The Source of Matrixing
The sun is shining
and it is THE day for working out!
Think I’ll start with Yogata,
then the warm ups from Tong Bei
I’m going to work on blending the Tong Bei
into Monkey Boxing.
Gonna be fun.
The Bruce Lee Book is out
check it out here…
I’m still playing with the title.
I can’t find something that I like,
that sums it up,
so I put it up for a few days
and I’m thinking of changing it again.
But the title doesn’t mean much,
it is the matrixing and analysis inside,
that stays the same.
So I’ll keep you updated.
here’s a great win I thought I’d share…
Hey Al, I just wanted to give you an update on my progress and of course to say hello. I have been spending a lot of time going over your material DVD’s. At least five years and every time I go through the Matrix Karate material, I always get a another peace of knowledge. Even though I have read the same sentence a thousand times. I do have just about all of your courses, missing just on or two. Matrix Karate is really the core, it is where the knowledge of the physics, concerning the martial arts, can be understood and where you can really experiment with your own structure. It enables you to move so fluidly from technique to technique effortlessly. As a matter of fact, there was a time when I would do the Matrix form one and then slip into form three. At first, I thought it was my Awareness slipping into unAwareness, I have also been studying Neutronics as well. But, something interesting happened, even while maintaining the focus, I found that I had purposely slipped into form three. There was something during the accidents, that felt as if the energy had intention. Since I was focusing my intention, I realized I had slipped into the energy flow. Now, what came of this, was understanding the motion through space and that, at that time my intention was directed towards the thought of effortlessness, enabling me to find the energy that emanates from me and flow along those intentions.. That was two years ago and I have sense continued on with my studies and have gone thru KDW and Butterfly. Love the Blinding Steel course. I am currently working thru Pa Kua, enjoying it tremendously.
Well, I have yaked enough. I just wanted to give an update and to say thank you, really. Your teachings have improved many aspects of my life. A humble bow Master Founder.
Thank you, Michael,
and a humble bow to you.
The is to delve deep enough to understand
martial arts as a manifestation of energy.
Not blocks and counters,
not how fast you can beat up somebody,
the energy you manifest as an artist.
now that Michael has brought it up,
it is called Matrix Karate for a reason.
Do you know what a matrix is?
It is a mathematical grid.
Most people don’t know where on the grid they are.
So they don’t tap into any of the energy they truly possess,
they just do blocks and punches,
get all excited as they skim the surface of their potential.
But that is all they are doing,
skimming the surface.
Once you matrix,
once you locate yourself on the ‘grid,’
so to speak,
You start to understand the rest of the grid,
and then you start to slip from move to move intuitively.
Logic has made that intuitive.
And the matrix,
that I am speaking about is not
a physical chessboard you are standing on,
it is the visualization of potentials unleashed.
Matrixing is a logic which reveals all your potentials
and allows you, pushes you, into intuitivity.
It is different than anything else.
Sometimes it is subtle,
sometimes it is lightening in a bottle,
but it constantly and consistently changes you,
because it keeps uncovering new potentials.
As I said in the original ads…
If I gave you 3, 6, w, watermelon, and 8,
how long would it take you to count to ten?
But if I gave you 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,
how long would it take you to count to ten?
And that is what Matrixing does,
it provides the logical structure,
puts the martial arts in the proper order,
and then you can’t not count to ten,
and then you can’t stop yourself
from finding new ways to use
the ‘numbers’ of the martial arts.
Which is to say the basics and technqiues,
making new forms,
and all sorts of other stuff
that is obscured by the classical method.
And the start is in Matrix Karate.
That is the crucial course.
So go read the page on it…
I thank you Michael,
for setting such a great example,
for being dedicated,
for sticking with it.
And for everybody…
have yourself a great work out!
