Hi to Kumar and Jerome this week.
A quick announcement,
I’m not going to be issuing certificates any more.
Just don’t have the time.
going to be changes around here,
and I’ll let you know of them in the coming weeks.
The book is done,
just waiting for proofs.
Proofs are copies just for the author
so he can see what the book looks like.
So, a couple of weeks and the book will be out.
Been a saga,
and I’ll talk about that on the official release newsletter,
but the thing that I want to talk about here
is more neutronic,
and how neutronic relates to fighting.
I believe I have said some of this before,
but it’s worth a second go around.
Neutron means nothing.
No weight, no mass, no intention, no direction.
It is the frame of mind you want to achieve.
specific to the martial arts,
When somebody wants to fight you
they have to come for you.
I’ve actually stopped people from being aggressive with me
by simple saying,
‘You’re coming towards me.’
And who would come towards me in an aggressive manner?
The most obvious ones were people who,
when I was a teacher,
were upset about their child.
Parents can be really obtuse and mean.
the thing is this,
there are actually two waves of attack.
Three if you count the idea of attack.
first a guy gets the idea of attack,
second the guy has the emotion of attack,
third the guy attacks.
The thing that screws people up is this emotion thing.
Nobody understands emotion.
Especially not the psychiatrists
and the so called mental health ‘experts.’
Emotion is motion inside the head.
So the guy decides he wants to beat you up,
he throws rage at you,
then launches his body.
The rage is designed to intimidate you,
and to bolster himself.
The rage hits you
and you are slowed,
and the fight,
as your emotion starts to ratchet,
becomes a wallow through the currents of emotion.
I can’t tell you how to wallow through emotion.
That would be like telling somebody how to swim without water.
you need to take emotion out of the equation.
Let the emotion wash past you,
not touch you,
observe without receiving his emotion,
or mounting any of your own.
This is one of the reasons people
should study such things as Yoga,
or the martial arts concept of
motion without having emotion.
(Mushin no shin ~ Mind of No Mind)
Don’t get angry.
If a guy throws a punch at you it is a gift.
He is communicating with you.
look at it,
If you’ve got emotion going on yourself,
it is difficult to handle other’s emotions.
I learned how to do without emotion by fighting.
I would do freestyle and focus on the opponent so hard
that I ended up in a sort of a tunnel,
looking at my opponent.
This put me out of my head
and out of emotion.
I couldn’t have done that with fighting
if I hadn’t studied the forms first,
and learned the peculiar discipline that goes with that.
You can fight all you want and never get into the tube.
But once you dedicate yourself to learning about forms,
and about your form (your own body),
it becomes surprisingly easy.
It only took me about 20 years.
with matrixing you can probably do it within a year.
Maybe even faster.
Matrixing aligns all the data,
arranges your understanding of incoming force
so that nothing surprises you.
Matrixing educates you as to how the body functions,
and about ten times faster than classical karate.
don’t give up that classical karate.
There’s gold in them thar hills,
especially once you have the pick and shovel of matrixing in your hands.
Here’s the obligatory ad…
I hope you’re working out every day this summer!
It’s the only way to get where you’re going!
HAVE A GREAT WORK OUT!
And don’t forget to check out the interview
I’ve got nothing but five star reviews on
The Science of Government.
It’s really nothing more than applying matrixing to politics.
Matrixing + Politics = Sanity
I told you matrixing works with anything.
