True Story of Man Afraid to Learn (Martial Arts)

Newsletter 742
And Congrats to New Master Instructor

Got an incredible story about a fellow who is scared to learn.

Before we go into him, however…

Congrats to a new Master Instructor.

how to develop chi powerCongrats to Mathew Tucker!
Here’s is his win:

Hello again Al,
-I have a story to share with you. One if my close friends has been training in kajukenbo for the past couple years. Every week he goes and literally gets the crap beat out of himself all in the name if “body conditioning”. A week ago he and I were talking and I told him “there is a better way”. I began explaining to him the concept of matrixing and he was intrigued. I worked with him for about an hour and he was amazed at how much easier it was when I explained it (using the principles in the master instructor course). But here is the kicker, after all that he said that he is hesitant to use matrixing because it might undermine his “certified” instructors teachings. Lol. Needless to say I was dumbfounded. Al, I know you offer video testing for the individual courses, but how does the master instructor testing work? What do I need to submit? Please let me know. It would be nice to have some type of “certificate” so people like my buddy Josh will know “it’s ok to listen”. Lol.

Thank you Matthew
And congratulations.

Before I get to the qualifications
for the master instructor testing
let me talk about his friend.

The largest problem I have
is people who are blind.
Literally blind.
They have eyes,
but they can’t see.
They have minds,
but they can’t think.

Consider his friend’s position,
‘I am afraid to learn matrixing
because it might threaten what I have already learned.’
And,
even worse,
he’s afraid because,
possibly,
it might ‘offend,’
or undermine his ‘official’ instructor.

Two things come to mind.
Political correctness,
and
fear.

Political correctness because
he is afraid to go against his group,
his leader,
whatever.
Fear because
he says he is afraid.

Can you call yourself a martial artist
if you are afraid?

No.
You can’t.
You haven’t made it yet.

But the thing here is this:
he is afraid to learn.
No matter what the reason,
he is afraid.
And he is going to an ‘official’ school,
and getting beaten up every week.
Which sort of tells you
what schools are really all about.
Beating up people,
instilling fear,
so they can make money.

Go on,
think about that.
There’s gonna be some weird stuff in that thought,
but there is a lot of truth in it, too.

The fact of the matter is
if you are a martial artist,
you should be possessed of a sort of
humble arrogance.

You walk the walk,
but you’re careful in your words,
because you’re walking around people
who are in fear,
who are scared,
and you don’t want to frighten them.

Go on,
think about it.
If you gave a good, ripping
kiai (spirit shout)
in the middle of the mall,
you would have women screaming,
men dropping the pavement,
children crying,
and security would run to arrest you.

Don’t believe me?
I dare you to try it.
I’ve done it,
and that’s EXACTLY what happened.

Simply,
we are living in the midst
of a society that is scared.
Where fake martial artists bully people,
and the true art isn’t much to be seen.

So that is why I congrat to Matthew,
and to all the others
who had the courage to sidestep fear
and actually look at a new thought.
Matrixing.
A way to organize the martial arts,
and jump out of all the BS
and get to where they are going.

Think about it,
here’s a guy getting beat up every week,
and suddenly he finds a better way,
because a Master Instructor takes the time
to sit down and explain the simple facts of life.
And now we have to wait for his friend
to outlast his fear
and take a course himself.

Sigh.

So,
what are the requirements
for this higher level knowledge
that is on the Master Instructor course?
What do you have to do to be certified?

Do the course,
and write me your wins.
Write how it effected you,
how it changed your martial arts,
how you used it to sit down and talk with somebody.
How you helped them overcome their fear of…
knowledge.

That’s the key,
you know.

Knowledge.

The material of the Master Instructor course
is the simple facts.
How you use the body,
how you make perfect form,
how you make ANY technique work.

Once you read the course,
watch the video,
you are changed.
The knowledge changes you.
Whether you want to be changed or not,
you can’t deny the simple truth.

So simply send me your win.

I’ve been selling this course
since 2007,
and NOBODY has disagreed
with the material on the course.

