Win #38–The Skinny on the Butterfly Shaolin Kung Fu

I get a lot of wins like the one just following…

Hey Al,
        Hope all is well with you I was reading through some of your articles and was wondering if you have anything on your Butterfly Palm Kung Fu? Will there be anything in the future? A lot of good stuff on your site and I have thoroughly enjoyed pouring over it thus far. I am starting to save my pennies so you can expect an order fairly soon.
   Thanks!
Take care and God Bless!

I studied Karate, Tai Chi, Pa kua, Aikido, Wing Chun, and lots of other stuff. Oddly, I had never studied Shaolin. Then this guy walks into my school, we end up exchanging systems, and I get a fair amount of Fut Ga Saholin, which is pretty much the same as Hung Gar, Choy Le Fut, or that ilk of classical Shaolin.
The Butterfly is a condensation of the concepts and principles I learned, and put together on a different and more logical footwork. Makes it quicker and easier to learn, and you get to tap into that classical Shaolin Power.
That’s theskinny on the Butterfly Shaolin Kung Fu, and have a great day…

Win #26–I’m Giving Away a Free Martial Arts Book!

Yup, a Free Martial Arts Book. Here’s the link.

Free Martial Arts Book

It’s not a huge one, about 46 pages. And you’ll even see some ads. What’s worse is that the ads are funky. I was playing around with a writing style when I did them. The real joy, however, is that the artwork is beautiful, and the instruction is done in verse, and that makes it comparable to The Tao, but Karate specific.
Just think, a thousand years from now people will be pouring over this little book, maybe the two companion books (only five bucks each), wondering what the verses mean. But the only reason the verses will be confusing then is because people won’t speak the same ‘English’ as we do today.
That’s okay, they’ll figure it out. I have faith in them. Here’s a win you might like.

“Problem solving. Really, you can apply Al’s breakdown of the martial arts which in turn is applied to problem solving in every day life! Can you handle the fist? Can you handle that person? Can you handle that intention? Can you handle life? Well, you will teach yourself how. Again, YOU will teach yourself how.”

Isn’t that interesting? That a win like that, about that subject, will happen in a martial arts class? Well, I teach a little differently than everybody else, and I’m sure you’ll figure that out once you’ve read my Free Martial Arts Book.
