Where do you Focus the Eyes When Fighting?

Newsletter 828

Where Do You Look During Combat

Happy Tuesday!
It’s great for a work out!

martial arts system

A complete Martial Arts System! ~ Click on the cover!

Hey,
one of the biggest,
most frequent questions I get,
when I’m teaching,
is where do you look
when you are free styling.

OR,
and this is really bad,
I get kids who freestyle
while unconscious.

Would you like to fight while unconscious?

Let me explain.
If you were in the middle of a street
and a car came barreling towards you,
would you look at the car?
Or would you look at the driver?

Kids and beginners always say,
‘I’d look at the car.’
I make the noise of somebody being smunched,
run over by a car.
Crunched.

Here’s the thing,
the car has no mind.
It is a piece of metal and machinery.
The car has no direction,
except that which is fed into it by the driver.
So you look at the driver.
You look at the person behind the wheel,
you read his intentions.

Read his intentions.
A car has no intention.
Only a human being has intention.

So you must look at the driver of the car.

AND,
that means,
when you are fighting,
you must look at the eyes.

The eyes are the windows to a man’s soul.

Look at the eyes,
and you can see the intention.
You can see the thoughts.
You can see the intention.

Not at first.
At first you see eyes.
You see flesh and tissue.
But,
with practice,
with dedicated dedication,
you will,
at last,
see the thought behind the body.
The spirit behind the flesh.
The ‘I am’ directing the action.

I know,
I’ve heard all the theories,
even been told to do them,
and even believed them for a while.
Look at the chest.
Use peripheral vision.
See the whole body by unfocusing.
But you’re still looking at the vehicle,
and not seeing who’s driving.

Oh,
eventually,
even without eyes,
you’ll start to perceive
things happening,
but it will be slow and faulty.

Who do you think is looking through those eyes?

Here’s the funny thing,
I was teaching a kid the other day,
and I made him look at me,
really look at me,
the ‘I am,’
and not the body,
and he broke down.
Went into the giggling hysterics.
Couldn’t look at me.

When I was a child and in trouble,
parents lecturing me,
I’d look down,
and immediately got the:
‘Look at me when I’m talking to you!’
They didn’t want me going unconscious.
I had to stay there and take my punishment.
Funny thing,
after a little of that,
I didn’t want to get in trouble.
It was just too hard looking them in the eyes.

This video clip is how you use the blinding steel material…

So that’s the key,
it will help your martial arts tremendously,
it will help your matrixing fantastically.
Because,
here’s something simple,
if you can’t look at it,
you can’t fight it.
And that means you can’t fight.

Why?
Because if you’re not looking,
then you’re unconscious.

Okey dokey.
Thanks to all who have purchased
Tiger and Butterfly Martial Arts,
it’s on Amazon.

the system I do,
right after Tiger and Butterfly
is the Blinding Steel course.

In otherwords,
I teach the hard stuff with the Tiger/Butterfly,
then I do the weapons,
which is Monkey Boxing,
then I finally go through the Matrix Kung Fu.

Funny when you look at it that way,
goes to show how advanced some of those
four original matrixing courses are.

How to Have Real Martial Arts Revenge

Newsletter 786
Revenge…Martial Arts Style

Good Evening!
Feel tired after a long day’s work?
Go stand in the ready stance.
Don’t burst into motion,
just wait.
Let your body fall into the first move.
then the second.
Soon you will be working out full bore,
and feeling tremendous amounts of energy.
Just don’t push it…
let it happen.

Okey dokey!
I was talking with a fellow this past week end,
and an interesting subject came up.
Revenge.

I don’t know why.
We were just talking,
and then…revenge.

Now revenge is very over rated.
if you want revenge,
then you have already lost.
Already been beaten.
So get over it.

But,
that said,
if you are the kind of fellow
who dwells obsessively
on all the things that people have done to you…
the best cure is hard work,
attention to details,
and dedicating yourself to the goal.
In this case,
the goal of revenge.
Of beating him.
Of teaching him a lesson.

And that brings us to an interesting saying.

‘Revenge is a dish best served cold.’

You probably heard it in a Steven Seagal movie,
‘Hard to Kill,’
I believe is the name.
The one where he goes through a seven year coma
only to wake up and kick ass,
and have revenge.

So this old saying an oriental saying and…
except it is not oriental.
Do a google,
and you’ll find it is French!

