How to Tell if A Martial Arts School is Any Good!

Good afternoon
Perfect afternoon, actually,
because I get to work out!
how about you?

New Book on Yoga. Click the cover!

New Book on Yoga. Click the cover!

Sorry i am getting behind on the newsletters,
just have a lot to do.

I was thinking the other day
about how people can tell whether a martial art school
is good or bad.
I mean…
how do you tell?
Trophies don’t mean much,
loud mouths don’t mean much,
so how?
And i realized there was one way to,
if not tell how good a school is,
at least to elevate it to good consideration.
Simply go in and chat,
and look around,
and see how many injuries there are.
Do students talk about getting their fingers broke?
Toes?
Loose teeth?
This is the sign of a bad school.
A good school,
with the techniques practiced properly
will not have many injuries.
Yes,
lots of bruises,
maybe a bloody lip,
maybe a mouse,
but no broken bones.
No hip replacements,
broken noses,
or other signs of people out of control.

The martial arts are all about control.
Can you control the other fighter?
Or do you have to hurt him to control him?

Hurting to control is not control at all.

Here’s the thing,
you practice the martial arts not to beat people up,
but rather to learn how to control yourself.
Once you learn how to control your own body,
the second stage is to control the other person’s body.
That’s what the martial arts are really all about.

When I was practicing Kenpo,
back in 67,
I broke a toe,
I broke a finger,
and I was always going slow
because of pulled muscles,
and other sorts of things.

When I joined the Kang Duk Won
we fought three times harder,
easily,
and I never broke anything.
I got more bruises,
but less injuries.
The students knew they could hurt each other,
so they didn’t try,
they tried to control themselves well enough,
so that they could control the other person.

It’s not about fighting.
It’s about the discipline of self control.
You don’t fight,
you scientifically analyze,
you break down the techniques,
and apply them carefully,
so the other person is not hurt,
but is controlled.

That’s the whole thing,
right there,
in a nutshell.

So think about it,
stop lusting for power,
and start searching for control.
It is so much more satisfying,
and will take you to the true martial arts.

Okay,
check out The Master Instructor Course
Only one of its kind,
the actual physics
of how to control your own body,
or somebody else’s body.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/4-master-instructor-course/

I keep pushing this,
because it is so unique,
so important,
and will change your martial arts,
and all martial arts.
Period.

Now,
have a great work out!

The Release of Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts

Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts

Good afternoon!
And Yeehaw!
The new book is here!

Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts!

The URL is…

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/5a-binary-matrixing-in-the-martial-arts/

monkey kung fuThe main purpose of the book
is to establish the martial arts as a science. To do this,
I offer a basic truth of this universe,
and compare it to the yin yang.
Thus,
myth becomes science.
Mysticism becomes science.
And all of matrixing is thus proven as a science.

Now,
I‘ll tell you more later,
In a day or two I’ll write about the structure of the martial arts,
tell you all sorts of things,
but for right now,
head over to this page

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/5a-binary-matrixing-in-the-martial-arts/

and check it out.
You want to be enlightened?
Get to the truth of the martial arts?
Understand how the martial arts were grown?
Get the cornerstone of all matrixing?
It’s all in
Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts.

This offer will only be up for a week,
then I will probably have the paperback book out,
and be putting the thing on Kindle.
Kindle won’t allow me to sell my own book
in competition with them.
So this is more than likely a one week shot,
take advantage now.

Have a great work out!

To Understand the Martial Arts

Happy June!
Perfect month for working out!
All you guys and gals out for the summer,
have you set your goal?
Do you know what martial art
you want to learn this summer?

master yoga

hard martial arts workout

This guy understood Zen!

Okay,
there was a question I read
on a forum the other day,
the question was
what martial arts book is the best?
Interesting question.
What was more interesting
was that people didn’t understand it.

There were a few answers,
no matrixing books,
unfortunately,
but that will eventually happen.

The Book of Five Rings was there.
Moving Zen was there,
but that was as close as they got.
And at the bottom of the scroll was the most amazing comment.
‘I don’t underestand.’

That was it.
I don’t understand,
and therein lies the problem of mankind.

When I don’t understand something,
I usually go out and find some written material,
find out what it is about.
So here is a guy who studies martial arts,
doesn’t understand.
So he doesn’t read books,
doesn’t know the relationship of zen and Tao and all that,
to the martial arts.
Really doesn’t understand
that an art is the manifestation of spirit.
He just goes along,
day after day,
monkey see monkey do.

What is the value of his life?