Further,
there has been mass agreement,
not the politically correct kind,
but the unique, personal kind
of individual after individual,
that the material on The Master Instructor Course
is not just right,
but it hasn’t been seen before
on any martial arts video
or in any martial arts book.

So there you go.
You simply have to put aside
any reluctance to learning something new.
Be willing to learn something,
in spite of other instructors,
in spite of your own hesitation,
and order the course.
Then you do the course.
Then you write your win to me.
I announce you,
and certify you,
and that is it.
Period.

Easiest thing in the world,
but you would be shocked
at how many people can’t do it.

So,
again,
congrats to Matthew,
and thank you.

Another Paper on Neutronics in the Martial Arts

Neutronic Handling of Emotion Through Martial Arts

Yes, another academic paper on the martial arts. This one approaches the subject of emotion.

When a fight starts there is a lot of emotion. One of the main things a fighter has to do, or perhaps I should say a martial artist, has to do, is dispense with emotion and get down to business.

martial arts lawHe has to dispense with emotion because emotion tends to obscure motion, makes it harder to analyze and handle force and flow (direction).

So that’s the topic, and the meat, of this paper. how to dispense with emotion and get the job done.

Here’s the link

https://www.academia.edu/11245196/How_to_Handle_Emotion_in_the_Martial_Arts_Through_Neutronics

The interesting thing is that there is almost nothing known about emotion on this planet. It just isn’t in the book of knowledge. Haven’t seen any comprehensive and logical definition of emotion. While i don’t approach that directly in this article, I’m sure you will be able to figure it out from what i say. And, if you don’t, just keep doing your martial arts, keep matrixing them, and consider delving into neutronics.

Have a great day!

How to Do the Martial Arts Without a Body

Doing Martial Arts as an Infinite Intelligence

Sounds sort of funny, doing the martial arts as a floating mote of awareness, but that is the subject of the latest paper I uploaded to Academia. Here’s the link:

https://www.academia.edu/11152675/Doing_the_Martial_Arts_Without_a_Body

It is the story of what concepts drove me, enabled me to make it through the insanity and chaos of high school, and to find the Martial Arts.

neutronic martial arts philosophyI have spoken of some of these things before, but just felt like stating things a bit more succinctly.

Just remember, the things i speak of need certain elements.

First, a study of the martial arts to provide discipline.

Second, matrixing those martial arts so that the discipline,a nd the whole art, takes on the form of logic.

Third, everything is described in ethereal detail in my work on Neutronics.

So, there you go, hope you like it, it is at academia at the following link.

Which is Better, Jujitsu Throwing or Karate Punching

Striking v Grappling

When it comes to Jujitsu throwing or Karate punching I will always take karate punching.

I know this is going to ruffle a few feathers, but let me state my case.

Back in the sixties and seventies there weren’t many organizations, no protective gear, no mommies worrying as they watched their seven year old learn Karate. There were so few schools that I had to travel fifty miles to class, and the only people I trained with were VERY dedicated.

how to get a black belt in on yearDedicated people who didn’t sign up because they had seen a Bruce Lee movie (Bruce Lee wasn’t around when I began Karate, he was yet to come), but because something inside them was driving them.

Over the next few years protective gear was introduced, chain stores started up, people who had studied for a couple of years were promoted and went off to start their own schools, and the worth of Karate sank.

But before that happened I saw people do things that people today simply cannot do.

Can you break a standing brick with a half fist? How about sticking a hole in a board with a single finger? How about taking a full power kick to the groin?

Such things are virtually unheard of these days.

And I am not just an old fuddy duddy hearkening back to the ‘good, old days.’ The things I speak of happened, were verifiable, and the level of Karate was much higher.

Here’s the interesting thing: people can do more back flips and fancy kicks today. People can do more difficult forms.

But they are showing the fat, and the real meat hasn’t even been cooked.

Flash forward…the Ultimate Fighting Championship is the most popular arena in the world. People crowd into MMA schools so they can ground and pound, and classical karate, and Kung Fu and many other arts, are fairly well ignored, or taught to children in large chains, which merely exacerbates the problem.