That’s right.
French.
And,
there is some argument
as to which novel it appeared in first.

But,
it sounds oriental.
It sounds like them evil slant eyes
with their insidious plots,
said it.

I mean,
it even sounds sort of…zen!

But…
French.

But here is the trick,
it doesn’t really mean what you think it means.

Everybody think it means you take twenty years
craft a glorious payback,
and laugh evilly over the dying foe.

Nope.
That’s downright silly.
It’s silly because
in 20 years a lot can happen.
The guy might die.
Your plan might fail.
You might evolve and realize that he was right to win,
and he isn’t such a bad guy.

But assuming he is a villain of Darth Vader’s stature…
why would you want him to enjoy himself for 20 years?
I mean,
get your revenge and get it while the getting is good!
Right?

So here is what the saying REALLY means.
Mind you,
this really is going to be zen.

Served cold refers to having a calm state of mind.

If you laugh maniacally
as he lays dying,
then you have become him.
You have become the evil.
And where is the enjoyment,
when the mind is fevered?
You aren’t enjoying,
you are giving in to your own base urges.
But,
if you can have a calm mind,
then you have beaten him,
not just with your revenge,
but you have ‘out-evolved’ him.

So,
don’t wait,
get your revenge as quick as you can,
but cool your mind down
so you can actually enjoy yourself.

Of course,
as for myself,
I think I would rather dedicate myself to training
before I lost,
before I ever needed a revenge.
Win the first time.
That’s the real key.

Have a great work out
and
HanaKwanMass!

Al

BTW
here’s a course that will help you take control
of your hot to trot,
fevered,
out of control mind.

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 Strange Martial Arts Fear

Newsletter 749
What are You Really Afraid Of!

A fellow wrote me a couple of weeks ago,
and told me of an interesting situation.
He has a friend,
and the friend practices martial arts.
Day after day he goes to the dojo,
and receives the lessons of pain and bruises.

american karateHe’s dedicated.
Martial Arts are the monkey on his back,
and he firmly convinced
that without pain,
there is no gain.

Interesting viewpoint.
Pain is a warning sign,
means some part of your body is in danger,
change what you are doing.

Of course,
there is the good pain,
going through fatigue,
pushing yourself through hard work outs,
risking a few bruises or a bloody nose
just to learn a little extra.
But…be careful.
Pain is definitely a warning bell.

Now,
that understood,
the fellow who wrote me,
who studies matrixing,
sat down with his friend
and explained the facts of life.
He explained that pain is a warning sign,
and he told this fellow
about how to use energy,
how to move without risking the body,
and all sorts of things.

The fellow was blown away.
It made sense,
and he really started examining what he was doing,
and then he made a rather bizarre statement.
He was afraid that matrixing
would undo what he was learning,
and he was afraid that his instructor
wouldn’t like what he was learning.

He’s being taught to take a good kick in the balls,
but he’s afraid that getting out of the way
will end the experience of being kicked in the balls.
And he’s afraid that the guy who is kicking him in the balls
won’t like that he is learning not to be kicked in the balls.
Think about it.

The Chinese did not have logic,
nor did any of the Asian Martial Arts.
Over the millennium
they devised amazing systems,
systems based on the memorizing of random strings of data.
Sort of like running a two mile maze
to get from A to B,
which,
in truth,
was only a 100 yards apart.

These systems really are amazing,
but,
they are easily replaced by this thing called logic.
Good logic,
interestingly enough,
looks like common sense.
But,
you know common sense,
it’s not common.

Anyway,
the point here is that when you matrix
you are supposed to unlearn things.
You are supposed to take apart these random strings of data,
and put them together in a more logical format.

To be afraid that you aren’t unlearning,
is to be afraid of learning (logic).
Is to be trapped by mysticism.

And,
what is going to happen if you actually unlearn illogic,
and learn real logic?
Are you going to turn to stone?
Is your instructor going to take away your belt?
(you didn’t really learn anything, you fool!)
What?

Anyway,
i wish I had a good end to this tale I have just told you,
but my understanding is that the fellow
went back to systems of pain and randomity.
He didn’t pursue matrixing,
and you know what happens now…
in a few months or years
he will start figuring some of the stuff out
that he was told,
and he will say the incredible
‘We have that in our system.’
He won’t associate what he was told,
with what pops up in his head
in a few months or years.