Does he just drink beer and think the stars are cool?
Does he even know where he is going?
For that matter,
does he even know that he is?
What is the point of his life?

Without understanding,
what is the point of anything?
Might just as well be a monkey,
swinging from tree to tree.

I remember reading ‘Zen Flesh, Zen Bones,’
and being so totally away,
lightening in the skies,
you know?

And when I read these books,
I somehow tapped into more resources.
I had more energy.
I had the idea
that if i could master myself,
if I could control myself,
I could find out the truth.

And here’s a guy,
might even be a black belt,
for all I know,
and he doesn’t understand.

Mind you,
there’s nothing wrong with not understanding,
but there is something wrong,
if he doesn’t want to solve it,
doesn’t want to find understanding.

No understanding and you are pavlov’s dog,
drooling on command,
buying what the advertisers want you to buy,
accepting what the government says,
never objecting,
just nodding and…and drooling.

Ah, well.
I’m probably preaching to the choir here.
If you guys ordered any matrix courses,
then you wanted to understand the martial arts.

Of course,
the real shame of it,
is when some guy thinks he understands,
thinks he knows what I’m saying,
and hasn’t done a matrix course.
Then he’s just delusional.

So,
not sure where to go with this rant,
I was just so blown away,
hate to give anybody a bummer,
but the real solution,
is to find out.
To get a little light in your skull,
to read,
to work out and figure out
the relationship between reading and working out.
To find understanding
for what it is you are really doing in the martial arts.

To find the mystery of Chi
to cement your understanding of history
to collect ‘volumes’ of forms and styles,
to be quite and incisive in your thinking.

And that’s all pretty easy if you matrix.

Have you taken a look at:
Matrixing: the Master Text?

You should.
It has all the data on matrixing.
It has matrixes I for the various arts,
taken from the various courses.
It shows you the complete geography of the MartialArts,
and how I figured it out.

One thing is sure,
if you read
Matrixing: The Master Text,
you will understand.

You will understand the martial arts
better than all the people
who have not matrixed.

Makes you the great master,
you know?

A Great Birthday Win in the Martial Arts!

Newsletter 761
A Great Birthday Win

Hey Hey and Hi!
I’m just about to work out,
gonna do it right after writing this.
So when you finish reading,
make sure you work out, too.

master yoga

martial arts

Be silent, my friend, and hear yourself think…

I received a great win,
and I want to share it.
Then I’ve got something to ask you.
Here’s the win…

Hey Al!
First off: all the technical stuff (downloads and video access) worked perfectly.  Thank you very much for your (professional and courteous) concern.
I want to apologize for the delay in my response. I saw your email, and wanted to be sure to give you an honest response, so I decided to check all the downloads first. And then, while I was waiting on the other downloads, I thought I would read a little bit…
Now, three days later, I’ve read everything, and I’ve gone back to your site to read about all the courses you have available.  Why?  Because, put simply:
After 24 years of Martial Arts training (including instructor certification in three different arts and several years of teaching professionally in both a storefront and through seminars), Matrix Karate is THE SINGLE BEST PEDAGOGICAL METHOD (for the martial arts) I have EVER had the pleasure to encounter.
And you are welcome to quote me on that, or anything I have to say here, in whole or in part, should you find it convenient or beneficial to do so.
I was thoroughly shocked to find your work, because I have been trying to ‘get’ the True Way through studying many arts. I have found some pretty awesome things while comparing Karate to Wing Chun, practing Aikido weapons before Tai Chi play, and incorporating Qi Gung into my Krav Maga. But I felt there was something more, something deeper… And I believe I have found it in Matrixing!
Jeff

Thank you Jeff,
wins really make my day.
And,
this one hit me good,
because,
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!

It’s always nice to get a little present, eh?

And, that brings us to the thing I was going to ask you.

Forgive me.

I ask this twice a year.
Birthday and Christmas.
Simply,
if I have messed up,
offended,
done something wrong,
said something that rubbed you the wrong way,
or ANYTHING,
forgive me.

It is important to live a clean life,
and this one thing
helps keep me clean.
Keeps the thoughts pure in my universe,
and keeps my martial arts popping.

So thank you.

And,
I guess I should say one other thing about this.

Many people walk through life
looking for people to tell them they are great.
I go through life looking for my mistakes.
You learn ten times more from a mistake,
than you do from a pat on the back.

Nothing wrong with a pat on the back.
I heartily recommend them,
but,
shove my face in a good mistake.
It will teach me much more,
and I will be better for it.

