The Formula for Power in the Martial Arts!

Good morning!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I thought you might like to look at

formulas in the martial arts today.

This is actually pretty hefty stuff,

and you might want to have a dictionary at hand,

especially when I talk about things like

mass, energy, and other physics terms.

First,

energy is the capacity for work.

Work is the amount of weight lifted.

So the deeper the stance,

the more weight your muscles feel.

The more weight you feel,

the harder you work.

The harder you work,

the stronger you get.

This strength is channeled to the tan tien

and then to the rest of the body.

Second,

when practicing,

I move slow.

Moving slowly increases the amount of time

I am lifting the weight of my body.

Thus, I am lifting more,

thus, I am getting stronger.

Third,

when doing forms,

I use dynamic tension.

Dynamic tension is when you use

muscles against muscles,

and even

muscles against themselves.

Fourth,

when doing applications

I increase speed,

because 

speed times mass increases the mass.

100 pounds of punch at one second

becomes 200 pounds of punch at 2 seconds.

And so on.

Fifth,

I try to make sure my body is properly aligned.

This creates a connection from the fist to the planet,

or the technique to the planet,

so when I hit somebody,

it actually feels like I am hitting them with the planet.

And when I get hit,

it feels like they are hitting the planet.

Sixth,

I try to use CBM

‘Coordinated Body Motion,’

all body parts move at the same time

starting at the same time

ending at the same time,

contributing appropriate to their

size, mass, angle, and so on.

Seventh,

I try to CBM all the formulas.

Putting them together when appropriate,

focusing on specific formulas when appropriate,

and so on.

And,

of course,

I practice all the time.

The more I practice

the more these formulas and concepts work.

So that’s it.

Oh,

there are lots of other formulas in Matrixing.

But these are pretty specific to action and movement.

And they should help you

when you analyze what you are doing and why.

They should really make your art POP!

Now,

here’s the thing…

I learned the first formula from doing Karate

I learned the second formula from doing Tai Chi Chuan.

I learned the third formula from doing Pan Gai Noon.

I learned the fourth formula from Karate.

And so on.

So you have to study a lot of different arts

to get all this.

You know what?

Evolution of an Art has three arts on it.

Pan Gai Noon

Kang Duk Won

Kwon Bup

It’s a good place to start.

The price of a night on the town

and it will feed your mind and spirit for years.

It will certainly help you make serious inroads

into the formulas I listed here.

Now,

go get your mommy some flowers!

And have a great work out!
