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.

And,
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
will,
in the end,
get there faster.

Now,
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…

First,
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.

Second,
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.

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

BTW,
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.

Third,
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.
Instead,
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…

Fourth,
you must separate yourself from other people,
without losing your humanity.
Simply,
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?

Fifth,
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.

Oddly,
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.

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

First,
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,
though,
is sublime.

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

Indeed,
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.

Okay,
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.

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.

First,
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.

So,
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.

Now,
there are MANY examples of this in the world.
The baseball player,
for instance,
the guy way out in the field,
takes off…AT THE CRACK OF THE BAT!
Not before it,
not after it,
but at the same time.
AND,
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…
at THE CRACK OF THE BAT!

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.

Okay,
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…
http://monstermartialarts.com/courses/

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.
Peace.
Quiet.
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.

Now,
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
anymore.

True.

And it lasts their whole life.

True.

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.

So,
let me change pace,
because,
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.

True.

That is such a totally inescapable conclusion.

And,
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!

Al

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

Zombie Loops and the Martial Arts

Martial Arts Spirit Revealed

Good evening!
Heck,
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.

Weird,
eh?

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.

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?

Instead,
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.

Thanks.

Now,
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.

And,
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.

Now,
again,
thanks.
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.

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!

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,
right?

Seriously,
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.
Volcano?
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.
Heck,
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.

Now,
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.
Well,
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.

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

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/3a-blinding-steel-matrixing-weapons/

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.
Unbelievable.
Perfection is a work out away!

Listen,
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.

And,
if that wasn’t bad enough,
I tried again in high school,
and it was worse,
then,
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,
and,
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.

Okay,
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.

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

But,
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,
ALL THE PROBLEMS,
of all the martial arts.

And here’s the sad thing,
even if you are smart,
diligent,
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.
AND YOU DON’T EVEN SEE THE PROBLEM!
Heck,
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,
eh?

And here’s the obligatory link…

George Washington’s Martial Arts

Making the Martial Arts List

I first got this idea from George Washington.
The 9th president of the United States.

Now,
what made Georgie so much better than the first 8 presidents,
and all the others after him?

the yoga kata book

know martial arts

Is this really the way to solve problems?

To understand that question
you have to understand one neutronic datum:
what you do comes back to you.
This is an absolute truth of the universe.
If you throw a rock at somebody’s head,
then sometime,
somewhere,
you’re going to get hit in the head with a rock.
And if you compliment somebody,
somewhere,
sometime,
you’re going to get complimented.
That’s the way this universe works,
and for a simple reason:
you create it.
And what you create will do what you say.
That’s the truth of:
what goes around comes around.

Okay,
so why was Georgie the best?

Because he made the constitution work.
There was no constitution for the first eight presidents.
But George made the constitution work,
established this country so it wouldn’t fall on its face,
and that made him great.
BUT,
what,
inside George,
drove him to be great enough
to do something that great?

And here is the little known fact,
George read, and apparently acted upon:

Rules of Civility and Decent Behaviour In Company and Conversation

This is a list of how to ‘behave’
first written by Jesuits in 1595.
George had to write them down
as a school exercise.

Here’s a couple of the rules…

1st Every Action done in Company, ought to be with Some Sign of Respect, to those that are Present.
11th Shift not yourself in the Sight of others nor Gnaw your nails.
40th Strive not with your Superiers in argument, but always Submit your Judgment to others with Modesty.

65th Speak not injurious Words neither in Jest nor Earnest Scoff at none although they give Occasion.

Interesting tidbits, eh?

The interesting thing
is that even the ones that seem dated,
have far reaching conclusions.

You can find this list on the internet,

http://www.history.org/almanack/life/manners/rules2.cfm

And it is well worth going over
and considering whether you break those rules,
if any of the rules don’t count any longer,
and how you can better yourself using these rules.
Just translating those rules into modern language
can be positively enlightening.

The point is this:
there is a neutronic maxim:

Politeness is the Greatest Strategy.

These rules of civility
make you consider this maxim.
And then you start living with a bit more quality,
being more careful of the things you do,
how you treat people,
and then the universe starts becoming kinder to you.