Heck,
people will probably even be in awe of him,
such brilliance.

Ah, well,
that’s life.

But,
for those of you who aren’t afraid,
who have the ability to take things apart,
and simply fix them,
the name of the place is
MonsterMartialArts.com.

If you’re new to this stuff,
check out Matrix Karate.
If you’re old to the game,
just go through the site and figure out your next step.

And,
whatever you do,
have a great work out!

Making a world Class Fist Load, or How I chose the Munio

The Munio Fist Load Keychain Martial Arts Weapon

A Fist load is a Japanese term for a hand held martial arts weapon of the small variety. In this classification you would find brass knuckles, possibly saps, and definitely Kubotans.

munio self defense keychain

chinese hand karate martial art

Complete art, a pivotal time in matrixing ~ click on the cover!

And, you would definitely find Phil Ventrello’s handy, little keychain called a Munio. You can read about the Munio, and of my test of it, here, (https://alcase.wordpress.com/2014/12/01/munio-self-defense-is-great-martial-arts-equipment/)

What you don’t know is that at one time, a few years ago, I decided to make one of these key chain killer devices myself.

First, I went to the lumber store and bought a six inch dowel.

Then, I went to the hardware store and bought a handful of nasty and sharp, little nails.

Then I measured the spread of my finger in a fist, and pounded the nails through the stick at the measured points.

ZOWIE!

I was holding a gnarly stick that fit perfectly into my hand and projected the points of some very, sharp nails between my fingers.

I had a device that could be adapted to carry keys, would fit in my hands, could be used to pound like a hammer, or flail like a small mace, and I pitied the fool mugger who wanted my skinny, little wallet!

And, here is the thing, I could make these suckers and sell them!

I could see it in my mind’s eye, mass produced by some third world country, recommended by police officers and Navy SEALs everywhere, and people would buy them like hot cakes!

Hot cakes with nails in them, but still hotcakes!

Conjecturing over this massive sales bonanza, adding up zeros in my head, I slid my home made fist load into my pocket and—OW!

The nails ripped apart my pants and scored my skin! And when I tried to take it out of my pocket it hurt even more!

I stared at the nasty, little martial arts tool. It bled at me. Darn. It was so perfect, but you couldn’t carry it. Heck, it would defeat any kind of holster, rip apart clothes, and…and if I was caught carrying one of these I would be guilty of intent to maim and all sorts of other stupid laws!

So I tossed it in the trash.

And, several years later, I carry a Munio. And now you can understand why I was so excited when I came across the Munio.

Munio means ’I defend.’ It can be carried into an airport, it won’t zap some poor fool into a heart attack, it won’t spray you in the face, and the darned thing is really cool looking!

Yet you can flail the keys and use the butt of the thing to pound sense into some poor mugger’s face!

Heck, I showed mine to my wife, and though she has NEVER showed an interest in martial arts weapons, she said, “Can I have one?”

So, check it out here…http://www.munioselfdefense.com/munio-workshops/.

Karate, Kung Fu and Aikido Against Voodoo Martial Arts

 Martial Arts: a Destructive Method as Opposed to a Real Method

What you are really trying to do, in martial arts such as Karate and Aikido, and the various types of Kung Fu, is to increase observation while decreasing distance. This is not an exactitude of martial arts practice, but it is the accurate analysis of what we are trying to do.

So you have a beginning martial arts student from one of these classical disciplines, and you launch a slow attack from six feet away. And, as a the months go on, you speed up the attack, and the student gets better and better, faster and faster, and once he reaches a certain point of comfort – that it is comfort is very important, you shorten the distance.

So you launch the attack from three feet away, and you do it slowly, and again, you speed it up over the months. The student gets ‘comfortable’ – remember that word – and you shorten the distance again.

And, you keep shortening the distances until the student is able to stand and observe, not flinch back, and see what is happening, and he is simply becoming more aware.

It’s funny, the martial arts, such as aikido, kung fu, karate, especially the classical ones, are one of the few methods for increasing awareness on this planet. Things like school actually decrease awareness. They jam facts and figures into the head, and it is a rare student, probably a non-existent student, who comes out smarter than when he went in.

But that’s because education doesn’t deal in the real world, except for the sciences, which most people shy away from, and which schools, to remain viable, allow them to. Poor, little darlings (keep writing the check Mommie!)  we’ll get them through something tough, like music appreciation.