Okay,
Last thing.
It’s the beginning of summer.
Kids are getting out of school,
people are planning vacation,
so what martial art are you going to learn this summer?
The three month Karate course will work nicely.
Set that goal,
a Black Belt by september,
plan out a daily work out,
a couple of hours will do well,
and then make that goal happen.

Look,
you see that PX90 thing on TV,
three months to a totally changed body.
And the military takes people
and totally changes them in 3 – 4 months,
so why the heck can’t you learn something like Karate?
Or kung fu or whatever?
In three months!
It will not only change your body,
make a completely different you,
give you the ability to self defend,
but it will give you
an accomplishment of knowledge
like nothing else on the planet.
Being a black belt
is simply the best knowledge you can have.
It is the best thing you can be.

So,
why not?
What the heck else you got going?
Eh?

Okay, Here’s the address…

go out and have a great work out!

Yoga Fixes Body Easily!

Yoga (The Yoga Kata)

Yoga has been around for thousands of years. Yoga asanas, or postures, were being done by people for this period of time for one simple reason: they work. The interesting thing is that they work, in spite of the fact that they are, for the most part, being done wrong.

I stumbled across this fact as a result of my studies in the martial arts. I studied martial arts for years and years, for decades, and finally realized that I was trying too hard. I was using all my muscles, all my energy, and it was a waste.

It was a waste because how tense your muscles are doesn’t have much to do with how hard you hit. What matters is how relaxed you are. For when you are relaxed you can deliver the punch more efficiently.

If you are tense you are actually working against yourself, against your own body and mind. You are locking up muscles and actually stopping the flow of energy that results in efficient motion.

The problem was that nobody understood this. Instead, karate instructors would train people and wait for them to get tired of using so much effort, would wait for them, after some years, to start relaxing when they executed the moves.

Waiting for a student to get tired is not very efficient. Especially when compared to instructing them on when and how to relax.

In Yoga people are put in postures, and they stay that way, and the instructors, often sadistic animals, chuckle as the student undergoes the effort and the strain and the pain. Heck, we’ve all heard them chuckling and expounding on how easy it is.

But they don’t tell people how to make easy. Even if they do understand, they are often so filled with their own cleverness that they don’t take the time to make the simple explanations.

It’s one of those things of: ‘We’ve always done it this way!’ And no real understanding.

The truth is that effort, strain and pain can actually result in injuries.

The correct procedure should be to encourage the student to relax. Not to put him in difficult poses and wait for a year or two until he finally relaxes, but to educate him as to how to relax individual muscles.

When an instructor does this the student suddenly gets better. He enters more and more difficult poses not by trying harder, but by relaxing his body, by learning that his muscles are fighting, and he must give them commands to relax.

The interesting phenomena is that the student’s mind will not clear out until he has relaxed.

Well, of course. A straining mind is not empty, is not clear of distractions, it is filled with one, huge distraction.

The author will tell you more at Yogata.

Release of Book Matrixing Bruce Lee!

New Book on Bruce Lee!

Man!
Beginning of the week,
and it is looking good!
I mean,
good for a work or ten.
In fact,
perfect for a work out or ten!
So get started!
The only thing you have to lose is your slovenly ways!
Yee haw!

Okay,
the big news,
the release of a book matrixing Bruce Lee’s art,
Jeet Kune Do
(the way of the intercepting fist).

Now,
I released it,
then decided to change the title,
and released it again,
all within two days.
It should be available on Amazon this week,
probably wednesday.
BUT,
you can always pick up the instant download PDF here…

http://freebrucelee.com/martial-arts/new-book-on-bruce-lee/

Now,
this is a most interesting book.
First,
JKD is an advanced art,
so while I present a few matrixes,
and discuss how Bruce came close
to achieving matrixing on his own,
he was a VERY thorough cat,
I have to go into neutronics
to really give his art its due.

And this is why I released it
and then re-released it within two days.
The word ‘Neutronics’ was in the title,
and I IMMEDIATELY had people saying
‘What? What’s that?’
So many didn’t know what it was
I knew they would be scared off.
People are scared of what they don’t understand.
And,
it reminds me of when Karate first came
to the shores of the US.
It was advertised as Judo,
people didn’t know what Karate was,
so they equated it with something similar.
And,
the same thing happened with Kung Fu.
Kung Fu schools,
back in the sixties,
would advertise themselves as Karate.
People just didn’t know what Kung Fu was,
and,
as I said,
people are scared of what they don’t understand.