Yet I have never seen anybody step into the ring and do the type of Karate punch I was trained in. I have never seen anybody who could punch an arm and break a bone with perfect focus and a calm mind.

MMA, you see, is using boxing.

Many claim that Karate punches are too stylistic, won’t work. But none of the people who say such thing trained back when these Karate did work, when students were trained until they could make Karate work, and only the dedicated survived.

How to be a Master of Karate Kicking!

Newsletter 737
Mastering Kicking in the Karate

This truly is a great morning,
you know?
I mean,
the chance to work out,
one more time!
The odd thing is
after a lifetime of work outs
one would think they would blend together
and mush up in your mind.
But the truth is the opposite,
each work out becomes more and more unique,
more singular,
more stand alone all by itself.
It is just that much fun.

kenpo karate training manualAnyway,
don’t mean to rant,
but working out is that much fun.

So let’s talk about kicking,
and,
before we get going,
let me say one thing,
the influences that made me a matrixer
are wide and varied,
and you’re about to see that.
Here are a whole bunch of bits and pieces…

I was in Kenpo,
and there was a guy there,
tall skinny hippy guy,
hair all over,
name of Ted.
Ted was a master of kickers.
when you freestyled him
he would kick your ass with kicks,
then move in and kick your ass with hands.
I mean,
those long, bony legs
just bruised the heck out of you,
set you up,
and sat you down.

He was much admired for his kicking ability.

One day he was driving,
a guy cut him off,
he honked,
and the guy got out of the car
and stomped back towards him.
Ted gets out,
and they face each other.
Ted is maybe six feet,
skinny as a rail,
looks like a hippy.
The other guy towers over him
he’s as solid as a brick shithouse.
The guy swings.
Ted leans back,
kicks him in the chest,
and sets the guy right on his fanny.
Ted say,
‘Man, I don’t want to fight!’
But the guy is now pissed.
He stands up,
swings,
and Ted leans back and kicks him,
a perfect wheel kick,
in the chin.
Guy drops.
He’s out like a light.
People are watching,
Ted drags the guy to the meridian,
leaves him on the grass,
shrugs his shoulders to the people watching,
and drives away.

That’s a one strike knockout
with a kick.
Zowie.

I,
in particular,
was curious about Ted’s training methods.
Sure,
natural talent,
but there was more.
What did Ted do for training?
And,
the interesting thing,
Ted used to get to class an hour early,
and he would go back in the back room,
close the door,
and do his private work out.
One day he didn’t close the door all the way,
and I did my pre class work out
in a position so I could watch his work out.

He started with kicks.
He just stood in one place,
and did kicks.
I got bored.
And when I happened to glance
through the door again,
he was still doing kicks.

Wait a minute!
That’s a half hour of kicks!
I did ten kicks each side,
through a half dozen kicks,
then wheezed and gasped,
and pitied myself for how exhausted and empty
my legs were.

Ted didn’t waist time pitying himself.
He just went to work.

Now,
here’s a couple of datums
that influenced me in matrixing.

First datum,
did you know that if you put two pigeons in the same cage
they will mate in six weeks.
That’s a lifetime decision.
Six weeks to make a lifetime decision.

Second datum,
every cell in the human body is replaced every six weeks.

Got it?

Now,
I was not of sufficient caliber,
I wasn’t developed enough
to make a decision,
to change my work out
to the grueling routine Ted did.
I was a white boy from suburbia,
had not a clue.

Then I went to the Kang Duk Won,
and the white boy’s eyes were opened.
i can’t tell you how grueling those work outs were.
Every hour
was the equivalent of eight hours of hard work.
My bones would be so bruised
I couldn’t press the clutch pedal in my car.
On hot summer nights,
after class,
my work out partner and I
would walk to a hamburger stand,
and drink the the equivalent of big gulp after big gulp,
trying to replace the fluids we had sweated out.
And,
speaking of sweat,
my uniform would be sopping wet after class.
I would take it off and wring it out
over the toilet,
it was like the gi had been immersed in water.

And,
eventually,
I became of caliber.
And I started working on my kicks.