It worked for George,
didn’t it?

So why wouldn’t it work for you?
And,
if you think this whole exercise is silly,
consider that the samurai
had a huge and penetrating code of honor.
Bodyguards MUST act a certain way
if they are going to be allowed to function
in certain areas.
And you need to know this stuff
if you are going to be any kind of real warrior.

Remember this one incredibly important fact:

who you are spiritually
is the most important thing in the universe.

Okay,
if you want to tap into the inner you,
work out.
Don’t stop,
day after day,
and you will wake up.
You will become the real you.

And I suggest doing Matrixing to make it happen faster.

Why spend thirty for forty years,
risk dropping out because of injury,
school,
career,
marriage,
kids,
getting old,
and all the other distractions of life?

Do matrixing now,
and you can pack forty years of wisdom
into a year or two of streamlined,
efficient,
logical
martial arts.
Martial Arts that work,
and not on just the physical level,
but in the heart of hearts level.

Here’s the Kung Fu package,
so you can save some money,
and get the whole line up…

That’s Shaolin,
Pa Kua Chang,

and even How to Create Your Own Art…

Okay dokily,
you guys and gals have a fantastic time,
and start thinking about reading and doing
The Rule for Civility,
and changing your whole life
from a spiritual point of view,
this summer.

Have a great work out!

Which of the Five Secrets is is this guy not doing?

Okay,
let’s talk martial arts.
When i was a white belt
I had an obsession.
I would sit back in my head,
and watch my motion,
and it seemed to take forever.
From the start of punch to the stop,
I felt like I could write a 500 word school report.
Slow.

As time went on,
my speed picked up,
but there was always this thing
of being in my head,
and being slow.
I was easy to block.
The funny thing was that
I did okay at freestyle,
so I was fast enough,
but my perception of myself
really ate at me.
I decided upon a punch,
I didn’t want to see it lollygag.

Time kept passing,
and one day I CBMed.
I achieved Coordinated Body Motion.
And suddenly things were different.

Let me change tack to explain this difference.

I went to my instructor,
shortly after I CBMed,
and asked him if he had ever had
anything mystical happen to him.
He knew EXACTLY what I was talking about.

He said,
“I was practicing forms once,
and suddenly I was looking down on my body
through a tube 60 feet long.”

Now,
that wasn’t what I experienced,
and it may be different from other people’s experiences,
but it was the ‘mystical’ experience that defined
when he stopped thinking about doing things
from the viewpoint of being inside his head,
and when he CBMed,
when he lost reaction time,
and started doing things as an aware human being,
and not as a piece of meat type body.

Well,
where did you think the martial arts were going to take you?

Anyway,
Once I broke throughI had a plethora of experiences like this.
All unique,
all expressions of myself
beyond what meat body humans lost in reaction time,
and not possessed of intuitive abilities,
expect,
or understand of themselves.

So,
if you have waded through the mystical of what I just said,
let me give you the EXACT formula
for doing what I have just described:
achieving CBM,
seeing yourself through a tube from 60 feet away,
losing reaction time and becoming intuitive,
or whatever.

One,
breath.

Two,
relax.

Three,
ground.
(sink your weight into the ground)

Four,
fix your body alignment.

Five,
CBM.

Now,
I tell people this in almost every book I write,
it is the one thing I am redundant about,
and thank God,
for it is the secret of the martial arts.
Here’s the problem.

Everybody breathes,
but usually not to the tan tien.

People don’t relax,
unless they are beaten into it.
Unless they are worked so hard
they give up being tense.
Good reason for those big classes.

Usually only the wudan arts
(Tai Chi, Pa Kua, etc.)
understand how to sink the weight.

Nobody understands alignment.
They achieve proper alignment only by accident,
they are victims of the forms that have been passed down,
and the bad teaching that have promulgated with those forms.

Nobody understands CBM,
except in the mystical.
The closest they come is,
‘Use the body as one unit.’

Consider the matrixing definition of CBM.
To start all parts of the body at the same time;
to stop all parts of the body at the same time.
There is more to it than this,
but you can see the scientific bent here.
Not mystical,
something that might happen,
sometime,
if you are lucky,
but something that can be understood,
worked on,
mastered.

