Geomteric Analysis of the Whole Martial Arts

Here’s How you assemble the pieces!

All righty and happy work out to all!
A work out a day keeps the doctor away!
And the psychiatrist,
and the marriage counselor,
and the medication,
and the blues,
and…I hope you get the idea
that Martial Arts really works.
Now go work out!

Now,
I actually had a bunch of wins come in over the last week,
I try to give one a newsletter,
so be patient if you’ve got one coming,
and let me know if I miss you…
so here is the win from Brad Wyman.

Mr Case-
     I truly appreciate the KDW levels… 
     I started studying Shorin-Ryu again w/ an instructor from Okinawa in March, & have been using Matrix plot tables to work out the techniques & applications- new & old alike. After demonstrating some of my knowledge & experience to him, a Shodan Black Belt test was scheduled for early July. Nidan is on the calendar for December. I will embark on Sandan material in a few wks & plan to have it ready by then as well.
     When I have trained & studied Arts in the past, the ‘Monkey-See-Monkey-Do’ curriculum has truly taken a couple of yrs to gain proficiency. Using Matrix theory & applying mathematical analysis has not only gotten the multiple courses you’ve supplied “downloaded”, but I’ve also used it to learn other Arts, & other subjects.
     Matrix techniques have allowed me to shave yrs, possibly decades from my own Martial Art studies, & have illuminated some of the next steps I’d already been working through. Soon I may actually begin to accept the inquiries & compliments as to my ‘Mastery’ of Karate w/ out dissembling or denial. We’ll just have to see-
   I’d learned about Matrix tables YRS ago in Calculus. But it took your example & techniques to jump start my brain, to think ‘Outside the Box’ of how to apply/use them in everyday life.
     We’ve not met in person, but I wanted you to know that Matrixing has made an incredible impact in my life, these past 2+ yrs.
     I had still been working on my Master’s this past October, but I fully expect to complete my PhD by Year’s End. That is in part, due to utilizing Matrixing to break down the data into manageable, logical & more easily ‘digestable’ chunks.
     Although you figured this out yrs ago, these’re just a couple examples of how else Matrixing can be used.
Thanks again. Until Next Time- Brad W

Thanks Brad,
I am humbled by your accomplishments.

Now,
for all of you out there,
Brad has quite a few of my courses.
I know,
sounds like a sales pitch,
but the fact is this,
Matrixing is simple,
but you need to get a few viewpoints of it.
You could get
Matrixing: The Master Text,
at ChurchofMartialarts.com,
and that would give you the whole thing,
but that’s more of an easy reference
once you have done everything.
Really, you need to go through a few courses,
get the picture from several different angles.

Sometimes somebody can go through a single course,
he’s ready,
the lights go on,
and zowie!
his life is different.
But,
like I said,
most people need a few courses.

it’s just that people start from different places,
come into this thing
with different experiences,
and they need a few different angles
to really get this Matrixing thing.

The thing is this:
it’s a field of knowledge,
never been explored before,
and it takes whatever it takes
to accumulate enough of this knowledge
to be able to start thinking in it.

Let me give you an analogy.

If you were going to learn mathematics
it actually breaks down something like this…

You learn basic math and you are learning positive numbers.
You learn algebra and you are learning negative numbers.
You learn calculus and you are learning about curves.
You learn trigonometry and you are learning triangles.

Now,
anybody who knows math
knows I have badly misstated this.
There is overlap from one field of math to the next,
my definitions aren’t that clear,
but…it does vaguely represent math.

Now,
that’s how it is in the martial arts.
Karate is a positive line
Shaolin is circles
Wing Chun is negative angulation
Aikido is negative circles
and so on and so on.
Every art has a geometric equivalent.
BUT,
they are all mushed up.
And there is fantastic overlap of technique
from one art to the next.

And here’s the cruel thing…
I tell this to people
and they say,
‘Oh, we have that.’
And they are thinking that
in their kenpo or taekwondo or whatever,
they have elements of circular angularity,
or negative circles,
or whatever.
Well,
of course they do,
but it is all mushed together.
And,
not to be brutal here,
it means their mind is all mushed together.

Until Matrixing,
you see,
there was no way to separate the arts,
make them pure,
put them in their assigned geometry,
and even if they know of this analogy I have just stated…
they are going to stay mushed up.
Thinking they are right,
and not understanding that
you have to go through enough arts to understand
how to straighten it all up,
and separate the mush.

