remember,
he can do them,
he won’t forget,
and they are directly related to reality.
And I recommend Matrix Karate
before you learn classical karate.
if you already know Karate,
if you have learned a classical system,
then Matrix Karate will fill in the blanks,
and enhance your classical studies,
so that they make more sense than you dreamed existed.
The logic of Matrixing
will align the classical so it is logical.
talk about super accelerated,
extreme and advanced
if you don’t have Matrix Karate,
And if you have Matrix Karate,
then get Temple Karate
for a very pure classical system.
Both are available at Monster Martial Arts.
the fact of the matter is that modern educational systems
are designed to make factory workers.
People who learn martial arts are smarter,
and they usually end up being in charge of the factory.
Here are the links for Matrix Karate
and Temple Karate.
Have a great work out!