Anyway,
those five rules are the secret of it all.
Now,
for whatever reason,
I obsessed on those five things.
I figured them out from reading
ancient martial arts writings,
and translating everything into English concepts.

I would read and think about
‘use your body as one unit,’
until I figured out…
start every part of the body together,
stop every part of the body together.

And I did this for ALL the concepts.
So I broke through the mystical barrier,
and matrixing is my attempt to bring others along.

Now,
if you’re interested,
do the Master Instructor Course,
everything is in there.
A short section on the five secrets I give you here,
but then we start rocking.

I give you the actual rules of alignment,
how to make your form perfectly aligned.

How to align your techniques so they ALWAYS work,
the real physics of technical application
that are the ONLY rules that can be followed,
if you want perfect techniques.

How to CBM so that you achieve internal power.
True internal power,
through a step by step method.

And there’s a LOT more.

That’s why I always insist that people do The Master Instructor Course
before I will video test them.

People who don’t have this data
look sloppy
are inefficient,
and don’t understand why.

People who have this data
self-correct.
instantly.
They become their own teachers.

They get the course,
and suddenly they change those old forms,
and they start moving differently,
and you can feel the power POP out of them.
Just from having the correct information
on how to do the martial arts.
Information that has been unknown,
or done by accident,
throughout the history of man.

And,
here is the funny thing.
Why do you think I teach so many arts?
Because people start learning so fast they NEED more arts.
True.

Anyway,
don’t mean to rant on you,
but here’s the link to The Master Instructor Course,
so you can check it out for yourself.

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

Check it out,
get it,
make your own body start functioning right,
get out of your head,
start fixing those old martial arts
so they work the way they are supposed to.

Okely doggy,
it’s time to start the party,
time for my first work out of the day,
so you have a great work out, too.

Shoot ‘Em Again! It’s Only a Stun Gun!

The Problems of Stun Gun Self Defense

Stun guns became popular for self defense a number of years ago. People touted them as a more humane way of taking bad guys down, and now they have had a number of years to become tried and tested. Unfortunately, their are a few problems with using a stun gun for self defense.

survivalist martial artFirst, let’s address the human angle. No bullets, no surgery, you can zap the hell out of a guy!

Well, not really, shooting somebody with 50,000 volts is rough on the body. If that body has a weak heart, or is even weakened from excess drugs or drinking, it could be killed.

And, having said that, there have been a couple of videos on the net where police sit back and zap the hell out of some poor shmuck. Grinning, and secure in the knowledge that they can torture without worrying about leaving bullet holes.

Humane? No. Dangerous? Yes. Period.

Another point we should take up is the use of a stun gun by Joe or Jane Citizen. Do you know how long it takes to get a stun gun out of holster or purse? And is Joe or Jane a sure shot? They haven’t practiced, so can we be sure they will hit the target first time every time?

So the conclusion is obvious, stun guns are not excellent for self defense, and they do have drawbacks and dangers.

Is it better than shooting somebody?

Maybe, if you actually manage to get a shot off and the bad guy doesn’t have a heart attack.

So what is the alternative?

I personally believe that all police officers should have martial arts training. I believe Tokyo had its police officers all study Aikido, and I think that a study of Aikido, or Tai Chi, or any non-aggressive martial art would be a hundred times better than excessive force and the use of deadly force weapons.

Look, here is the brutal fact, if the police feel they have to arrest somebody they won’t let up. This has the consequence of making police into bullies.

The counter argument is if they let somebody go, and that somebody kills somebody, the police are then responsible.

But martial arts training, especially if it is not aggressive, gives better reactions, and a variety of non-deadly force responses.

So, make the police learn something that will soften their approach, without softening their purpose to arrest bad guys.

And, as for Joe Citizen, maybe if he took a little martial arts he would end up with the self-respect and attitude that drains the bad out of bad guys.

Matrix Kung Fu is a course filled with takedowns and locks. This is a virtual alphabet of grab arts, and it is available at MonsterMArtialArts.com.