So,
what is the book about?
I explain matrixing and neutronics very quickly,
then I go through the JKD system
point by point,
comparing and contrasting,
showing where JKD almost matrixes,
discussing how Bruce created something
that requires neutronics to understand,
and so on.

I also give a couple of drills,
one of which hasn’t been seen,
except in the small book I wrote
‘Amazing Fighting Drills.’
Been out of print for a while.

Now,
the book goes for $19.95.
It is advanced,
deserves a slightly higher price.
BUT,
if you know about this newsletter,
then you know how to score this book
for $5 off.
That’s right,
the instant download,
the digital version (PDF)
is available at this address.

http://freebrucelee.com/martial-arts/new-book-on-bruce-lee/

So,
check it out.
Whether you’re interested in Bruce Lee or not,
it is a real charge to actually see how I use neutronics,
let alone matrixing
in the analysis of what is,
undoubtedly,
a very advanced martial art.

Now,
that all said,
one other thing,
it is a beautiful day for a work out or ten…

Have a great work out!
Al

Release of New Book on Bruce Lee!

Bruce Lee Book Just Published!

The name of the book is ‘Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do, and Neutronics.’

Written by Al Case, a martial artist with near fifty years experience in the martial arts, this book takes an outside viewpoint of Bruce Lee, and his martial art (Jeet Kune Do).

Bruce Lee writing

Click on the cover!

Bruce Lee is often considered, specifically as to what drove him to his martial arts theories. The main focus of the book, however, is to compare and contrast Jeet Kune Do to the more classical martial arts, specifically, the author’s art of Karate.

This is a hard core book. While it is respectful, it is obvious that the author holds Mr. Lee in high esteem, there are some very hard questions asked concerning the formation of JKD, and the real purpose of the art.

It is also an intelligent book, going into Matrixing Technology, which is the first and only science of the martial arts, and Neutronic philosophy. The author claims that because JKD is an advanced martial art only advanced methods of thought can be used to analyze it.

Which is to say that if you are Beeavis or Butthead, you may want to avoid this tome. It won’t teach you Jeet Kune Do, and it may hurt your head to actually start thinking about it.

Mr. Case has, as said, near 50 years martial arts experience. He began Kenpo Karate in 1967, quickly became an instructor, and went on to study virtually every martial art that came down the pike during the Golden Age of Martial Arts. He became a writer for the magazines in 1981, and had his own column in Inside Karate. Thus, Mr. Case doesn’t enter the picture as a newbie, but an experienced fighter and writer. His compare and contrast with JKD should provide the most enlightened student with much thought.

Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do, and Neutronics, will be released and on Amazon within the week, and students interested in the paperback version should do a search on Amazon probably by the last week of April 2015.

Students who would like to save $5 and purchase the instant download of the book should go to FreeBruceLee.com.

How Long Should It Take to Get a Black Belt in Military Martial Arts

How Long Should It Take to Get a Black Belt in MCMAP?

How long it should take to get a black belt is an interesting question in any martial art, let alone in the military.

In Karate or Kung Fu, we are talking four to five years.

marine corps martial arts program

Click ont he cover for the truth!

Back in the forties it would take a year. Maybe less, maybe more. And this was for Karate, Japanese styles, and any other style that had a belt system.

Then Kenpo came along and they started selling black belts on what is referred to as ‘car contract’ sales approaches. That way they could keep students longer and make more money.

The actual contract was designed in Kenpo Karate by a dane instructor from Arthur Murray dance studios.

Which brings up the original point of this article, how long should it take to get a black belt when you are studying a military style, like MCMAP, or the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program.

Well, in a commercial school at the local McDojo strip mall school, at two hours a week you would put in 100 hours in a year, 400 hours in four years.

The marines, or the army or navy, in their basic training, have you 24 hours a day for up to four months. Four months would be 120 days. At one hour a day every day, using old standards before the car contract system came in, most people could earn a black belt in that time.

Of course they might have to do with a little less parade ground drilling, and look at training in how to survive with hand to hand on a battlefield, but it is definitely possible.

And, you would have to overcome certain considerations that the military might have.

For instance, they want you to take courses on leadership, and go up in the ranks before they teach you more martial arts. Which is sort of silly, because it’s like saying you shouldn’t learn how to survive hand to hand combat unless you have been around for a while.

And, they would have to revamp some of their training methods; put in more kicks, change the structure of their training so that empty hand fighting better aligned with weapons, and so on.