Anyway, sorry for that aside, but it is important that you understand the importance of the martial arts on this planet and in your life, so let’s get back to time and distance and awareness.

Awareness is how much of the world you see. And in the martial arts you present a motion, make the student look at it until he is comfortable, then cut the time and make him see more. Cutting the time will enable him to see more.

Now, here is the trick, some of the more modern martial arts, arts based on reality training and so forth, don’t take the time to go through this method, or any other similar working method for increasing awareness.

What they do is increase reaction time.

Now, the student may become more aware in a certain realm, but it is out of his control, he is not able to summon awareness at will, and his body and senses are at risk.

It is the procedure of going to war and depending upon the fact that you are in deathly danger to raise your awareness. It is not a tried and true and scientific method.

It works, but how are you going to teach it without hurting people?

And this method, of forcing increased awareness, of a sort that can be erroneously compared to a real discipline, by putting people in harm’s way usually relies on such terms ‘adrenaline dumping,’ or builds a terminology that is scientific in nature, but psychological in fact. And, the sad thing, psychology is not a science, but merely a voodoo accumulation of whimsical tricks and that sometimes work, if you blunder along long enough. The simple fact of the matter is that psychology, while it has enabled some people under mental stress to go on with their lives, it has never gotten to the bottom of why they weere under stress int he first place, except in the most superficial manner, i.e., some bizarre explanation of wanting to have sex with their mother or father, it’s some one else’s fault, and so on.

The real key here is in the concept of ‘comfort’ under stress.

If your martial art, if  your karate or aikido or kung fu, or even your eclectic discipline, is causing you to relax, to be ‘comfortable,’ when the fist flies towards your face, it is a true art.

And, if you are relying on adrenaline dumping, or touting the fact that you must, simply must try it all out in reality, in a real situation or real fight, to make sure it works, then you are practicing one more savage method, thought up by savages, to retain their savagery.

Savage methods, voodoo training theory, they are a poor excuse for increasing awareness by relaxing, for seeing more of the world simply by applying yourself and making yourself grow through hard work and forcing yourself, I say ‘forcing yourself,’ to see more of the world by learning how to relax under stress.

While the martial arts theory  presented here is pure, it is not practical to apply except in specific exercises; the process of matrixing is the accumulation of many of these specific, and scientific, methods. Further, by being an actual science, and by addressing the actual fact of increasing awareness through such theory as described above, matrixing increases speed of learning by up to ten times, and this in ANY martial art, be it karate, kung fu, aikido, or whatever.

You can find specific Matrix theory and methods at Monster Martial Arts. This includes exact matrixing courses such as Matrix Karate, Matrix Kung Fu, Matrix Aikido, Matrixing weapons, and so on.

 

Matrixing the Real You with Martial Arts

Newsletter 700
Matixing and Neutronics in the Martial Arts

Another day
another work out,
Another chance to be
smarter, stronger, nicer.
Another day to find…
the real you.

I’m going to tell you something really important about you,
about what you really are,
about what you can really do,
and how this relates to the martial arts.

The real you is not your body,
your name,
even your mind.
It is that part of you that looks out.
Watches.
Observes.
Figures things out.
Experiences joy.

It is you…the awareness.

Your real body is not flesh or mind,
it is as far as you can imagine.

One of the things that I have said,
that causes a few people to gripe,
is that you can only go in one direction.
Go on,
go to San Francisco and New York at the same time.
Can’t do it.

Can’t even think about it.
When you try to think about it,
you are thinking of San Francisco,
or New york,
but you can’t think of both of them at the same time.

Oh,
you can pu a thought of one in your mind,
and hold it there while you think of the other,
but that is like writing one on a blackboard,
while you think.
It is not going to two places at once.

You can’t go to two places at one.

Which leads us to an interesting,
and even FASCINATING concept…
you can’t think outwards and inwards at the same time.

Which means,
you can’t attack and erect a defense simultaneously.
And here is where a few people take objection.
They think that if they do a simultaneous block and counter,
they are doing two things.
Nope.
They are attacking.
They are not blocking.

Think about it this way.
You are either going towards someone,
or away,
or parallel (maintaining distance).
Parallel is not doing anything.
Or,
it is doing nothing.
Going towards or away is doing something.

You are either hitting them,
or you are not getting hit.

Now,
what is the value of knowing this,
of holding to this,
of making this work?

