How to Evolve a Thousand Years Every hour in the Martial Arts!

Newsletter 824

The Martial Arts, and Evolution…

Speaking of matrixing, the martial arts, and evolution…
I came across an interesting thought
the other day
I was reading some old yogic scrolls,
and the claim was made
that an hour of yoga
caused a thousand years of evolution
in the person doing the yoga.

Interesting claim.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

The most important Martial Arts book ever written.

it’s not right,
though it does act like it is right.

After all,
when you evolve,
you are not growing,
you are reclaiming yourself.
So it’s true,
but…not really.
Which brings us to Matrixing.

When you study a martial art
that has been matrixed,
the art is logical,
and therefore the you accept it.
you like things to make sense,
to be logical.

when you matrix a martial art
you accept this logical method
of looking at and handling the world
at a much faster rate.

The difference between studying a martial art,
and matrixing it
(making it logical through your own efforts)
is the difference between driving a car
and building a car.
The fellow who builds the car
will understand that car far better
than the fellow who simply drives it.

Mind you,
in the end,
you get to where you are going.
But the fellow who makes his own vehicle
in the end,
get there faster.

that said,
there are several things that will happen,
as you matrix,
that will occur.
I don’t think I have ever laid out these results,
described this path,
so here goes…

you will tend to look at the world in a logical manner.
You will become better at solving problems.
You will become a better worker and boss.
You will become an artist.

Everybody sort of knows this,
most martial artists experience this,
so let me take you where most people don’t know.

you must put aside emotion.
This is an interesting thing.
People will put emotion on you,
and you will feel the need to respond with emotion.
But the Neutronic definition of emotion:

emotion is motion inside the head.

you must still the emotion,
stop the motion inside your head,
and not respond with emotion,

there is good emotion,
love, happiness, etc.
And there is bad emotion,
hate, fear, sadness, etc.

So the specific emotion you must not respond to
is the bad emotion.
Good emotion okay.
Bad emotion you must uncreate from even beginning.

Think about it,
emotion is merely the automatic response
of one who is overwhelmed.
You must not become overwhelmed,
you must view the world in logical terms,
so that nothing can surprise you,
nothing can overwhelm you.

you must defeat the distraction of memories.
You must not respond because any conditioning
you may have received.
This includes any familial conditioning,
any educational conditioning,
any conditioning of any kind.
you must create yourself in the moment.

For instance,
your father laughed at certain types of jokes before you,
do you laugh at the same kind of jokes?
Don’t you realize that he laughed at jokes in his moment?
And that you have an entirely different moment?
That will change the type of jokes you might laugh at.

For instance,
school might train you to think like a physicist,
and you will analyze the world as a physicist,
when you should analyze it as a unique being,
not trapped by an education.

(Mind, I am not saying you can’t be a physicist
and be in the moment, too)

For instance,
do you view the world through a religious viewpoint?
It would be much better
to study all religions,
to understand all religions,
than to choose one religion over all others.

Don’t become the only thing in the universe
willing to kill over a belief system.

This is simple after you have evolved a few hours…

you must separate yourself from other people,
without losing your humanity.
you must be immune to the attitudes
of your fellow man,
but you must love your fellow man
all the same.
This one is incredibly tough.
No matter how far you evolve,
there will always be some idiot
telling you what to do,
thinking he is smarter than you,
and so on.
Can you accept and even use this fellow?
And put aside your certainty
that he is an idiot?
Interesting problem, eh?

and this one is a toughie,
don’t view the world as a fantasy.
This is probably the toughest,
for you become enlightened through the things
I have previously mentioned,
then you might think that,
because you are so smart,
the world should be as you say.

For instance,
you make a battery powered car,
to save the world from pollutants,
and don’t ever consider
that someday the battery will have to be disposed of,
and that the battery might be worse
than all the oil pollutants of a gas car.

this is one of the most dangerous things
you will ever to confront
on your way to self-sufficiency
as a spiritual being…
on your way to your ultimate evolution…
on the way to the ultimate truth of yourself.