Most of all, they would have to consider that soldiers aren’t fodder, but that every soldier should have higher and higher training, that every soldier should have the highest possible chance of surviving on the battlefield.

All this done, wouldn’t it be wonderful if a recruit could go into basic training and come out, 120 days later, a bona fide and deadly black belt?

Martial Arts Laws that Make You Blink!

Newsletter 738
Martial Arts Laws that Make You Slap Your Head and go ‘Doh!’

Okay,
here’s the headlines:
In Republic, Michigan…
Women over 200 pounds
and wearing shorts,
may not practice the martial arts
while men are present!

kenpo karate system training manual

How to analyze and handle Kenpo Karate

I’m not kidding. I saw it on the net,
so it must be true.
And if you’re a gal
over 200 pounds
don’t complain to me,
complain to the town council
at Republic, Michigan.
Or just don’t workout around men.

Ready for another headline?
In Jefferson, Idaho…
Women can’t take Karate lessons in a bathing suit
unless they are accompanied by the police
or have a club!
This law doesn’t apply
if the lady is under 90 pounds or over 200 pounds,
and it certainly doesn’t apply to female horses.
Oh, I ain’t kiddin’!

And I hope you don’t think I’m sexist,
here’s a headline about drunks!
(Does that make me a drunkist?)
In Cotton, Minnesota…
You may not work out in cotton pants with hip pockets!
Well, of course.
Hip pockets are just a little too convenient
for carrying a pint of alcohol.
And who among us,
during the sweat and bruises of a good work out,
doesn’t need to stop and swill a bit of courage?
Eh?

I read these headlines on the net,
can’t guarantee the veracity of them,
or even whether they are true,
but they sure do make you think.
I mean,
thank God for politicians.
It’s obvious they have our best interests at heart,
and they sure are making us safe
by passing laws like these.

And, speaking of thinking,
I was talking to Master Instructor Kurt Nelle’,
we were talking about the Kenpo Karate series,
and I asked him to give me a quick report.
Here it is…

Al, I just finished reading the 1st Kenpo Karate book and as requested I am doing a little book report.  I found the History both fascinating and refreshing. I have found that Kenpo history given by the various main stream Kenpo schools,(Parker, Tracy etc), tend to flatter them selves. I appreciate an honest history from someone who was there closer to the start of Kenpo in America.

Next I move on to main text of the book. My Kenpo instructor did come out of the Parker School however, he did not teach the Parker Forms or any forms for that matter. He only taught the self defense and fighting techniques as well as Kenpo Concepts just as you do in this book. You however, have taken it a step further. My Instructor taught the techniques exactly as they were found in the forms. You clean them up and make them more practical. I really appreciated this as I like a 1,2,3 technique as opposed to traditional Kenpo Overkill concept.

While reading over the Techniques and animation in the first book, something clicked in my memory. I went and reviewed the “Lines” section of the Matrix Tai Chi Program. Your explanation of the Karate Basics being found in Tai Chi led me to review the Matrix and  Five Army forms, as well as the Chang Man Ching, Yang and Chang Tung Shun Tai Chi forms that I also practice and teach. There within the sequences of all those forms were found the Kenpo applications. Not the traditional Overkill applications but the streamlined applications as presented in your Kenpo book. I don’t know if this was intended on your part or rather a happy coincidence. Either way, I have decided to use Tai Chi Forms as the only forms in my Kenpo. Its all in there, I just needed something to connect all the dots and that something is your three book series on Kenpo Karate!

Well that’s my book report. I’m moving on to the second and third books now, thank you for writing them!

Respectfully, Kurt

Thank you Kurt.

And if anybody else has a book report,
on any of my books,
feel free to send it in.
I can use what you write
to help people understand what is in my books,
and I’ll send you a freebie of
‘The 500 Martial Arts Articles’
in exchange.
It’s in PDF,
so you can read them right on your computer.

Now,
last things last,
my thanks to Omar,
he wrote in and complained,
said he wasn’t getting my newsletters.

I realized,
after I chatted with him,
that he might have been saying
that I am just not writing my newsletters
often enough.
I usually try to write two a week,
but I have probably been slacking.
I’ll try to get back to that,
and if I don’t,
feel free to complain.

You know
complaints are funny things.
Most people don’t want them.
I want them…fast.
They tell me when I messed up,
they apprise me of my mistakes,
and allow me to fix mistakes
before they become serious misunderstandings.
Business or personal.
And you know what the Neutronic viewpoint
of mistakes is…
Mistakes are an opportunity to learn.
So show me my mistakes,
and I’ll be grateful.