I did 250 kicks, each side, for the front kick,
for the side kick,
for the wheel kick,
for the rear kick,
for the crescent kick,
for the spinning kick.

And then,
I would frequently do it again.
I would spend hours and hours doing this,
and I realized a truth.

In Karate you want your arms to be as strong as your legs,
and you want your legs to be as flexible as your arms.

And,
here’s the thing,
in six weeks I changed.
I replaced all the cells in my body,
I mated to a concept,
and my kicks started to work.

Okay,
if you want the power of the martial arts,
whether it be in kicks or punches,
in forms or some kung fu concept,
or whatever,
you have to dig deep,
and to dig deep you have to work hard.
You have to work hard until the work out is easy.

Okely dokely,
end of story,
hope it helps.
Gives you legs stronger than the Hulk.

One of the forms I used
to transform myself,
is ‘The Kicking Form.’
It is on the ‘Power Kicks’ course,
which is a freeby,
bundled with the Matrix Karate course.

You know,
the reason I bundled the Power Kicks course
in with the Matrixing Karate course,
is interesting.
If I can give you this one more aside.

Matrix Karate was the first course I made,
and when I packaged it,
I thought to myself,
you know,
I’ve never done this before,
I don’t want to make any mistakes,
I could sell this Power Kicks course by itself,
but,
if I just put it in with the Matrix Karate,
nobody can complain.
Heck,
I’ve given them more than they bought,
so how can they complain?

And I try to follow this datum on all my courses.
You’ll almost always find an extra book tossed in,
or a bundle of things
above and beyond what you order.

It’s to make up for any mistakes I make.
And it works.
Turned out to be good business sense.

when I make a mistake in burning a disk,
or the links for the downloads don’t work,
or the postal system doesn’t like me,
people don’t complain,
they know I am doing my best,
they know I am trying to give back
better than I get,
so they tend to forgive me,
and then everything gets solved
with simple communication.

So that’s the reason you usually find a little extra
on courses you get from me.

Okay,
here’s the link for the Power Kicks (Matrix Karate) course

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/matrix-karate/

So start doing your 250 kicks per kick per side,
(or maybe 300 – yowza!)
And check out the Kicking form,
let it kick your butt
until you have Fng great kicks.

And I’ll talk to you later.

Dead Martial Artists Speak!

What do Dead Martial Artists Say

Okay, speaking of dead martial artists, a nurse who tends the dying observed that her patients had five specific regrets. So let’s put these in context of the martial arts and see what happens. And if you’re not a martial artist, that’s okay. You can always go start a class in Karate, of jujitsu, or tai or hung fu or whatever.

survivalist martial art

Military Martial Arts…Hooyah!

Number one,  they wished they’d had the courage to live the life they wanted, and not the life expected of them by others. This is interesting because there are actually a large number of people out there who see the martial arts, watch Bruce Lee movies, and they just shake their heads and don’t do it. They’d prefer to be couch potatoes, not enough strength and courage to get up and walk out the door and down the street to the nearest dojo.

Number two, they wished they hadn’t worked so hard. In other words, they never took the time to smell the flowers, or to appreciate the opportunities that they had, like walking out the door and down the street to a dojo. Heck! They could have been the next MMA champ! (Insert) I coulda been the champ!

Number three, they wish they’d had the courage to express their feelings. That’s something that martial artists don’t worry about. After a night of jousting and freestyle they are pretty laid back, say whatever they want. Oddly, they are so zen empty they almost always say the right thing.

Number four, they wish they’d stayed in touch with their friends. That is true. I remember all the fantastic people I’ve crossed fists with, wrestled with on the mat, traded ideas and done martial arts drills with…but because the martial artist has done it so intensely, and because he’s reached the depths of himself, he never lacks for friends and good times.

Number five, they wish they’d let themselves be happier. This is a no brainer for a martial artist. If a guy has the courage to get up and go learn something, to become healthy and calm and find all his fantastic attributes, if he is willing to plumb to the depths of himself, to work himself to the bone to get that coveted black belt, then he is happy. A lot happier than ANYBODY who hasn’t done the martial arts. And that’s the truth.

