Start Your own School Package
Happy After Valentine’s Day!
Hope you got everything
your little heart desires.
If you didn’t,
better just work out more.
got an interesting email the other day,
the essence of the question
had to do with
when do you teach CBM.
Coordinated Body Motion.
Moving all parts of the body at the same time.
The answer is that you start teaching it on day one,
and if the guy is still your student
50 years later,
you should still be teaching CBM.
CBM is the motion between stances.
You should be striving to improve motion
your whole life.
Here’s a neutronic datum:
That which doesn’t have motion is dead.
Study the motion of everything in life,
if you want to be alive.
And the interesting thing about that
is that even if you are dead,
you will still be studying motion.
There you are,
without a body,
figuring out how to move the viewpoint that is you.
if you have matrixed your martial arts,
then you know the truth,
do an opposite motion to create motion.
But everybody knows that.
Let me ask you a question
that you never thought of:
How do you walk?
you are standing there
and you decide to move,
what is the actual mechanism involved?
how do you unbalance yourself,
so you can fall forward,
and catch yourself with your legs,
and actually move?
The answer is that if you have CBMed
you have to fall forward.
But if you haven’t CBMed,
then you have to tilt your body
in both directions,
to fall in one.
it’s not efficient,
but it sure is an argument for CBM.
Odd thing is,
I’m probably the only guy in the world
that ever asked this question.
(‘Oh, no,’ says Joe Belt, ‘we have that in our art!’)
But the question is valid.
How do you make motion?
And the most uncoordinated guy in the world,
has to throw himself in both directions,
to tilt himself off balance,
and thus walk,
or make any kind of motion.
or have an inordinate amount of martial arts,
and you just go forward.
You just…do it.
No pre-motion unbalancing act,
just move in a direction.
The end of telegraphing your motion.
do this for every single motion,
in every single form,
and you will be more than enlightened.
thought I’d throw all that out for you.
If you really want to explore the concept,
just matrix your forms.
Explore your forms,
the key is redundancy and repetition,
until you are uniquely aware.
And, that said,
I want to go into something
that is a bit different.
Some people think the economy sucks.
They work for a living,
they get a good wage,
when they can work,
when they have a job,
when their hours aren’t cut,
and so on.
But the economy doesn’t actually suck.
What sucks is that you are working for somebody else.
If you are working for yourself,
then you can control your income.
If you work for yourself,
the economy slowing down
It won’t effect you.
as soon as you see less money,
you just put in a little more effort,
and you have more money.
Read those last four lines again,
that is a truth in this universe.
Don’t have enough money?
But you can’t do that
if you are relying on somebody else
for your job,
for your income.
I went into business for myself
at about age 30.
So for over 35 years
I have never had a slump.
I’ve lost work,
but I just go out and get some more.
why am I telling you this?
Because I want you to break out,
to go into business for yourself.
I want you to have as much money when you want,
whenever you want.
Here’s the funny thing,
before I went into business for myself,
what got me to the point
where I could break out,
and go into business,
I started teaching Karate
all by myself.
I did that,
and suddenly I thought about
doing other things!
if I can make a few extra bucks
doing what I love,
why can’t I start a business?
You don’t have to invest money,
you just get passionate
in talking with people,
and do what you love.
here’s the deal.