Somebody does Matrix Karate.
They get it,
and I know who they are because
they suddenly start ordering everything I’ve got.
They are drinking the data,
guzzling it down wholesale,
straightening up the mess in their mind
as fast as they can.

Or,
somebody orders a course and goes away,
it is because he didn’t get a big enough chunk of info,
or he got the wrong course and information,
or,
more likely,
he didn’t apply himself and actually DO the material.
And,
except for insanity,
that’s it!
That’s about all the reasons there are
for somebody to not want their mind to function
about a 100 times better that it has been!

Now,
the message is this,
to learn how to matrix,
I suggest you start with the first course,
and just go down the courses
as they are listed
on the front page of Monster Martial Arts.
And actually DO them.

Not just peruse them and think you’ve got it,
but DO them.

That list of courses on the front page
approximates the order I discovered them in,
and it is the order I teach them in,
and it seems to work best.

Simply,
it is arranged like math,
the simplest subject first,
and each subject a different viewpoint,
a different way of arranging the matrixing tables.

And take the time
to actually DO every course.
If it’s not your cup of tea,
that’s fine,
but at least go through everything a few dozen times,
search to make sure,
look for the subtle points and the nuances,
and make sure you understand
and see the connection
between the matrixing table
and the art taught.

You do that and you’ll end up with wins like Brad’s…
guaranteed.

Oinkey dokely,
I’ve got to run,
I will be on the road starting next Wednesday.
I will have a computer with me,
and should be able to stay current,
except for a 3-4 day stretch when I am in the wilderness.
But,
if I don’t answer an email,
be patient.

And thanks.
Thanks for being martial artists.
You are the finest,
most intelligent,
most important
people on earth.

Have a great work out!

Al

Here’s the first course on the list…

Quick Fix Martial Arts!

I came across a great ad today.
It was in my email box,
attached as an add on to a prepper newsletter I get.
Normally I trust these guys,
but when I saw the ad
I had to recalibrate.
Cancel city, here I come.
The ad,
you see,
was for the martial arts.

Oh,nothing wrong with martial arts ads,
they open doors,
but this ad was a repackaging of an old program.
Same thing advertised years ago.
same techniques,
same grainy tape.
But it’s the advertising tactics that got me.
For instance…

“Live without fear the rest of your life!”
I didn’t know I was in fear.
I suppose in high school I was in fear.
But soon as I left that snakepit…
no…
I’m not living in fear.

Another catch line they had was

‘Watch (this video) once,
practice it if you want,
use it tomorrow.’

So,
no study,
no practice,
and it will be usable.
Huh!

I say do my courses,
practice the crap out of them.
and they become workable.
But practice!
And,
may I point out
that practice is fun,
and not something you should sneer at,
as this ad does.

And,
my favorite,
there are special forces and SEALs and
all manner of terrorist killers
who praise this tape as the way they are alive today.

15 techniques,
that’s all,
and the baby will be safe and genetically sound.

I could go on for a few hours on this type of stuff,
but it is really counter productive.
So let me just say this…

Would you rather buy a quick fix,
that always includes
a kick to the pomegranates,
a poke to the eyes,
and a poke to the eyes
that will raise his hands
so you can kick him in the pomegranates?
Or would you rather buy a complete art?

They say 15 techniques
and you will be safe from all the convicts
drug dealing
rapists
murderer scum in the world.
I say you should forget the fairy tales,
and get to work.

Fancy talking vs your own hard work.

Now,
let me explain something,
what I do is an education.
What they do is make money.
Nothing wrong with making money,
making money is good,
as long as you are offering a solid product in exchange for it.

Let me explain something,
the structure of these ads goes like this.

Make the sucker like you,
as soon as he likes you scare him with a problem,
then offer him the solution to the problem for a slight fee.

That’s how it works.

Let me rewrite that for you…
Share your desires for a good home and a job you love until he knows he is just like you,
then tell him a burglar is going to break in and rape your girl and your dog,
and then sell him a burglar alarm system.

It doesn’t matter if the system is a bunch of empty cans you tie to a doorknob,
what matter is that you got his money.

Do you understand?

Now,
examine the structure of what I do.
You don’t have to like me.
There is a problem in the martial arts of education,
I offer that education.

Let me rewrite that for you.
I know that people are different,
I know that there are going to be people who don’t understand or like what I’m going to do,
that’s just the way the world works,
and I hope you understand that.

The martial arts have been mixed up,
crossbred,
dumbed down,
made into a Three Stooges fire drill,
and I have the method to fix that.