Though people haven’t discovered
the earlier truths,
they don’t know how to look at the world logically,
or control their emotion,
or control their responses to people,
they will still try to rule the world through their fantasy.

Have you ever met a fellow without an opinion?
And yet I am asking you to be one.
Toughest problem you will ever encounter.

this is the truth of matrixing
and where it leads to.

you learn to look at the world logically
through the matrixing method.
You put aside the distraction of memories,
then you put aside emotion,
other people’s thoughts,
and even fantasy.

Then you find the truth of yourself,
and you start manipulating the universe
the way it should be manipulated.

The truly odd thing is that this path
often starts with a simple motivation:
the desire to defend yourself.
The wish to become physically safe
through simple exercises and drills.

Where this path leads,
is sublime.

the one caution:
People think they can do this through any martial art.
Yet nobody has ever succeeded.

the people who think they have
are merely manifesting their fantasy of the world.
They are still mired in the muck,
and don’t understand that they have no logic.
They have only the fantasy of logic.
They have only an opinion and no facts.

So it has to be a matrixed martial art.
It can’t be a Chinese fire drill of a martial art,
it has to be a logical (matrixed) martial art.
Then it will work,
and then you can experience something like…
a thousand years of evolution
through a simple hour of exercise.

Matrix Karate starts the matrixing process.
Study the courses as you need to,
until logic outweighs fantasy in your mind.
Then you will be off and running.

But whatever you do…
don’t settle for an opinion.

Here’s a link…

And if you’re not ready for Matrix Karate,
then at least check out the ‘Binary Matrixing in the Martial Arts’ book,
or the ‘How to Matrix the Martial Arts’ book.
They are available on Amazon.
(leave a good review!)

have a great work out!

True Martial Arts Training Methods

Newsletter 816

Relaxing is the only way to find the True Martial Arts

I remember reading of Koichi Tohei,
many years ago,
and some scientists asked if they could test his ki.
Like, on machines.

do yoga

Click on the Cover

Now this isn’t a smart idea.
Ki is an energy motivated by thought,
sometimes the energy can be registered,
but the thought never can,
so science often proves there is no such thing as ki.
Can’t be measured…doesn’t exist.
Which is the same reasoning
that kept the world flat for so many centuries.
They just don’t what to measure,
and there isn’t a machine in existence
that can measure thought.

That said,
the test went round and round,
they couldn’t explain what Koichi was doing,
and they couldn’t figure out the readings they were getting,
and he,
probably with a diabolical sense of humor,
told them he could slow his heart down.

They said nonsense,
a human being couldn’t control the nervous system in that way.
So he did it.
He dropped it some 30 beats,
then sped it up again,
then slowed it down.
And the scientists were really confused.

So let’s talk about what you are supposed to do
with your mind in the martial arts.

forget it.
It’s just a bunch of memories.
Get rid of the past,
at least ignore it,
and you are more in the present,
and then you can better control your body.
Logical, right?
But too simple.
People have a hard time buying into this simplicity.

in Karate,
we trained so that the mind
didn’t become excited,
and so that we kept looking,
and ignored emotion.
Ignored the emotion of fighting.
Didn’t feel the anxiety,
or panic,
or sudden beating of the heart
as the world devolved to chaos.

Note that I am moving at the same time.

When somebody throws a punch at me
I actually slow down.
My mind looks right past any memories,
and I focus on the moment.
I stop reacting,
even to my own training,
and start moving with the person.
In real time.

there are MANY examples of this in the world.
The baseball player,
for instance,
the guy way out in the field,
Not before it,
not after it,
but at the same time.
he moves intuitively to where the ball is going.
He attempts to ‘meet’ the ball,
at some specified time and place.

But how did he know where the ball was going…

There are other examples,
but this is my favorite,
probably because everybody knows what I am talking about.
Especially if they have played baseball.

If you have ever had a sixth sense,
known when something was going to happen before it happened,
felt somebody walk behind you (hairs on end),
that is you,
putting aside memories,
and perceiving directly.

In Karate,
it happened about the time I got to Black Belt.
When I got there I began to focus,
without excitement or distraction,
on what was happening.
And it really screwed people up,
when I displayed no reaction time.

