Monster Newsletter #247–CBM, Matrixing and Mushin!
You can take off your mask now.
Sniffle, snork, snarf!
Ain’t I funny?
I met one of my long time students in a bank.
It was halloween
and some guy was standing in line
with a mask on.
Needless to say,
a guard came up and asked him to take off his mask.
Makes you think,
Makes me think that halloween
would be the best day in the world
for robbing banks.
there are actually three things
that happen in the martial arts.
First is the concept of CBM.
Coordinated Body Motion.
Classical artists say
‘Move the body as one unit,’
but they don’t tell you how,
except in the most general terms.
Done their way it takes three years.
Getting my data and it take a couple of months.
The concept is not hard,
I mention it often,
show people how to do it.
A little practice,
and intention starts to move through the body.
Begin all motion at the same time.
End all motion at the same time.
Figure out proportionate ranges of motions
and energy input for appropriate masses of body.
Sort of like a mathematical formula.
Probably could make one pretty easy.
And I’d do it,
except you can just trust yourself
and be intuitive
and CBM comes pretty fast.
the second thing is matrixing.
virtually nobody in the history of the world has done matrixing.
Logic just wasn’t wide spread,
so people memorized routines,
tried to get the big picture.
Got a heck of a lot fine and big martial artists,
but it takes them so long,
and then they can’t get anybody to do what they did.
So the myth of DNA starts.
It’s in the blood, man.
Intuition can be learned,
you just have to overcome the blank spots in your mind,
you have to matrix,
fill in the pieces of the puzzle,
make sense out of the thing,
you have instant ability.
the third thing has been achieved,
but not by many,
almost by accident,
in spite of the fact
that they had no matrixing.
is testament to the magnitude and quality
of the martial artists of planet earth.
The third thing is usually referred to Mushin no shin
in the japanese.
Mind of no mind.
the fellow has jumped out of his mind,
is responding in the now,
with no distractions
I sometimes call it
Time of No Time.
something happens in a combat situation
you sort of jump out of your body a little
and let’s say a fist is moving faster than the eye can see,
faster than the mind can register,
you see it.
You see it,
and it can even be slow,
but there is no lapsing of perception,
no moments when you can’t see it,
you track it and handle it without effort.
if you efforted,
you aren’t in Mushin no shin
Time of no time
mind of no mind
and in the now.
matrixing opens the door instantly
to the potential of Mind of No Mind.
No blank spots
to interfere with your perception.
it still takes discipline.
A guy with lots of martial arts
and lots of data aligns
and the picture that suddenly makes sense,
it quite large
he hits Mushin no shin
like a fng freight train,
a guy with little experience
lacks sufficient data,
and when the pieces are assembled
and the puzzle revealed
and the now presented
and the picture isn’t big enough.
Most of these fellows
don’t think badly of me,
and maybe they understand
deep down in their souls
how easy the martial arts are going to be
and how different they are going to be,
but they lack the data
and therefore the comprehension
of what has happened.
The really odd thing
is going to be when everybody in the world
it will happen.
People learn by osmosis.
Enough people start matrixing,
and the others will pick up on it,
people will wonder what it was like
to have reaction time
and to be in mystery
as to what technique they are going to use,
of how intuition protects them,
and how the art develops intuition and therefore
the art protects them.
one last thing,
how much matrixing does a fellow need
for it to blast off in his mind?
I find that an intriguing question.
Everybody is different
with different experiences
and the answer is going to be different
maybe a fellow has a realization on Matrix Karate.
Another guy is going to have to
do every course I have,
and then ask for help.
most people realize
in accordance with the amount
of accumulated martial knowledge they have.
it is a crap shoot.
Depends on your mind
and its willingness to accept
the fact that the ‘software’ I propose
is so smooth and easy to absorb.
I would guess that one to four courses
is the norm.
That sort of fits
with the data I get
from people who order the courses.
except for one.
Matrixing has never been on this planet.
Not even the Boolean figurers
had an idea
where I would go with this stuff.
Mind of No Mind…
Look at the price I charge
and know that it is a gift.
know something else…
that I hope you have sufficient martial arts
that you can fend off the ghosts and goblins
you try to throw you down
and steal from your sack of sweets