But,
you need to get some simple tools
and use them till they come out your ears.

Sure,
it’s a quick fix,
but only if you’re work intensive.
Yes,
you can earn a belt fast,
but if you think it’s going to be a gift,
you should go find one of those internet scammers.

Look,
I sell (for instance)
the Matrix Karate course.
The forms are arranged
so the techniques are in order,
and presented in two man format
so you get used to standing and facing and fighting.

But you are going to have to stand and face and fight,
or you are going to get nothing out of it!

And I present a handful of techniques,
but then I show you how to matrix them,
so they multiply like logical rabbits.
Within a few minutes that handful of techniques becomes
squared, then squared again,
and suddenly you have thousands of techniques,
but they are not illogical!
They make sense,
they fight together,
and they even fit together with other arts!

Do you have to do thousands of techniques?
No,
but you have to do the handful of techniques,
and understand the logic
and you have to do them until they come out your ears.

Anybody who thinks I don’t love the martial arts,
and that I have not sweated for ever 45 years,
is a fool.

This is not a quick fix,
this is an education.
And it is a VERY sad truth,
that nobody has this education.
It really is.

Let me tell you a secret.
I bruised for the first seven years.
Then I started figuring it out,
and I stopped bruising.
Yep.
My body actually doesn’t bruise.
Not hardly at all.
Rarely.
And,
here’s the funny thing,
if I don’t think about the technique,
if I let it out
even just a little,
the people I block get BIG bruises.

Now,
how can you get somebody to get that ability,
except through hard work and sweat and even a little blood?

But,
it’s all a matter of awareness,
of focusing awareness through doing the blocks enough,
until you become sufficiently aware of the body,
and then it just doesn’t bruise anymore.
Or,
other things can happen,
but bruises don’t.
Now,
the ONLY way to teach that,
is through hard work.

BUT,
if you make the hard work logical,
then you cut the time down
by half,
by four times.
Heck,
in some cases
you can cut training time down by ten.

But,
work,
focus awareness,
but logically,
that is my secret.

So,
if you think you can read once,
not practice,
and be a Navy SEAL tomorrow,
go for it.

But,
if you want to learn a complete martial art,
all the bells and whistles,
all the guts and trim,
all the joy and hard work…
then you have to be willing to get a course,
set up a few striking targets,
get a few friends over to the garage a few nights a week,
work out like a dog,
bruise and sweat,
AND HAVE SOME MOFO FUN!

There isn’t any other way.

Oinkey donkey,
I hope I’m preaching to the choir,
because I would hate to have my words wasted on Beavis and Butthead.

Now,
go through my arts,
pick the one you don’t know,
pick the one that will enhance your training.

If you know grappling and knees and elbows,
pick up Matrix Karate,
it will be fists and feet.

If you know Karate and pa kua,
if you know fists and feet and how to get arond somebody,
then pick up Shaolin Butterfly,
figure out how to angle in on the distance and close with somebody.
Then check out the Matrix Kung Fu so you can take ‘em down.

Look,
go to this page

http://monstermartialarts.com/martial-arts-articles/martial-arts-styles-are-all-the-same/

It shows you how to break the martial arts down,
and not in a cookie cutter approach,
but for yourself.
Do the table I show,
analyze your abilities at
hand, foot, knee, elbow, throw,
and then figure out what you need to make your art whole.
Heck,
write me an email if you find something confusing,
or if you aren’t sure which course will fix which distance.
But here’s a break down for you…

fists = matrix karate
feet = Power Kicks (a free bonus on the MAtrix Karate course)
knees and elbows = blinding steel.
(Yes, there is a short but sure matrix of knee and elbow training drills on that course)
stand up takedowns and throws = Matrix Kung Fu.

Just go through your art,
be honest about what you are lacking,
then fill in the pieces.

Could anything be easier?
Could anything be more logical?
I mean,
here are the keys to the kingdom!

Dopuble Oinkey Donkey.
I’m out of here.
Don’t mean to be abrupt,
but I have to see a man about a work out.
I’m the man,
and it’s my work out.
And you guys and gals…
enjoy the heck out of your own work out,
remember,
every form is a prayer.
So pray a lot,
and should that fight ever happen,
you will have a heaven of a chance.

Extreme Martial Arts are Another Form of Mysticism

I know, I’m (choke) old. But the trick is real, and I’ll tell you about extreme martial arts and mysticism and all that stuff right after the video.

Extreme martial arts covers a lot of territory: the best martial art, the secret martial art, and so on. And it is bogus.