Reaction comes from ‘react’
which means you are so immersed in memories (or training)
that you can’t perceive directly.

Signals have to travel through the body to create motion,
instead of you,
apart from your body,
just creating motion.

I’ve talked long enough,
probably left as much confusion as enlightenment.
But here’s the trick…
You have to train with people
in a system which understands this.
In which the techniques support this,
the forms are aligned and orderly.
The freestyle is not a fight,
but a procedure of learning how to look.
Not getting excited,
not getting distracted by emotions,
but calming yourself
so that you don’t get excited.

I’ve done the best I could
to give you a good system.
In fact…systemS.

Here are the systems…

But you have to work,
and work hard.
You have to get the idea that I’m talking about in your mind.
You have to force yourself to calm,
to put aside excitement,
and become cool and machinelike in your actions.

Good luck with this,
in spite of all the simplicity of my systems,
it is still hard.

It’s hard to restrain emotion,
put aside memories,
memories that you sometimes don’t even recognize as existing,
and function on a high level.

But it is possible.
Good work out to you.

Fantasy Martial Arts!

Newsletter 789
Fantasy Martial Arts!

Happy Sunday morning!
It is perfect,
is it not?
For a Sunday workout.
A time in which to make yourself stronger.
More enlightened.

Okay dokay…
I was thinking about fantasies and the real world.
A fantasy is when you think,
‘I’m going to do this!’
and it bears no reality to the real world.

You practice the martial arts,
you mock up defenses for everything
from rape to atomic wars
and you think you are prepared.

But that’s not what it is all about.

The average person will get in three fights in his life.
That’s the actual statistic.

some people have more than that.
A lot more.
A guy who trains in boxing might have a dozen fights,
A cop might have a dozen fights.
The guy who trains in a dojo
usually doesn’t have any fights.

It’s true!
People who train,
and especially in the classic martial arts,
almost never get in fights.
The fights happen around them,
but somehow they walk the walk…
right out of the confrontation.

You can’t believe how many people have verified this for me.

‘I started the martial arts
and now nobody bugs me.’

And the truth is that they have learned to face their fellow man,
and themselves,
and they don’t have that certain set of fears
that results in fighting


And it lasts their whole life.


And this is what happens when you go through
the fantasy of the martial arts.
Your fears fade
and you are left
with the reality of you.

let me change pace,
if you think about it,
what I have just said is the truth,
and there is nothing more to be said.

Let me bounce around a bit.

Hanakwanmass to you.
Whether you believe in Happy Hanukah,
Krazy Kwanza,
or Merry Christmas,
let everybody around you
feel the joy you have found in the martial arts.

Give yourself a present,
or give somebody else a present,
this year,
of martial arts.

Let everybody know,
just by your calm attitude
and peace of mind,
what you have
by giving it to them.

If we had a planet full of black belts
we wouldn’t have any wars.


That is such a totally inescapable conclusion.

get ready,
next newsletter will be
my yearly rendition of
The Night Before Xmas.

And here’s something I have never mentioned,
every time I recite that Xmas poem,
every year,
I get people jumping the newsletter.
It’s true.
I send out my rendition of
The Night Before Xmas
and people cancel subscriptions at a mad rate.

Makes me laugh.

See there are two responses to the thought
behind this Martial Arts Xmas poem.

You can laugh,
and embrace the insanity.

You can get mad,
and struggle against the insanity.

But the insanity will be there
until you do enough work outs.
Do enough work outs
and the fantasy leaves,
and you are left with the truth of the martial arts.
All I’m doing is showing the way.

The Way.

Have yourself an incredible HanakwanMass.

and a fantastic work out!


After 50 years in the martial arts,
these are the forms I study…

My gift to you.

Zombie Loops and the Martial Arts

Martial Arts Spirit Revealed

Good evening!
great evening!
And have a great late night work out.
When everybody is asleep,
go out in the middle of the street,
or the field,
or whatever,
and feel the silence.
And let your emotion fill the silence.
All of it,
all the way to the moon.

