Another Master Instructor at Monster Martial Arts!

Ty Hatfield is Master Instructor Number 52,
he completed the Master Instructor Course offered through Monster Martial Arts,
and here is his win…

…to be honest, it is all about Position. Too many teach (just the) moves. I take that move from many (different) positions and can see it not only from one way but in a 3d kind of thinking. It is like being able to see a floor plan and not only put in the Fire Sprinkler system but the Ductwork, electrical, walls, ceilings, to be honest from one glance I can see everything at one time. I see this in my mind, and I’m able to feel it from many points of views 🙂
See what I’m talking about?
Thanks,
Ty Hatfield

Thank you,
Master Instructor Hatfield,

Now,
a couple of things.
I know there are a few people blinking,
after all, over 50 Master instructors in a couple of years…
what the heck is on that Master Instructor Course?
Because all the Master Instructors
are giving wins like this,
they all talk about being able to see what is going on in the other guy’s head,
being able to see what people are going to do
just by looking at their bodies.

What is on the course is simple…
it is the actual data as to perfect body alignment,
and the actual data that enables one
to make any technique work any time.
Period.

Ty is a grappler,
and I have other Master instructors that have studied Karate and Silat and JKD and judo andTaekwondo
and on and on and on…
The principles are universal,
and this is the only time in the history of the planet that they have been defined.
simply,
you can use them.
Well,
congrats to Master Instructor Ty
and well done.
I hope many follow your path.

The Master Instructor Course is available at Monster Martial Arts.

The Fastest Way to Become a Martial Arts Teacher

The most respected career in the world is that of the Martial Arts Instructor. The guy who teaches Aikido or Jujitsu is surrounded at parties by people wishing to know about what he is doing. People listen to his words like they are gold, and frequently, what he says does turn out to be gold.

Somebody who wants to be an Karate Master or a Taekwondo Master has got to be in top physical condition. This means able to work out for long hours at a time, and able to have explosive power, no matter how long and hard he has been working out, on the instant. Anybody can have this type of conditioning if they are willing to work out and dedicate themselves.

To become a Martial Arts Teacher one must be a hard worker. He has to be willing to work with people long hours, six days of the week. This is sometimes hard to do, but a person who really loves the art will have no difficulty with this kind of schedule, doing something like Kenpo is that much fun.

The most crucial thing, however, if one wishes to launch themselves into this incredibly exciting profession, is that they must know the martial arts better than than anybody. They must study and practice as many different martial arts as they can, and know as many martial arts techniques as they can. One never knows when a situation will arise, even when instructing, which will require that extra bit of knowledge.

Sometimes a curious student will put up a ‘what if,’ and that question must be handled with confidence and competence. And, there is always the rare chance of a challenge, some bad *ss bully will saunter into your martial arts dojo and demand a match. A good martial arts instructor will deal with that fellow, hopefully without violence, but handle the bully he has to!

The best method for making a martial arts master with this much knowledge and ability, who can take down the largest gangbanger in the world with no fuss or bother, is probably Matrix Martial Arts. There will be argument, of course, but Matrixing, in the right mitts, is the quickest way of learning martial arts that are fast, workable, and Johnny knock your block off!

Matrixing is actually a logical method that has been used to teach arts as varied as Ninjitsu, capoeira, and, get this, medieval swordfighting! With Matrixing one logically evaluates the possibility of combat, takes into account everything that could happen, and then selects the right answer to the problem. Of course, even with matrixing, one must train hard and work long hours, but, again, it is so much fun that it really isn’t even work.

Now, if Matrixing isn’t what you want, then you should take a gander at JKD training methods, kung fu training drills, or some other way that gives quick, fast results. After all, even if you decide not to be a martial arts teacher, you should know how to protect yourself and those you love. And that is the straight skinny on how to become a martial arts teacher in the fastest possible time.

Monster Newsletter #322–Forty Master Instructors!

Good morning!
Fantastic morning!
Perfect for working out!
Absolutely perfect!

Now,
I actually have a whole ton of things for the newsletter,
wins,
got a great technique for knife fighting,
some fellow tried to mess with me on the street and some interesting things happened,
but,
everything gets bumped when I get to say…
congrats to our latest Master instructor!

James J. Morrell wrote me a wonderful win,
and here are some parts of it.

Al,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the knowledge I received from your Master Instructor Course. I have never before had techniques explained to me in such an in depth, but simplistic way.
My journey in the martial arts began when I was a teenager in the 1980’s. I started as a student of Kang Duk Won Karate. When I turned eighteen, I joined the army and had the opportunity to travel and see the world. I was exposed to several different types of martial arts to include: military combatives, Chinese Boxing, Shaolin Wushu, and Tae Kwon Do. I was never able to progress in an art as far as I wanted to because my job as a soldier kept me moving around. Although my journey has been an “on again, off again” one, I have not given up. I am now a police officer and have continued my studies in the art of Hapkido. Part of my job is to teach law enforcement defensive tactics. I also teach a women’s self defense class.
Your course has opened my eyes and given me ideas on how I can improve the way I am currently teaching. I totally agree with your greatest strategy….
(sorry guys and gals, James discusses the course material itself art this point)
…the materials that you included in your course were great. The manual and DVDs really complimented each other.
Thanks again for all the information. I look forward to taking more of your courses in the future.

Sincerely,
James J. Morrell

Thanks James,
and congrats for being Master Instructor #40.

Wow.
Forty people now know the exact data on how to teach.
And there is exact data.
Listen,
there are so many martial arts instructors out there
and they really know the martial arts.
But the art of teaching is separate from the martial arts.
Two different fields.
And,
I hate to say it,
when you go to school to learn how to teach,
they either don’t teach you the right data,
or it is not martial arts specific.
I mean,
the colleges of today,
with all their physics and slide rules
have no clue
on how to make perfect form
and how to make perfect technique.

They don’t.

It is data that I put together,
and you will see it nowhere outside of my courses.

Well, maybe if you are lucky enough to be studying
with one of the Forty Master Instructors!

Now,
one other thing
of particular juiciness
at least to me…
James turns out to be one of my Martial cousins.
My base art was the Kang Duk Won,
I studied it in San Jose under Bob Babich.
James studied the KDW out in New York!

One of the things I have done is write a bunch of articles about the KDW
and plant them around the net,
so every once in a while it is like old home week.

Interestingly,
KDW
is a unique and rather pure Karate system.
It didn’t come from Funakoshi,
but from a classmate of Funakoshi
and the classmate had studied shaolin.
Makes for a very powerful combination.

One of these newsletters I’ll write a short history on the KDW,
its sort of an eye opener.
Quite honestly,
I don’t think I would have come up with Matrixing
if it hadn’t been for the Kang Duk Won,
and specifically,
Bob Babich.

So I have a bunch of stuff for the next half a dozen newsletters.
should keep me out of trouble.
And,
when you find out about my altercation
you’re are going to know
I need to be kept out of trouble.
Heh.

Well,
this is a shorty,
I have a ton of stuff I have to do,
so I’ll talk to you later,
and James,
congrats again,
and thanks for really making my day.
