Where to Find Real Martial Arts Knowledge
Happy spring work out!
It is so beautiful today…PERFECT for a work out!
I once said,
I don’t know if anybody recalls this,
that if you want information
there is a definite sequence of material to consider.
A newspaper provides a headline
a few facts that might or might not have anything to do with anything.
Because a newspaper sells tragedy by screaming it out.
If you want more information,
a magazine works well.
People buy magazines because
the articles are more in depth.
If you want to learn a lot,
read a book.
This is actually pretty obvious stuff.
BUT…have you converted it to the internet?
That sort of media?
Most people watch the TV to get mad.
They listen to the news and walk away pissed off.
The news is just bad gossip,
no real information,
just inflame you
so you’ll tune in tomorrow.
Then there’s the internet.
Blogs and newsletters, oh my.
But the internet is written by boneheads,
for the most part.
People who want to get rich,
or who are easily titillated.
There are a few good sites,
but…lots of crap out there.
But, it is a good way to find out about…videos.
You can order videos,
the equivalent of a book,
and if a picture is worth a thousand words,
a video is worth a million.
let me pick on one bad guy on the internet,
the one bad guy that we all (me included) latch on to.
Here’s the problem with youtube.
People end up not looking for information,
they don’t want to learn,
they want titillation.
They want entertainment.
Here’s the comparison.
When there was no internet,
and people commonly read magazines,
we would pour over those mags.
We would borrow them from friends,
read every word in them,
including the ads,
and even the publication notices on the front page.
It was our only source of information!
We were starved for information!
Now, with the glut of everybody and their cat
showing off their poorly imagined kata,
and techniques that could get you killed,
the replacement for magazines does more harm than good.
People don’t look for information,
they click from vid to vid,
looking for…the latest knock out.
The guy getting hit by the car.
The two girls catfighting.
People, entertained by the net,
have become seduced by the salacious.
They don’t want to learn.
I can’t tell you how many times I have people
who think they know karate,
but really are only enraptured
by the joy of combat.
without thought of learning.
They spend too much time on the net,
bruising their brains with people who don’t know anything,
why do I tell you about this?
Merely so you’ll think about it.
I don’t suppose to change the world,
only a few people who get it.
That’s just the way it is.
So the next time you start searching
for the latest nose-flattening,
kidney squashing knockout…
remember to finish up the night by coming to a site
Think about getting videos that are a couple of hours in content,
with accompanying books,
filled with illustrations,
and the exact method of how to do the martial arts.
You’ll be glad you did.
Real knowledge will make you feel a lot better
than salacious, titillating knock outs.
It will make you a better person,
and last your whole life.
Here’s a link to make you think:
It is the big record of matrix research,
it will tell you how I came up with the science of matrixing.
have a FANTASTIC work out!