I got in a discussion the other day,
with a very smart fellow.
He was telling me about these things,
I think he called them ‘zombie loops.’
Zombie loops are memories,
that condense in the brain,
or condense the mind,
or something,
so you can break through to true artistry.

The problem was,
he was telling me
that zombie loops are the result of meat,
and the body is meat,
and inspiration is meat,
and spirit is the imagination of the meat body,
and when you die
there is nothing more.

Pretty grim.

So I told him he was wrong.
I asked him who was looking through his eyes,
I told him that this was awareness,
that it couldn’t be measured,
and it was spirit,
that he was a spirit,
an ‘I am.’

But he was solid.
He believed in zombie loops,
and art as a manifestation of meat.


So we argued,
and discussed,
and I couldn’t convince him,
and the reason was simple:
he had never done the martial arts.
He had never stared at a man on the mat,
watched the eyes
until he could see the thought behind the action.
He had never sweated himself
beyond what he thought he could accomplish.
He had never experienced

Himself apart from his body,
as an awareness that is not the eyes,
but looks through the eyes.

He was spiritually void.

And it really is a shame.

These people who believe in science,
to the exclusion of the spirit,
you have to ask yourself…’why?’

Why can’t they understand spirit?
And belief and imagination
and all of that sort of thing?

they use their imagination
to conjure reasons and belief systems,
as to why man has no soul,
thus negating themselves.

That all said,
I thank all you martial artists out there.

Thanks for being part of something
that enhances the human spirit,
improves the spirit,
addresses the soul.

Thanks for being artists.
Thanks for delving into the discipline
until you find yourself.


a couple of words…

I haven’t been sending out newsletters
because I’ve been working so much.
When I came down from Monkeyland
I had to start everything over.
No job,
no place to live,
had to start from scratch.

So I’m pretty busy.

second thing,
new book is almost out.
‘How to Matrix the Martial Arts…
and the Universe and Life and Everything!’

It is a recounting of the exact method I use to matrix.

I’ve told people,
over the years,
that I really wanted to sum up
the matrixing science and experience.
And this is the closest I’ve come.

You’ll have seen parts of this book here and there,
in some of the courses,
but this is more,
this is the whole thing,
and you’ll understand more about how
the courses are arranged and why,
and you’ll see the exact mathematics I use,
and the exact geometry I use.
So stand by,
I’m doing the final few readings,
working on the graphics,
and it should be ready in a week or two.
Cross your fingers.

And here’s the link for a list of my books.
Check it out,
see what you don’t have,
see what grabs you,
and check them out on this page,
which will likely put you through to Amazon,
which has more info on them.

have a fantastic work out!



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

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?
Loose teeth?
This is the sign of a bad school.
A good school,
with the techniques practiced properly
will not have many injuries.
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,
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.

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.

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

have a great work out!


Surviving Ten Seconds and Beyond

Surviving Worse than Zombies with Martial Arts!

Want to know one of the best books in the world
for home defense?
For basic strategizing?
For opening up the mind to combat possibilities,
for handling everything from mobs to global conflicts?

The Zombie Survival Guide.

New book about Bruce Lee!

martial arts

Be silent, my friend, and hear yourself think…

It’s true.
The guy who wrote it
is actually responsible for
‘World War Z’
So you know he’s telling the truth,

the book goes into how to zombie proof your home,
which is good for forestalling mobs,
personal tactics (take off the head)
and generally preparing yourself
for when the world falls apart.

The book is very similar to
The Boy Scout Manual,
or the Army Ranger Handbook.

Got lots of things in it.

The thing that made me think about this
is that a fellow emailed me,
asked my opinion on various things,
such as the end of the world.

The end of the world is an interesting topic.
EMP attack?
California falling into the ocean.
(Not a bad thing)
and so on.

But here’s something I realized,
the world can end at any time,
for anyone,
on a personal level.
you don’t have to wait for the government to sell us out,
the dollar to go bad,
the Chinese to buy McDonalds…
it can end tomorrow with a mugging,
a fender bender that escalates,
a cop on the wrong side of bed.

And that’s when that fifteen years of training
turns into 10 seconds of survival.

most of the guys reading this,
they are active in the martial arts,
but there are a few who aren’t…
and who should be.