About the author: Al Case has been having no regrets since he walked into a dojo in 1967. You can tap into his source of happiness, you can get up off that couch and start the journey in your own living room by checking out his home study martial arts courses at MonsterMartialArts.com.

The Difference Between Zen and Chi

Zen and Chi are Different, Here’s How…

Let me give you some fascinating data
about zen and chi and stuff,
but let me start out with a basketball analogy.

I was shooting baskets the other day
and really got into the zen of it.

If you look at the rim,
you miss.
If you look at the backboard,
you miss.
If you look at the space inside the ring,
swoosh.

Zen karate training manualIf you try to use muscles,
you miss.
If you push the shot,
you miss.
If you let it roll off the fingers effortlessly,
swoosh.

If you think about your body,
you miss.
If you think about the space in the ring,
until you forget your body,
swoosh.

It’s actually very interesting to do this,
and you learn something.
Do things effortlessly,
keep your mind on the goal,
and life works.

But,
since we are about martial arts,
and since my understanding of zen
came form martial arts,
let’s consider a few things.

On the ‘Matrixing Chi’ page
of Monster Martial Arts,
I put out a candle from over a foot away.
That took a lot of zen.
I had to empty my muscles.
I had to focus on the candle
until I forgot my body.
This is just a thumbnail of what I did,
there is a lot more in the book,
but it gives you an idea
of the direction I was taking.

The point here,
however,
is can you do that type of mentality
for every move in every form and every technique
in every martial art?

The candle trick is a trick,
but it has long reaching,
all encompassing effects.

What is a perfect kick?
Can you look at the target hard enough
so that you forget your own body,
and just let it happen?

Most people are into muscles,
and they miss the effortlessness required
for a perfect kick.

Don’t get me wrong,
the beginner should use muscles,
he needs to build up a certain amount of muscle,
but at a certain point
he should give up muscle.

Many people say that when you don’t use muscle
you are using chi.
They wouldn’t be wrong,
but zen is different than chi,
though there is often overlap.
Definitions and descriptions are different,
makes for confusion.
Zen is empty.
Chi is energy.
You can’t have one without the other,
but the process of creating nothingness with the mind (zen)
is different than creating the energy of chi.
But you can’t have some degree of one
without the other.

Okay,
here’s the page again,

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/4c-matrixing-chi-power/

Let me know if you have an luck with the candle trick.
And remember,
every time you fail,
you are one step closer to success.
But you have to keep working at it
to make it work.

Have a GREAT work out!

New Academic Paper on How to Kill People Using Martial Arts

Killing People with Martial Arts is Hot Topic

I just uploade a paper on how to kill people with the martial arts to Academia. Academia is a website that deals in real information. It is not like Facebook or twitter or one of those social sites; it is not interested in quips and one liners, but in sharing real information and research that will better than human being.

So how can a human being become better by knowing how to kill people with the martial arts?

Can you take somebody and ‘rag doll’ them to death?

Check out the Tai Chi Chuan course at Monster Martial Arts.

Not by kill people, but by knowing how, increases the human beings abilities an makes him larger and more capable.

Actual killing would send somebody to prison, let alone damaging their self worth. But not being able to kill somebody makes one a victim, slows them down and makes them thoughtful when survival is at hand.

kenpo karate

Fascinating book on how to align keno and make it more powerful.

Killing is an ability, and society breeds it out of us as quickly as it can. But this tends to make us easily controlled, and even frightened of the world behind us.

The safest communities, and the most polite, are those where guns can be carried and used with impunity.

Anyway, if you are interested in actual information regarding this subject, maybe breaking free of the political correctness that assails you (whether you like it or not), then check out my paper on how to kill people using such fighting disciplines as Karate, kung fu, and other martial arts.