First,
you become aware of distance,
and he who controls distance controls the fight.
When you get past learning the blocks and strike and throws and all,
this become THE crucial aspect of the martial arts.
It is REALLY important.
But,
many people don’t understand this
until they have reached a certain point of discipline,
until they have realized the importance of themselves
as awareness.

Second,
you will find that you can control any situation
without using strikes or blocks or etcetera,
you can control ANY situation
simply with very subtle movement towards or away from.
This extends not just from opponents,
but to anything,
any situation,
in life.
Simply,
the offer or retraction of your presence resolves any situation.
Your presence is that strong.

Unfortunately,
a lot of people don’t get this,
it is usually figured out,
realized,
past the time when you become
aware of your ability to control a fight by controlling distance.

The real example of this,
I used to LOVE doing this,
I would freestyle students,
and shift towards or away in the smallest,
most minute fashion,
and it would totally disrupt their thoughts,
and any hope of techniques.
They would find that they couldn’t even attack me,
because they couldn’t mount a thought.
And you MuST have a thought before an action.
Simply,
I would shift when the thought was mounting,
and that would unfix me in space,
and they would have to try to figure it out again.
Honestly,
the students knew what I was doing,
they would understand and see,
other students could tell EXACLY what I was doing,
but they could’t deal with it.

I simply controlled distance better than they could.

Third,
and this is probably crucial to you now,
but will be crucial to you forever.

To control distance
is to control intention.
And intention is the ‘arm’ of the awareness.

You are,
you are an ‘I am,’
but howdy you ‘do?’
How do you accomplish things in this life?
Through intention.

So you study martial arts,
to hav the discipline to locate ourself in space as an ‘I am,’
and then you function as an ‘I am,’
by using intention,
and intention,
in this specific,
deals precisely with…
control of distance.

How close are you to an object (body),
how far away.

Now,
this is sort of an advanced lesson,
and it is a lesson in neutronics.
I figured all of this out
simply by using matrixing
until I was aware of myself as an awareness,
and since then I use neutronics.

So,
you know what I’m going to say now,
get yourself a matrixing course,
and start figuring out what I am saying.
figure out what I am doing.
Don’t just read these words
and think you understand,
for even if you do,
it takes too long,
and how are you going to get somebody else to do this stuff,
unless you have the better and faster method
of matrixing?

Matrixing is a method for locating yourself as an awareness.
Neutronics is a method for functioning as an awareness.
And when you use these tools,
you are different,
the world becomes easy,
you get the things you want out of life,
and what else is there?

Okay,
I suggest Matrix Karate for your start,

But,
if you happen to prefer Shaolin,
or weapons,
or whatever else,
check out the website and find the matrixing approach
that works for you.

Look,
guys and gals,
you never read anything like what I have said here.
Ever.
It simply hasn’t been said before.
Martial Arts are good,
they are great,
but they take too long,
and have too much risk of being misunderstood.
So look at the alternative.
Look at Matrixing and Neutronics,
and think about really finding out
the truth about yourself.

Remember,
the truth of Matrixing and Neutronics…
it is all about you,
finding the real you,
and using the martial arts to do so.
It is about you,
and what you can really do.
And,
man,
that is a LOT!

Now,
a short word,
I will be having an operation on my shoulder in four weeks.
I will be out of action for a couple of months.
That means I will do my best,
but my output will suffer.
It will be be difficult to do things.
I will let you know more
once I have a specific date set up.
But,
what can you do to help…
If you have been meaning to get a course,
please do so.
Your $20 or $30 will help out immensely.
If you have all the courses,
start thinking about neutronics.
Second,
and in a way this is even more important,
help spread the word.
Go through my articles and websites,
and click the ‘Like’ button.
Email things you like to friends.
help people find out about matrixing and neutronics.
If you have read any of my books,
give a review on amazon,
or goodreads,
or whatever.

That’s all you have to do
to help me out.
And I will be needing your help.
After working out every day for near 50 years,
I am going to be motionless,
that is going to be one of the toughest things I have ever done.
But your help will get me through.

So thanks in advance,
and I’ll give you all the exact details
over the next couple of weeks,
as I become aware of them.

Now,
sorry about that,
but think about what I’ve said in this newsletter,
about controlling distance
and how important it is,
and head over to the site and check out some courses.

Thanks for being martial artists,
and have a great work out!