Think of it this way. A fifth grader sits in a 2nd grader’s class. He knows how to multiply, so he has this big inner chuckle when he sees all these second graders adding 2 + 2 and getting 5.

Would you call the fifth grader a mystic? A sage? An extreme mathematician?

Well, to the second graders he is.

To the 9th graders, however, he is a knothead.

The martial arts are like that.

Some guy knows karate,or taekwondo, or kenpo, and the fellows who know Tai Chi or Pa Kua or Aikido…they have a big inner chuckle.

But, to a guy who knows Matrixing…we won’t use the word knothead, but you get the idea.

The Kenpoka or karateka or taekwondoka is blcoking and kicking and punching.

The taichoka or Pakuakoka or aikidoka puts his arms in the same positions, but he does different things with the energy inside.

The Matrixer, however, knows why.

It’s all about science, you see. The hard style martial artist is watching water boil on the stove. The soft stylist is turning on the stove. The matrixer knows why.

And, because he follows a science, instead of a bunch of random moves with some loose theory, the matrixer learns faster.

Not twenty years to mastery, or even ten. No, no. A matrixer learns at a glance, intuitively, so once he has understood matrixing principles, his rate of learning is usually three times faster, but can be as much as ten times faster.

Science, man. Not mysticism. That’s the secret of Extreme Martial Arts. Drop by my website and pick up a free book on the Science of Matrixing.

I Tell Ya, The Martial Arts Makes Ya Stupid!

One of the weird things I do is check the internet for my name. I want to check on articles, just glance around and see what I’m doing out there.

And, I found my name coming up in a forum. It wasn’t too bad, the usual scholarly dissertation on IMO, website is cheesy, guy should be avoided, that sort of thing.

And I had a thought, made me grin, sort of funny.

I say that people can learn faster.

These guys are saying you can’t.

Do you get it?

They are arguing that they are, uh, not smart.

I know, I know, that was cruel. Please excuse me, that was uncalled for.

So why am I still laughing?

Anyway, I have the greatest confidence in them. They weren’t unusually mean, and I think (hope) that I detected a little interest.

You guys have a great week, and, uh, give me ten push ups if you laughed.

Drop on by Monster Martial Arts if you want to get unusually Martial Arts Smart!

The Things That Happen to a Person After a Lifetime of Martial Arts Practice

The real effects of Martial Arts practice are quite a bit more involved than most people imagine. Most people, you see, study Tang Soo Do or Shaolin for a couple of years, and they are just tapping into the real benefits of the martial arts. Then they get distracted by marriage or kids, their only involvement is really through admiring stars like Jackie Chan or Jet Li, and their path has effectively ended.

You recognize these fellows because their gis are hanging in the closet, as if they would use on the morrow, but they don’t use them. this is a tragedy, because it is like buying half a car, or wearing one pant, and they don’t understand what could have been. They don’t understand that a little work and patience and the world would have opened up to them in unbelievable ways.

It takes several years to get to first degree black belt in most martial arts styles. It used to take a shorter period of time, but a lot of junk has weighted down many arts. If you separate the mix of arts, the commercial and tournament flavors and so on, then you can actually get to black belt within twelve months.

At any rate, when a person achieves a black belt they come into this thing I call CBM (Coordinated Body Motion). They lose a bit of reaction time, and this makes them speedier, and their body movement becomes smoother. Unfortunately, many systems obsess on strength, or other things that disrupt natural movements, and this pretty effectively ends the training cycle.

If the martial art system they are studying is worth its salt, they still run into things like marriage and kids and bills. They don’t see to the end of the long path, you see, and they don’t make the necessary sacrifice to walk it. Sooner or later, they give up working out.

If they do keep working out, however, after about twenty years of practice a person masters his art. This can actually be done in 3 or 4 years, but most instructors don’t know enough about actual teaching to help the student do it this fast. They may know the martial arts, but knowing teaching is an entirely different bundle of wires.

Once a person has become a martial arts master, however, he starts to see the truth of his powers. He understands how he has become more intuitive, and he finally realizes that he has been creating abilities that other people don’t know anything about. He becomes bigger, a giant, really, and he tends to be patient with people who are like children to his increased awareness.

The fighting practices of the east are ancient ones, and the effects have been well documented. In modern times, however, with the advent of corruptive methods and lack of adherence to what works, these effects are not so clean cut. It is easy, however, to correct your martial arts practice, and to reach the status of the ancients easily.