You make sure your car is running smooth,
the engine isn’t pinging,
the tires aren’t bald,
because those things can interrupt your life.
martial arts training can save your life.

And even if you don’t use them,
you will use the health benefits,
the calm of mind benefits,
you will live longer,
just like Mom.

check out the Zombie Survival Guide.
while you’re at it,
go here…

This is how to make anything a weapon,
how to translate weapons to empty hands to throws,
how to be the one alive
when somebody as stupid as a zombie
decides he should live and you shouldn’t.

Have yourself a great work out!



The True Language of the Martial Arts

Newsletter 751
Matrixing is the Rosetta Stone of the Martial Arts

Simply gorgeous day.
Perfection is a work out away!

I know it’s been said before,
but not as importantly as it should be.
The Martial Arts arts are a language.

Without even going into Matrixing,
let me explain something that happened to me.

I went to school,
I was bright and energetic,
thought I was going to get smart,
and didn’t realize that I was already smart,
and that the real purpose was
to make me socially acceptable.
Which means…
do what you’re told.

So I signed up for a language.
This was when I was in sixth or seventh grade.
A summer school program,
and I was really excited1
I was going to learn a while language!
I went to class
I sat there and learned how to count,
the teacher made remarks about how the mouth
has to be a certain shape,
and I rapidly became incredibly bored,
and I floundered,
and my excitement disappeared
faster than sheep
at a convention of wolves.
Didn’t like languages,
didn’t want to learn languages.
Stupid stuff.

if that wasn’t bad enough,
I tried again in high school,
and it was worse,
when it came to college…
the hell with it.

So what happened?
What happened was a simple matrixing problem.
When you see your first matrix,
and this is in Matrix Karate,
you see how the matrix is used
to find out the things you didn’t understand,
the things that you didn’t even know were there.

When you learn language,
or just about any other subject in school,
there is no matrix,
so hidden at the edges,
and often in plain sight
are all the things you don’t understand.
And this confuses the things you do understand.

Here’s your new language,
call it Alioffstupe.
Count to ten.
The numbers are
one, dos, elebong, ta ta, 6, (blank), xxx.
Well, the numbers aren’t all there.
And the ones that are aren’t totally understandable,
or seem out of place,
by the way,
your mouth is in the wrong shape so you’re wrong.

Still feel like learning my new language?
I don’t think so.
It is stupid,
and it doesn’t make sense,
so nobody in their right mind
would want to learn Alioffstupe.

you know where I’m going with this…
when you are taught to learn the martial arts,
you need to count in another language.
The concepts are badly mangled zen,
and the teacher says you’re the wrong race!
Maybe in three or four lifetimes you can learn it,
but…not now.
Now the best you can hope for
is to bow extra low
to those who are shaped better than you.

So the martial arts are a language,
a move is a letter,
a technique is a word,
a form is a sentence,
and so on.
but without a matrix,
the letters are from different cultures,
the words are from different languages,
and the forms are…silly and don’t make sense.

you can’t come across a forum today
where some fellow doesn’t lambast forms.

all it means is that he doesn’t understand a language,
he was culture warped,
and he is protesting,
and trying to rationalize something he didn’t understand.

Look at that last sentence,
‘rationalize something he didn’t understand,’
right there,
that is the problem,
of all the martial arts.

And here’s the sad thing,
even if you are smart,
and get through the mess,
you don’t have a method for teaching
that will bypass what you had to go through!
In other words,
without matrixing you’re passing on the martial arts
in the same unintelligible fashion
they have been passed on for millennium.
it makes sense to you,
You made it through,
you didn’t see any problem,
and you don’t understand what is going on in the student’s mind.

And the problem is this:
if you don’t have matrixing,
you are lost in a jungle of bastard languages,
and don’t even know it.

Can you give up false learning,
to learn true learning,
and then make all that you have learned true?

Can you learn matrixing,
and save all your students?

Interesting question,

And here’s the obligatory link…

Hope to see you there.

have a GREAT work out!
And I’ll talk to you later.