The Secret of a Long Body in the Martial Arts

Secrets to a Long Life in the Martial Arts

I did Tai Chi in the fog this morning.
Oddly, a warm fog.
But spectacular.
I close my eyes
so I can better not see my body,
Until it feels like I have no body
and am pure me.
Pure ‘I am.’
Finally,
lower the hands
and the rest of the day
is filled with light and energy.
I recommend it to you.

survivalist martial artLet me tell you a couple of secrets…

First,
you don’t need much sleep.
Eight hours sleep is what mothers foist on their children
so they can have a little peace and quiet.
Thomas Edison got by on something like four hours a night,
and a catnap during the day.
So only sleep when you are tired,
not because the clock says to,
or everybody else is.
I get some of my best work done
when everybody else is sleeping.

Second,
while you should gear yourself towards organic foods,
you can pretty much eat what you want to…
IF YOU ARE WORKING OUT EVERY DAY!
Man, let me yell that again.
Have you ever noticed that the people
who hang out in health food stores
are often gaunt and ill shapen?
They are eating the right things,
but without the exercise
it doesn’t mean much.
My general rule is to stay away from synthetics
(pesticides, hormones, additives,
wax, coloring, GMO, etc.)
but I can eat what I want
because working out every day
detoxes me naturally.

Third,
make your muscles long.
Here’s the trick,
your body is compacted all day long.
Gravity pushes on it,
you push on objects,
push, push, push.
So pull it.
Elongate it.
Lengthen it.
Your body elongates a half inch or so while sleeping,
it shrinks a half inch or so
while walking around during the day.
When your body is injured
it is often because it has been compacted
(hit upon and forcibly shrunk)
So stretch it out.
Here’s the thing,
a body that is compacted
does not react as fast.
It loses fluidity of motion.

Now,
here’s something most people don’t consider:
working out doesn’t make your body long.
There is impact, there is force,
and the body compacts.
Gets healthier for the work,
but the muscles don’t get long.
So you stretch before class.
But…do you stretch after class?
Do you stretch at odd times during the day?

Now,
there’s a lot more to be considered,
meat vs veggies,
more sleep after injury
what type of martial art gives the best work out
and so on and so on.
But,
these things have to do with balance
and finding your personal path.
The three things, I have mentioned here,
forget obsessing on sleep,
eat what you want as long as you work out,
and have long muscles,
are the key to it all.
Do these things
and you will find your body getting
strong and stronger and stronger.

Okaly doggaly
let me give you my recommendation
for making long muscles.
Yoga.
Now,
oddly,
Yoga is harder to do than martial arts.
That’s if you get into the deep postures,
focus on the hours long meditation,
and so on.

But if you just take the basic postures
and flow through them tai chi style,
maybe holding each posture for a breath cycle or two,
then yoga actually works a lot better
than some of the more extreme methods.

You just sit or stand or lie down,
and let the body stretch.

And here’s something I found interesting:
what muscles are you using when you stretch?
To stand and just extend the arms towards the alls,
what muscles are you using?
I mean,
the muscles are connected to the skeleton,
and the muscles are all ‘pulling’ muscles,
So how do you ‘pull’ the body longer
when the muscles are on the inside?
Weird, eh?

Anyway,
the program I designed for Yoga
is called Yogata,
Yogata stands for
‘Yoga Kata,’
and it does what I describe here.
Lengthens and relaxes the muscles,
easy to do,
more flow,
and it REALLY works.

Excellent for edging around injuries,
finding extra balance in the body,
and it DEFINITELY makes the muscles longer and stronger.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/yogata-the-yoga-kata/

Now,
I know most of you guys are in great shape.
But if you have an injury you want to fix,
even and especially an old injury,
if you just want some more stretch
so you can get higher kicks,
or you just want the extra speed that longer muscle gives,
then check Yogata out.

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts/yogata-the-yoga-kata/

Now,
one last thing.
I forgot,
I actually forgot,
my yearly New Year’s request.

Forgive me.
If I have messed up an order,
said something you didn’t like,
done ANYTHING else that require it…
forgive me.

This is a hard world,
and life works better,
for you and for me,
if we forgive.
If we grant a little kindness,
realize that that stubbed toe isn’t all that bad,
that life is better if we ease up a bit
and forgive.

Thanks.

I appreciate it.

And,
that all said…
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.

so they work the way they are supposed to.
