The True Path of the Martial Arts


In the next couple of months 

I’m going to be rewriting the website.

There are a lot of reasons for this.

I basically built Monster Martial Arts

as I progressed as a person.

This resulted in a specific path.

A True Way.

A method that works,

ties all the martial arts together,

and gets the student there FAST.

Unfortunately,

I was just plugging in stuff as I did it.

No rhyme or reason,

just putting it up 

and moving along

as fast as I could.

The result is that Monster,

while enlightening,

doesn’t present the path as I envision it.

So I’m going to fix that.

Following is a graphic that I will use

to restructure the website,

and present the art in the correct order.

Now,

the way this works is simple.

The boxes on the left side

are the arts in order.

The boxes in the middle are the courses 

specific to the arts.

Obviously,

you would simply do the arts

as I have listed them in the middle boxes.

The box on the right

are supplementary materials.

I will be drawing on those as I see fit,

as they fit into the line up of arts and courses.

Now,

there is much room for jiggling and joggling.

For instance,

just to name one specific,

which should come first?

Tai Chi or Monkey Boxing.

Technically,

Monkey Boxing would be the first.

But culturally,

Tai Chi should come first.

So I chose my order of arts,

but that doesn’t mean you are bound by it.

And,

what about weapons?

TEchnically,

it is at the end,

but we all know that weapons

can be plugged in anywhere.

So you can do the arts in any order you wish.

Although I always recommend Matrixing first,

as that is the core of the logic,

of the science,

of the martial arts.

So,

that is what I am working on,

and I will keep you posted,

and even set up a dummy site first,

and invite you to go through it

and offer comments and criticisms as you wish.

Now,

I know I’m not giving you

the secrets of the universe this time,

although one could say that offering 

a completely sane pathway for the martial arts

IS a secret of the universe,

but stay tuned.

The pearls are coming

so don’t be swine.

And,

that said,

here’s a little fourth of July gift for you.

I wrote this back in 2002,

and I put it on almost every course,

and it has even been pirated

and put on the internet,

and I never bothered invoking copyright

because it is so valuable.

The definitions illustrate matrixing,

and highlight the real science of the martial arts.

Now,