Now,
think that’s about it.
Got any questions,
or contentions,
shoot me an email,
it inspires me on the newsletters
and other things I write.

Check out the Kenpo books,
there are three of them,
and the first is here…

Congratulations to New Martial Arts Master Instructor!

A New Master Instructor in the Martial Arts

Good morning!
And a GREAT work out to you!

Listen, this is neat.
The Academy Awards are coming up,
next day or two
and people get these golden Oscars
for being great.
You know what could be better?

you can get a black belt in less than a yearA Master Instructor Certificate.
It doesn’t signify entertainment,
it signifies REAL knowledge.
A better you.
A real you.

With that said,
CONGRATS
To new Master instructor
Michael D. Jilcott!

Here’s his win!

Mr. Case,

Thank you for all you have put out.  I have been in the martial arts for
over 30+ years.  My first instructor (actually my second but I learned so
much more from him) started me on my “openness” for all forms of martial
arts. He taught Shudokan Karate, but brought in other instructors from
other styles (tae kwon do, other karate, aikido, kung fu).

There were things that I learned, or I should say, was exposed to, that I
would not learn for YEARS later.  Some I re-discovered on my own, others
through the help of others, like yourself.

I really enjoyed reading the Master Instructor Course.  I have gotten new
light on how to tell someone how to “ground” themselves, and a little more
on WHY.

I like your teaching theory [ ] I know that I need to work on this aspect.  The other main thing that I need to work on is-not teaching too much at one time.  With the kids, I don’t have this issue as bad.  BUT with adults, I seem to have.  I guess that I want them to know just as much as possible.

I am now on to the “How to Create Kenpo” series.  I have recently been
given some kenpo videos.  So when I saw that you have a series on Kenpo, of
course I had to get them.

What is your recommendation on the order to read your books on matrixing?

Thank you so much

Michael D Jilcott

Thank you, Michael.
And well done!

You know,
his point about teaching too much,
is common
amongst instructors.
We understand,
we want the student to understand,
and we explain.
But the best explanation is in the doing.

We aren’t bad for our efforts,
just over zealous.
It takes a LOT of discipline
to stop out mouth,
and keep those guys sweating.
But that is key
to teaching the real martial arts.

and I am glad Michael brought this up.
I have had a lot of people comment on this,
and it is a small point,
but it is a point that shows
how simple the Master Instructor Course is.

Not stupid simple,
but common sense,
slap your head simple.

The truth is always simple,
and that’s why it seems to get overlooked.
So thank you, Michael,
for bringing up this point.

Now,
the method for studying matrixing.

You can do the courses/books
as you wish,
according to your desire.
But if you wish to go through the whole thing
in logical step by step order,
Here’s the basic look at how you do it.

The first eight courses
on the Monster Martial Arts home page,
are the heart of matrixing.

They are the first ones I developed.

Past that,
below those eight courses,
are special interest courses,
fields in which I began applying matrixing,
and so on.

The exact history of matrixing is presented in five books.
Four of these books
are included on video courses.
They are,
Pan Gai Noon, Kang Duk Won,
Kwon Bup, Outlaw Karate,
and Buddha Crane Karate,
they are the encyclopedia of Karate,
they show the research done
how I had to cover Karate
beginning to end,
to matrix it.
which, of course,
opened the door to the rest of the martial arts.

And it is important that you understand
that these five books are not matrixing.
They are matrix influenced,
it shows how I evolved
and came up with matrixing.

Which brings us to the latest books
i have come out with.
These are Matrixing applied to specific arts.

we have the Creating Kenpo series.
I take Kenpo apart,
let you see how I actually analyze techniques,
and show you how to make everything smoother,
simpler,
and how to put everything together
in a new format.
The creating kenpo series
will REALLY make you think,
about kenpo,
and other martial arts.

After that:
Fixing MCMAP.
I take a look at the Marine Corps Martial Arts.
This is fascinating
because this art is meant for serious people,
yet there are some massive mistakes in it.
Of extra interest
is the way I combine hands and weapons,
and especially the belt by belt format
on developing kicking.

And,
finally,
Tong Bei.
Tong Bei is an internal Gung Fu
with massive potential.
It is different,
unique,
and yet VERY combat oriented.

Will there be more?
Absolutely.
I’ve already stated my intent
in areas such as the samurai sword,
and Wing chun.
And there are lots of arts out there,
that are begging for a little order,
and faster ways of learning them.

So
thanks to Michael for bringing this up,
and congratulations,
